Baked Blueberry Pancake with Cherry Syrup #SundaySupper

I’m so into coffee lately. I crave it frequently and love to try different places to see which I like the best.

There is a place next to the salon where I get my hair done that I had been dying to try.  When I went for my appointment a few weeks I knew after I was going to stop for a coffee.  That was my plan.

Mom headed there for lunch while I was being all highlighted and brightened.  She loved the breakfast sandwich and iced latte with almond milk she had while sitting outside.

When I went after, I debated what to get.  A nice latte sounded kind of good, but I went with nitro cold brew, which I’ve had at a few different places.  It’s great because it’s so smooth and has no guilt since there are no add ins.

After only the first taste, I noted it was strong, but a lot of coffee is, and it grew on me as I drank it.  We stopped at a grocery store and then spent over an hour on the roads trying to navigate rush hour and get home.

During that time, I started to feel weird.  I became very emotional, crying about a variety of things that should not have warranted crying after I had felt so good leaving the salon, and I wanted out of that car in the worst way.

I could tell I was all hopped up on caffeine as I made and ate dinner, but that’s not entirely uncommon when I drink coffee.

The headache, stomachache, and blurred vision that followed are completely and totally uncommon.  This also freaked me out, which did not help the situation as I whimpered like a puppy on the couch.

I doubted sleep would come, but it had been over six hours since I had the coffee and I’ve read caffeine is supposed to be out of your system by then.  And I did fall asleep for a little over an hour, before I woke up for the next six hours, during which time I tossed and turned until I gave up and watched Orange is the New Black.

I fell back asleep after some deep breathing around 7 am until it was time to get up at 8.  But even then, my heart still raced and I felt like I could run a marathon without even being out of breath.

I called the coffee shop because this seemed more akin to oding than drinking an innocent cup of coffee.  The very nice people at the shop informed me that one of their cold brews is equal to five or six shots of espresso.  FIVE OR SIX SHOTS!

A drink like that should come with a warning.  I mean, when’s the last time anyone walked into a shop and was all “I’ll have a sextuple shot latte???”  Never, is the answer you’re looking for.

So I’m off cold brew for now, maybe forever, and I am always going to ask for approximate caffeine levels because that never, ever needs to happen again.

What I should have done that sleepless night was bake something like this Baked Blueberry Pancake with Cherry Syrup.  This is the perfect make ahead summer breakfast to feed a crowd.  It tastes so much like a blueberry pancake without all the flipping and standing over the stove and it has a crumb topping, so take that classic blueberry pancakes!

No pancakes are complete without syrup, so I amped up some classic maple syrup with fresh Bing and rainier cherries and vanilla.  Together this is a match made in heaven that can be served warm or room temperature.

Baked Blueberry Pancake with Cherry Syrup #SundaySupper

Prep Time: 20 minutes

Cook Time: 35 minutes

Total Time: 55 minutes

Yield: 12 servings

Ingredients

Pancake Bake
2 ½ cups all-purpose flour
2 tablespoons granulated sugar
½ teaspoon kosher salt
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon baking powder
2 large eggs
2 ½ cups milk (I used almond coconut milk, use what you love)
1 tablespoon vanilla bean paste
¼ cup olive oil
1 tablespoon lemon juice
2 heaping cups blueberries
Topping
½ cup all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
3 tablespoons granulated sugar
3 tablespoons packed light brown sugar
3 tablespoons olive oil
Syrup
½ cup pure maple syrup
2 cups cherries (I used a mixture of Bing and rainier)
2 teaspoons vanilla bean paste

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Oil a 9 by 13 inch baking pan.
  2. In a large bowl, stir together flour, sugar, salt, baking soda, and baking powder. Add the eggs, milk, vanilla, oil, and lemon juice. Stir until just combined, a few lumps are okay. Add the blueberries and stir to combine. Pour in the prepared pan.
  3. Make the topping. In a small bowl, stir together the flour, cinnamon, and sugars. Add the oil and stir until clumps form. Sprinkle evenly over the batter. Bake for about 30 minutes, until golden brown on top and a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean or with a few moist crumbs. Serve warm or cool completely in pan.
  4. Make the syrup. In a small saucepan, heat the syrup and cherries over medium heat. Bring to a boil and allow to boil, stirring constantly, for 5 minutes, until slightly thickened. Stir in the vanilla.
  5. Pancake may be stored in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 3 days or frozen in pieces wrapped in parchment and foil and placed in a zipper bag for up to 3 months. Thaw in the microwave about 1 minute. Syrup may be stored in the refrigerator for up to 1 week and reheated in the microwave for about 1 minute.

Peeps Pancake Smores

Peeps Pancake Smores

The thermostat is a hot topic in our house … literally.

Since I can remember I have been hot.  Temperature hot.

