Whole Grain Banana Nut Pancakes

White Whole Wheat Banana Nut Pancakes

One overripe banana sitting on the countertop really isn’t enough to bake a whole loaf of banana bread. It is, however, enough to make a batch of banana pancakes with and that is exactly what I decided to do with my last overly-speckled banana this weekend. A mashed banana adds flavor, moisture and heartiness to a batch of pancakes. To complement it, I decided to ... Read More »

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 »

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 »

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 »

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 »

Gingerbread Pancakes with Candied Ginger

Gingerbread Pancakes with Candied Ginger

It has been a long time since I made a batch of gingerbread pancakes, and an even longer time since I posted about them! I am always tweaking pancake recipes and, while the first batch from a few years ago is still good, a couple of changes make them even better.  Gingerbread really needs to have some molasses to give it a good gingerbread flavor, ...

ChefStack Pancake Machine

ChefStack Pancake Machine

The ChefStack Pancake Machine isn’t designed for home cooks, but it’s such an interesting gadget I can’t resist mentioning it. The clever machine makes pancakes without any human intervention and can turn out up to 200 pancakes an hour. Since it takes a few minutes to cook a homemade pancake after whipping up the batter, you’d need a very large and very hot griddle to ... Read More »

Macadamia Nut Pancakes with Bananas

Pouring maple syrup

I got an interesting tip from a guy at my local Trader Joe’s this week about adding nuts to pancakes. He suggested that I grate the nuts using a microplane or other very fine grater instead of chopping them up. This technique has plusses and minuses. The plus is that you really disperse the nut flavor throughout the pancake, so you can taste it in ... Read More »
