Fluffy Ricotta Pancakes

Fluffy Ricotta Pancakes

There are many things that you can do with a basic pancake recipe to make it a little bit more exciting. You can vary the syrup, using everything from maple syrup to agave to a thickened berry sauce. You can add fruit to the batter, or chocolate chips or even bacon. The options are almost endless, and one of my favorite things to add in ... Read More »

Halloween Pancake Molds

Halloween Pancake Molds

Vampire bats, jack o’ lanterns and haunted houses. These are just a few of the icons that you see pop up every Halloween, and they make up the set of Halloween Pancake Molds from Williams Sonoma. The cooking store usually releases a new set every year, with different designs, but these have a nice mix of shapes to them and it’s fun to see something ... Read More »

Breakfast inspiration from Jim’s Pancakes

More of Jim's Pancakes

I will admit that I thought that I had come up with some creative pancakes over the years. I particularly like my Red Velvet Pancakes and my Halloween-themed Vampire Pancakes, but I tend to keep my pancakes looking like, well, pancakes.

Whole Grain Banana Nut Pancakes

White Whole Wheat Banana Nut Pancakes

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 »