In school while most of the girls would walk around with long sleeved shirts and sweaters and beg to wear pants under their uniform skirt, I happily perused the hallways in my short-sleeved shirt and often wished they’d turn the heat down.

Peeps Pancake Smores

Things haven’t changed much.  I hate the forced heat of winter and love the air conditioning.  On these cool spring days there’s nothing better than having the windows open and having it just a little too cool in the house.  I sleep with the ceiling fan and a table fan blowing on me.

So what is the ideal temperature for me?  You ask.

Peeps Pancake Smores

Well, I never turn the heat higher than 68 during the day and at night it dips to 59.  I like the air also on 68 or 69.  And right now, having the windows open and the thermostat reading about 65 is sheer perfection.

In short, if you come to visit me, pack a jacket.  People who have spent time in this house can attest to that.

It is a mystery why I am always hot, except when I go outside in the winter, then I am cold and feel I will never be warm again.  But life is full of mysteries and this one isn’t so bad … unless you’re Mom or Dad.

Peeps Pancake Smores

Luckily, I keep everyone happy with tasty treats like Peeps Pancake Smores.  Easter to me means having Peeps around.  And creating a super simple masterpiece like these Smores is kind of the best thing ever.

Whether you use homemade or store bought pancakes, this is totally irresistible with a smooth chocolate (or carob – you know the drill) spread and a towering jiggly stack of Peeps.  Easter just got a whole lot sweeter.

Peeps Pancake Smores

Prep Time: 5 minutes

Cook Time: 2 minutes

Total Time: 7 minutes

Yield: 1-2 servings

Ingredients

2 pancakes, homemade or store bought
3 tablespoons dark chocolate or carob chips
2 teaspoons vegetable shortening
4 Peeps bunnies

Instructions

  1. Get your pancakes ready to go. Not gonna lie – I used Eggos and they worked great!
  2. Place the chocolate or carob chips in a bowl with the shortening. Melt in the microwave in 30 second increments, stirring in between, until fully melted. Divide the mixture among the two pancakes and spread into an even layer.
  3. Place 2 Peeps on each pancake and microwave about 30 seconds until the Peeps are super puffy and melty. Bunnies work best here because they are flat. Smash the pancakes together and serve immediately.

Waffle and Pancake Avocado Toast

Waffle and Pancake Avocado Toast

Since I was a little kid eating scrambled eggs with cheese for dinner, I have loved traditional breakfast foods at not so traditional times.

Really, is there anything better than taking say Eggo Homestyle Waffles and Buttermilk Pancakes and making avocado toast?  I didn’t think so.

Getting ready to make avocado toast

Eggo Pancakes and Waffles now have a new formulation that is free from artificials with colors and flavors coming from natural sources, which I love because real food is awesome.  And the last week of February check out the Target Circular when Eggo products will be $1.99!  As if we needed another reason to shop at Target 🙂

Avocado Toast Toppings

Adding the toppings

Once you stock up on Eggo products, feel free to let your creativity shine through, making different, fun things for breakfast, lunch, snack time, and even dinner.

You’ll definitely want to start with my Waffle and Pancake Avocado Toast.  As if avocado toast couldn’t get any better, I went and put it on Eggo Waffles and Pancakes.  While this is an awesome snack, it can also make a fun dinner that is ready in a flash.

Waffle and Pancake Avocado Toast

I topped my Waffles and Pancakes with avocado (of course), radish, strawberries, Brussels sprouts, dried cherries, and pecans.  I loved this combination because it’s sweet and savory with lots of texture.  But the point of this dish is to use up all those leftover fruits and vegetables hanging out in the refrigerator and some of the nuts and dried fruit lingering in the pantry.

shopping at Target

Play around with flavor and texture pairings until you find the perfect Eggo avocado toast for you.  The best thing about this dish is that it can totally suit your tastes.  Oh, and that it takes practically no time to prepare and takes Eggo Waffles and Pancakes to the next level.  Plus, this is fancy enough to serve for a party.  Talk about a conversation starter!

Be sure to pick up some Eggo products and have some fun in the kitchen!

The BEST Gluten Free Blueberry Pancakes

 

The BEST Gluten Free Blueberry Pancakes

Update October 5, 2016:  I made these pancakes and paired them with peach maple syrup to update the post with better photos.  They are great with plain maple syrup as well, but to make the peach syrup, saute three peaches in a pot with 1 tablespoon coconut oil over medium heat for about 5 minutes.  Add 2/3 cup maple syrup and heat until warm.  I hope you enjoy these pancakes as much as I do!

I’ve been keeping a secret from you. I mean other than the fact that I’m clearly seasonally challenged. I mean, first Peach and Plum Pie and now Blueberry Pancakes. You’d think it’s July, not – gasp – October! But my real secret is that I do a lot of gluten free baking.

