How To Make Homer Simpson’s ‘Moon Waffles’ At Home [WATCH]

Do you remember that episode of The Simpsons where Homer makes his ‘Patented Space Age Out-Of-This-World Moon Waffles’?

In case you forgot, here’s a clip showing how he made this abomination of butter, waffle batter, caramel, and liquid smoke.

Mmmmmm…. butter.

If you’re not down with eating a whole stick of butter and an entire burnt smoky caramel waffle, though, YouTuber Andrew Rea has got you covered with a recipe that covers all four major elements of the P.S.A.O.O.T.W. Moon Waffles. He featured his version in a new episode for his popular show “Binging with Babish.”

To stay true to the show, Rea did start off with Homer’s OG recipe and ended up with some disastrous results.

….Yeah, that burnt caramel is NOT gonna come out any time soon.

Apparently, Rea had to go get a new waffle iron just to make his better and more flavorful version, but from the looks of it, it was totally worth it.

Sure, Rea’s tastier and more visually appealing waffles don’t look exactly like Homer’s version, but they’ve got the desired flavors and won’t wreck your kitchen or arteries. So if you’re looking to recreate this fictional food, look to this recipe for guidance.

You Can Now Eat The Most Iconic Food In The Simpson’s Universe In One Place

The zany town of Springfield is the host of a colorful (mostly yellow) population of characters that have had all of us quoting them in our conversations for the better part of almost three decades.  But our favorite characters aren’t the only icons to come out of The Simpson’s universe.  Our desire to be part of their wild world was not only fueled by the daily hilarious antics, but also through the one-of-a-kind food that intrigued our Homer-sized appetites.

At Universal Studios in Hollywood, CA you can stop by Springfield for a bite to eat at one of the many recognizable establishments that have made the town special.

A ‘clogger’ of a burger is no longer a part of your cartoon dreams.  This real Krusty Burger location serves the burger you only thought was animated… but trust me when I say this patty is ‘eeexxxxxcellent’ (Mr. Burns voice).

Or you can hit up Moe’s Tavern. There you can join your fellow degenerates for a glass of the legendary Flaming Moe and specifically grab a Duff beer with everyone’s favorite inebriated friend, Barney.

For dessert you can pop inside the Kwik-E-Mart or Lard Lad’s Donuts to grab Homey’s favorite donut.  Large enough to share, but good enough where you’ll want to devour it yourself, finishing this bad boy in one sitting is a feat in itself.

Springfield inside Universal Studios Hollywood is a land of both comic mischief and culinary wonder.  Experiencing this place and taking a tour of the exclusive cuisine is worth the visit all on its own.  And as you leave, you might even catch yourself saying “Thank you come again!”

And you will.

This Is The Pizza Homer Simpson Prefers The Most

Home-Simpson-Pizza-Cover

Which do you prefer: New York or Chicago-style pizza? The question has presented itself to many food enthusiasts over the years. Now, an iconic figure has decided to weigh in on the age-old pie question.

The Simpsons‘ very own Homer Simpson recently picked a side when it comes to the best pizza around. After years on the air, the long-running show finally did a live episode with different variations for both the East and West Coast.

Viewers were able to ask the animated character live questions and get responses in real time. One question, asked by East Coast fan George Quiroga, was whether Homer preferred Chicago or New York-style pizza.

His response, in typical Homer Simpson fashion, was:

” I prefer Chicago deep dish because I like Italian better than Chinese.”

Homer’s voice actor, Dan Castellaneta, hails from Illinois which is probably why Homer leans more towards the Windy City rather than the Big Apple.

We were always curious how the show would tackle a live episode. Now we know. Check out the clip from the “Simprovised” episode. The question starts at the 1:22 mark.

How To Make A Homer Simpson Donut Cake…MMMMMM Donut Cake

Donut-Cake-Cover

Everyone knows Homer Simpson’s favorite go-to snack. That round, pink-frosted breakfast pastry has become a cultural icon in the quarter century The Simpsons has been on the air. While there are quite a few places you can get your hands on something similar, this one takes the cake.

Recipe blog Why Don’t You Make Me has shared a way to recreate the famous Pink Sprinkle Donut as a giant cake.

DonutCake01

Essentially you bake two cakes in separate pans. Once they’re done, you stack them and carefully trim until it presents a rounded shape. Take a piece of fondant and dye it tan. Carefully mold the fondant around your cake until it slowly resembles a donut.

Take another batch of fondant and dye it pink. Spread it over you cake as if it were actual pink frosting.

DonutCake02

Finally, using muli-colored pieces of fondant, roll them into strips and cut them to resemble sprinkles. Carefully place them on top of your donut cake.

This Homer Simpson Statue Is Completely Covered in Junk Food

big homey

It is pretty appropriate that an homage to the portly Homer Simpson be covered entirely with the sugary goodies that made him the man he is.

Mandatory.com has a show called “Fast Food Formations,” where they mess around and just create cool stuff using food. For this Homer statue, they used 29 mini white powdered donuts, 128 yellow gummy bears and 26 lemon gummies to make his arms and yellow melted saltwater taffy for his face. His shirt was made up of giant marshmallows, vanilla meringues and mini powdered donuts. The outline of his shirt and hair were made with licorice, and they surrounded him with an ocean of blue gummy bears, blue cotton candy and his favorite pink sprinkled donuts. Oh, yeah. His beloved Duff beer was made with 77 cola gummies.

Mmm… Sacrilicious.

Colorful Simpsons Wine Bottles Look Just Like Homer and Marge

A fancy bottle of wine might be the last thing you’d break out for a Simpsons binge-watching session. But then, you’ve probably never found a wine that looks quite like this.

Russian designers Constantin Bolimond and Dmitry Patsukevich dreamt up a pair of wine bottles meant to resemble the iconic husband and wife duo from television’s longest running animated sitcom: Homer and Marge Simpson. Inspired by the color block paintings of Piet Mondrian, the bottles are clean and minimalistic, with sections clearly demarcated to match their characters’ appearances. As a little tongue-in-cheek nod, the wines are also said to be aged since 1987, or the year the family first debuted in shorts on The Tracey Ullman Show.

As neat as the designs are, the wines are of course just a concept. Which is probably for the better. We’d rather take a can of Duff, anyway.
