What is better on a rainy Sunday morning than homemade pancakes?
I woke up this morning wanting to cook a lovely breakfast. While sipping on coffee, I flipped through a few cookbooks for inspiration. I found dozens of delicious sounding egg dishes and complicated pastry recipes and was practically drooling after five minutes. Unfortunately, we lacked at least two key ingredients from every recipe, but I was not about to run to the corner store in the pouring rain to get heavy cream, ricotta cheese, or swiss chard!
The recipe is just about as simple as using a boxed pancake mix, but the results are ten times better. I think it has something to do with the melted butter added right into the batter.
Light, fluffy, golden brown, delicious!
My favorite topping for pancakes is a simple fruit “compote” without any added sugar. All you do is heat a cup of frozen fruit (I used a blueberry/raspberry/blackberry mix) over very low heat until the fruit is defrosted and resembles a watery jam.
I will definitely be making these again very soon!
What’s your favorite lazy Sunday breakfast?