The BEST Gluten Free Blueberry Pancakes

The BEST Gluten Free Blueberry Pancakes

In fact, many of the recipes you see here are gluten free. I just don’t tell you. Let me be clear, I do not have Celiac Disease and I am not gluten free one hundred percent of the time. I simply find a gluten free diet most of the time makes my body happiest. In addition, so many people are looking for amazing gluten free recipes these days, and I would like to help them out.

When I do gluten free baking, I always use Bob’s Red Mill Gluten Free 1 to 1 Baking Flour. I’ve tried other brands and the flavor and texture just don’t suit my palate. It even smells like all-purpose flour. When I use it, no one ever knows the difference. Ever!

Sometimes I even like the gluten free version of baked goods better than that made with traditional flour. Like in Blackberry Pie Bars and Blueberry Buckle. It even works in pie crust.  I bake a lot for some friends that are gluten free and they have remarked that the treats are some of the best they have ever had!

The BEST Gluten Free Blueberry Pancakes

 

I’m not being paid to say this. I wish I was. Hey, Bob’s Red Mill, are you listenin??? I just love this flour in the things I make – like these Blueberry Pancakes. I’ve eaten more than my fair share of pancakes and these are definitely the best blueberry pancakes I’ve had. They’re probably the best pancakes I’ve ever had . . . and they’re gluten free!

What makes these pancakes so amazing is how thick and fluffy they cook up. Because they are so thick, you’ll need some patience to cook them low and slow, so they cook all the way through without burning, but it’s sooooo worth it.

The BEST Gluten Free Blueberry Pancakes

The heavenly cake-like texture helps them truly live up to their name – they are cakes cooked in a skillet. The burst of blueberries really makes them sing. Because blueberries are going out of season (nooooooooo!), feel free to use ones that have been frozen, thawed, and drained well. Now all you need is some pure maple syrup!

The Best Gluten Free Blueberry Pancakes

 

The BEST Gluten Free Blueberry Pancakes

Prep Time: 15 minutes

Cook Time: 20 minutes

Total Time: 35 minutes

Yield: 4 servings

Ingredients

1 ½ cups Bob's Red Mill Gluten Free 1 to 1 Baking Flour

3 tablespoons granulated sugar

1 teaspoon baking powder

½ teaspoon baking soda

½ teaspoon kosher salt

2 large eggs

2 tablespoons vegetable oil, plus additional for cooking

1 1/3 cups unsweetened almond or coconut milk

1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

2 cups blueberries, preferably fresh, but frozen, thawed, and drained will work

Instructions

Preheat oven to 200 degrees F.

In a medium bowl, stir together flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. In a separate medium bowl, whisk together eggs, oil, milk, and vanilla. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and stir just until a batter is formed. A few lumps is okay. Fold in the blueberries.

Heat a large skillet over medium to medium-low heat. I used my stainless steel skillet (which I use for everything), but a non-stick or cast iron skillet is recommended. Add a little vegetable oil and scoop about ¼ cup portions of the batter into the skillet. Cook until a couple bubbles appear around the edges, about 1 ½ to 2 minutes. Flip the pancakes over and cook for about an additional 1 ½ minutes, until the pancakes are golden brown on both sides. You may need to flip a couple additional times. Use your judgment based on how they’re cooking. Insert a toothpick in the center of each pancake to check for doneness. The toothpick should come out clean or with just a few crumbs.

Store pancakes on aluminum foil in the oven while you repeat the process with the rest of the batter. Pancakes are best served immediately, but may be frozen, individually wrapped in parchment and foil and placed in zipper bags for up to 3 months. Thaw in the microwave for 30 seconds or in the toaster. Serve with warm maple syrup

Peppermint Bark Pancakes

Peppermint Bark Pancakes

Christmas morning may be my favorite few hours of the whole year. The calendar may have it as just another day, but all of my feelings tell me it’s not.

I don’t bound out of bed super early, but once I’m up, I take the holiday spirit seriously. I light the Christmas tree immediately. Then I light the other trees. One is never enough! Next are the other decorations that light up, some even move. Penguins and snowmen and a blow up snow globe.

Peppermint Bark Pancakes

Peppermint Bark Pancakes

The TV has to go on. There’s only one thing to watch: Elf. I never get tired of that movie, especially on Christmas morning. Before I can tear into my presents, I have to make breakfast, because mornings just can’t be extra special without an extraordinary breakfast to eat while my parents and I open gifts.

Peppermint Bark Pancakes

Shopping at Walmart

But one thing I don’t want to do Christmas morning is spend a bunch of time in the kitchen. Luckily, I picked up Aunt Jemima Original Complete Mix and Original Syrup at Walmart. They allow me to make a warm, comforting breakfast with just a few ingredients that I am happy to share with my family to make my day even better. It’s so nice to have a homemade meal that takes little time and effort to prepare.

