To the editors of food52-- a suggestion. Would it be possible to add an apple or orange Mark, pancake or this contest an allium in front of each CP in this list? Then as each one is requested to be tested, you could delete the Mark so it would be easier to see what is still available to test?
BoulderGalinTokyo April 22, 2012
Congrats to all picks, there are some really delicious recipes here.
Sagegreen April 20, 2012
What an amazing range of pancakes from this round-up! Congrats to all the cp candidates!
wssmom April 20, 2012
I will take Jianbing if available ...

It's all yours!
We'd like to test the Almond Meal with Blueberries or the Coconut Ginger with Rum Sauce!
gourmettenyc April 20, 2012
Both recipes have already been claimed. The Buckwheat Ricotta Blintzes with Figgy Relish are up for grabs, though!
Well that's funny because that is one I was also going to try. It's mine! Any savories not spoken for?
testkitchenette April 19, 2012
I'll take the Besan Puda, please!
Devangi R. April 20, 2012
Thanks for the CP and thanks to testkitchenette for testing the recipe. Loved all the recipes..I wanted to try so many of these, but I am busy. Congrats to everyone!

I'd love to try out the Maasa from Mali if on one has beat me to it yet! Yum....

FYI -- here's what I see as available: Besan Puda, Buckwheat Ricotta Blintzes with Figgy Relish, Maasa from Mali, Lentils Pancake, Jianbing.
The submissions to this contest were so amazing that I'll be making many, many of them, bit by bit; or should I say, bite by bite?
susan G. April 19, 2012
I can't wait to try the Mung Beans and Quinoa Crepe. If they come out half as beautiful as Panfusine's photos, I'll be thrilled!
susan G. April 19, 2012
Test -- yes, that's what I meant.
Panfusine April 20, 2012

Congrats to all the CPCs! I'd love to test the Saffranspannkaka, please. Thanks!
AntoniaJames April 19, 2012
I'll take Harry's, for my own Mr T, who will love them, I'm sure! (He has his own thing for Waffle Houses, by the way, being a boy from the South . . . but these are very similar to mine, and we have a ton of last year's blueberries to consume as this year's are coming in 2 months early, so the timing is perfect!) ;o)
AntoniaJames April 19, 2012
Ooops, are they already taken? If so, I'll take the Coconut And Ginger Dosas With Warm Rum Syrup. They look fantastic! ;o)
