Sunday Brunch: The Best Buttermilk Pancakes

Best Buttermilk Pancakes

One of the first recipes I made on this site was for buttermilk pancakes. The recipe was one I used frequently, probably for years, with only tiny variations as I never really looked at a written recipe when I went to make them. Those pancakes are slightly thicker a puffier, although still tender and not too heavy. This new recipe is why it sometimes pays ... Read More »

Meyer Lemon Scones

Meyer lemons, as I have mentioned before, are a type of lemon that is actually a hybrid between a tangerine or mandarin orange and a lemon. As a result, the fruit is slightly smaller than your average lemon and significantly sweeter, although it still has a very lemony flavor. Tasting a meyer lemon is more like tasting lemonade – albeit tart lemonade – than a ... Read More »

Apple Spice Vegan Wafffles

I know that I’ve mentioned before how I don’t like breakfast to be a fattening affair. Once in a while? Sure, but because I really enjoy breakfast foods and want to have them more than once in a blue moon, I like to work out ways to have my cake – waffles, in this case – and eat it, too. These waffles are based on ... Read More »

Nectarine Scones

Normally, I’m not a huge fan of fresh fruit in a scone. Dried fruits are easier to control and produce consistent, flavorful results. I feel like the fresh fruits release too much moisture and have a negative effect on the texture of the final product. This is especially true of berries, but the firmer the fruits get, the better the scone. Apples work fairly well ... Read More »

French Toast Waffles

Pancakes, french toast, waffles… sometimes it seems that breakfast options are so limited. This is, of course, a ridiculous notion that only exists because I tend to make the same basic recipes repeatedly. After all, it’s hard to go wrong with buttermilk pancakes. One way to spice up breakfast is by adding new spice combinations and fruits, but another way is to think a little ... Read More »

Plum Jam

When I heard that the theme of this month’s Sugar High Friday event, hosted by Delicious Days, was to make jam, jelly or some other type of preserves with fresh summer fruits, I was momentarily disappointed. I love jam, but I don’t love the huge amount of work that goes into making it, and I certainly had no intention of standing around and sterilizing jars ... Read More »

Red Pepper, Onion and Cheese Omelet

The trick to making an omelet is to practice. The more often you make them, the easier they’ll be to do. An omelet is sort of like a large egg pancake, if you’ve never had one before. The egg mixture has eggs (of course), a little milk or water and seasonings, then it is poured into a pan and cooked until just firm, before being ... Read More »

Yeasted Blueberry Pancakes

For some reason, yeasted pancakes don’t seem to be quite as popular as yeasted waffles. This might have to do with the fact that pancakes are not supposed to be quite as “light” as waffles and that you can usually lighten the batter by beating the egg whites separately, if you simply want to get a puffier pancake. I wanted a yeasted pancake recipe just ... Read More »
