Blueberry Ebelskiver

Ebelskiver in pan

I never need an excuse to break out my ebelskiver pan and cook up some of those delightful spherical pancakes on a weekend morning. You do need a special pan to make them, but ebelskivers are just as easy to make as regular pancakes and might taste just a little bit better due to their shape and size. In fact, the recipe is very much ... Read More »

Churros con Chocolate

Churros frying

In Madrid, there is one dessert place that is a must-visit destination. That is Chocolateria San Gines. This chocolate shop has one specialty and that is Churros con Chocolate. The chocolate is thick, rich and pudding-like, and the churros are light and crisp. The combination is pretty much the only thing on the menu and the waiters tend to assume that this is what you ...

Passion Fruit Coconut Pancakes

Passionfruit Coconut Pancakes

When I took a quick trip out to Kauai recently, thanks to a great deal on airfare, I got to try a lot of great foods. Most of them, I didn’t bring home. Somehow tropical hot dogs and cinnamon kunckles seem best when they’re eaten right away. I did bring home a few things from Aunty Lilikoi, however. She isn’t a relative. “She” is a ... Read More »

Toasted Almond Waffles

Toasted Almond Waffles

I like my waffles to be nice and fluffy, with a crisp exterior and a moist interior. I think that this texture is the best for holding up to melted butter and maple syrup. That said, there are times when a heartier waffle is a good choice, as it is on a chilly spring morning when you want something satisfying to start your day. Or ... Read More »

Browned Butter Dutch Baby Pancake

Browned Butter Dutch Baby as served

A Dutch baby pancake is a big, puffy, custardy pancake that is baked in a skillet in the oven. If it came down to it, I would say that it’s a little bit like a cross between a pancake and a popover, only better. The babies are easy to make, but take a little longer than regular pancakes to cook, so I tend to save ... Read More »

Fresh Blueberry Waffles

Fresh Blueberry Waffles

A big container of fresh blueberries sitting on the counter is just asking to be used in a recipe. I like blueberries in all kinds of desserts and baked goods, but I have to admit that breakfast foods usually spring to mind when I think about using them. Blueberry muffins, coffee cakes and pancakes are all classics in my book – so for a little ... Read More »

Red Velvet Pancakes

Red Velvet Pancakes, innards

I think that holidays like Valentine’s Day always deserve a special breakfast. Why not start off the day on a good note? Of course, I could say the same thing about just about every morning, because I tend to think that every day should start out on just as good a note as the holidays. These pancakes are perfect for surprising your loved one – ... Read More »

Panettone French Toast

Panettone French Toast

Panettone is a popular cake around Christmas time, but what to do with a leftover loaf when the holidays are over? The easiest answer is slice it up and make french toast. You can do this with the big loaves and the miniature loaves, and it might be worth making a trip to the store to get a post-holiday panettone just to serve it up ... Read More »
