These are the best of the best in old-fashioned pancakes. (Thank you, Halifax Liz for letting me know that your grandmother was making these in Northern Ireland 70 years ago.) It's no wonder a recipe like this has such staying power, they're super easy & make use of on-hand ingredients. The secret to their firm but fluffy texture is using tiny cubes of white bread to support the batter. But you'll never know they're in there! I've been making this recipe for about 10 years now & I like to serve these pancakes with jams, maple syrup & my homemade syrup from Recipe #22066. I also usually double the recipe if there is more than just the 3 of us eating.
The recipe was found in "Pancakes A to Z", one of the three books in my favorite cookbook series by Marie Simmons and there titled "Rux's Family's Favorite Pancakes". My family simply dubbed them "Special Pancakes" and even though it doesn't take a special day to make them, they make ANY day feel special.
This is a very quick and simple breakfast dish but looks very impressive. The apples, cranberries, cinnamon and maple syrup are wonderful together. Toasted pecans would also be good sprinkled over the apple slices with the cranberries. Serve with with warm maple syrup or fresh apple butter. Recipe from Arsenic and Old Lace Bed & Breakfast Inn.
I made this up tonight in search of something different from baked(boiled)potatoes. My oven was not working yet so I decided to pan fry them and they were a hit. ***Updated on 9/16 to add that potatoes should be browned and to add more oil as needed.
Great snack for everyone, or the for kids lunches or even as an after school treat! Serve for breakfast with yogurt and fruit or over ice cream for dessert. Watch your time in the oven because sometimes it cooks a little quickly. This recipe came from Bon Appetit, March of 2002.
A few baking tips I have learned from making this recipe often: I use a jelly roll pan so the granola will have maximum exposure while cooking. Also, if you do like your granola to clump, do not stir while baking. Allow to cool in pan for about 10 minutes or so, then run a spatula between granola and the pan to loosen. You will have so many clumps you will have to break them with your hands ; )
Admittedly, this isn't something you'd serve often, but if you or a loved one is a chocoholic, this would be a make a decadent breakfast. Perfect for a "valentines day" breakfast in bed! Found this in an issue of "Redbook" lying around at work.
Is your tummy ravenous for real food? These hearty waffles made with whole wheat flour, honey, oats, and chopped nuts (I used pecans) will give you energy for the day. I found this recipe in Taste of Home Parties, Potlucks, and Barbecues from Joan Scott of Dunbar, Wisconsin. She found it in a church cookbook years ago and even occasionally serves them for supper. Taste of Home recommends for a quick waffle topping, sprinkle with fresh berries (strawberries, raspberries, or blueberries). Then melt some jelly with a squirt of lemon juice in the microwave and drizzle over the waffles.
These pancakes are like the pancakes you'd get at a restaurant for breakfast because they're nice and fluffy with a slight sugary flavor. The egg whites give it an airy texture, and it really only takes a couple minutes more effort for a delightful pancake. I found this recipe in Family Circle February 2009. They suggest dropping 6 blueberries onto each round just before you flip it or sprinkle a little ground flaxseed for a nutrient boost.
This is an easy way to do scrambled eggs while you prepare the rest of your breakfast. Recipe can be halved very easily and baked in an 8" square baking dish for the same amount of time. Recipe from Allrecipes.
Copied from Mireille Guiliano's French Women Don't Get Fat. This book is a great way to change the way you look at food and get more enjoyment out of your meals. This recipe in particular is extremely flavorful, but still very healthy and simple. I hope you enjoy!
This is a recipe I developed years ago, a small amount of baking powder is what makes this recipe special! it's a family favorite and takes very little time to throw together, I sometimes just bake the complete recipe in a 10-inch round cake pan, but two smaller pans will do fine also, you will *love* this!:)
I was playing around in the kitchen today and came up with these pancakes. My family really loved them so I'm posting so I wont forget how I made them. We served them with sugar free syrup. My son and I had the left over's later plain for a snack and they were really good. If you happen to stumble across this recipe and decide to make, I hope you enjoy as much as we did!
