Blueberry Pecan Coffee Cake

I read quite a few food magazines every month. Given that I also have a fair number of cookbooks, recipes from other blogs and recipes that I either make up or have ideas for, I have accumulated quite a backlog of recipes and a magazine recipe has to be pretty appealing for me to bump it up in the queue. I picked up a copy ... Read More »

Cinnamon Streusel Coffee Cake

This is almost a repost of something I did over at Slashfood this week, but the cake is very good and I wanted to share it here, too. This Cinnamon Struesel Coffee Cake is a Martha Stewart Living recipe that I adapted by changing the spicing slightly. It was originally meant to be a cardamom streusel cake, but I was not going to toast and ... Read More »

Aebleskiver

Aebleskiver are a Danish delicacy, a type of small, round pancake or waffle, with somewhat crisp exteriors and very moist interiors. They usually have small slices of apple inside them, but they can also be filled with jam or left plain. The are best eaten with powdered sugar, in my opinion, but syrup and jam are popular, and they can be rolled in butter and ... Read More »

These pancakes are easy and spiced up just enough to be perfect for a winter morning. The gingerbread spice combination ... Read More »

Sourdough English Muffins

Bette’s Oceanview Diner is one of my favorite places in Berkeley, California. They have a cute, bustling diner feel – rare to find on this coast – and fantastic food. Their basic pancakes and scones are really excellent and their specials are equally delicious. It’s hard to pick a favorite, but the enormous Dutch Bunny - a 12 inch puffed apple pancake – is definitely ... Read More »

Raised Orange Waffles

I was looking around various websites for waffle recipes when the idea of an orange flavor struck me (Gee, I don’t know why). This recipe on Mr Breakfast immediately appealed to me, since I love yeasted waffles. They are usually able to achieve a lightness that eludes waffles made with chemical leaveners alone, though I do like those as well. I had already decided on ... Read More »