Peppermint Bark Pancakes

While the Mix and Syrup are great as is, with a few additions, they are even better. I took one of everyone’s favorite holiday treats, peppermint bark, and turned it into pancakes. With peppermint and white chocolate in the pancakes and cocoa or carob powder in the syrup, these are a fun breakfast treat that really packs the flavor of peppermint bark as well as the season.

Be sure to make the holiday season even more special with Aunt Jemima and my Peppermint Bark Pancakes!

Peppermint Bark Pancakes

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Cook Time: 10 minutes

Total Time: 20 minutes

Yield: Approximately 12 Pancakes

Ingredients

2 cups Aunt Jemima Original Complete Mix

1 ½ cups water

¼ cup finely chopped candy cane or peppermint candies

¼ cup white chocolate chips

1 ½ cups Aunt Jemima Original Syrup

¼ cup cocoa or carob powder

Oil, for cooking

Instructions

Preheat oven to 200 degrees F.

In a large bowl, stir together Aunt Jemima Original Complete Mix and water until just a few lumps remain. Stir in the peppermint candies and white chocolate chips.

In a medium bowl, combine Aunt Jemima Syrup and cocoa or carob powder. Stir to combine. Allow to rest while the pancakes cook. Stir again before use.

Heat a large skillet over medium heat until hot. Add enough oil to coat the bottom of the skillet. Scoop roughly ¼ cup of batter into the skillet for each pancake. Do not overcrowd the pan.

Allow to cook about 1-2 minutes, or until bubbles form on the surface of the pancakes. Carefully flip the pancakes over and cook about 1-2 minutes more. If you want to be sure they are done, test them with a toothpick, just like a cake. The toothpick should come out clean or with a few moist crumbs.

Serve immediately or place on aluminum foil and keep warm in the oven while you make the rest of the pancakes. Top with syrup for serving.

Gingerbread Pancakes

Gingerbread Pancakes

Right now, I bet you are in the mad rush of planning your Thanksgiving meal. Perhaps you’re coordinating travel plans. Or making the first of probably many trips to the grocery store over the next few days. Oh, and then there’s setting the table. Cooking the meal. Making the Black Friday game plan. And trying to have fun amidst all the stress.

I’m not into traditional Thanksgiving foods. No turkey, stuffing, or canned green bean casserole for me. My family has had everything from ham to tacos to pan seared filet mignon. This year’s menu is still in the planning stages, but it will include a fabulous dessert in addition to some other non-traditional food. I may made some of my easy from scratch Cranberry Sauce and throw in some Brussels sprouts just so we’re not totally straying from the holiday.

Gingerbread Pancakes

Thanksgiving breakfast gets overlooked, I think. A day full of decadent food deserves an equally decadent breakfast. It kicks an early morning off right so you have energy to cook away all day long.

Maybe your ideal breakfast is eggs and bacon. Perhaps it’s doughnuts or bagels from your favorite local spot. Or even breakfast from one of the open fast food restaurants. For me, it’s pancakes. Something sweet and so good it makes me want to dance in the middle of the kitchen.

Gingerbread Pancakes

These Gingerbread Pancakes? They’ll definitely make you bust a move. Mix together the dry ingredients the night before. In the morning they just need to be mixed with a couple other things before being cooked up and served with some warm maple syrup.

The warm, soothing flavor of these pancakes is perfect for the holiday season and chilly weather. The fluffy texture is the only thing better than the flavor. It’s like eating real cake. No flat pancakes here! I don’t know about you, but I think the fluffiest pancakes are the best.

Gingerbread Pancakes

Everyone will run to the table for these pancakes. Better make a double batch! And then, if the turkey doesn’t turn out quite right, no one will remember. They’ll still be talking about these pancakes!  Oh, and they’d make a great Christmas breakfast too!

Gingerbread Pancakes

Gingerbread Pancakes

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Cook Time: 20 minutes

Total Time: 30 minutes

Yield: 4-6 servings

Ingredients

3 cups all-purpose flour

1 tablespoon baking powder

¾ teaspoon baking soda

½ teaspoon kosher salt

2 teaspoons ground ginger

2 teaspoons ground cinnamon

½ teaspoon ground cloves

1/3 cup packed light brown sugar

2 tablespoons vegetable oil, plus more for cooking

3 large eggs, beaten

3 cups milk (I used almond milk – use what you love)

Instructions

Preheat oven to 200 degrees F. Place a piece of foil in the oven.

In a large bowl, stir together flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, ginger, cinnamon, cloves, and brown sugar until well combined. Add the eggs, oil, and milk and stir until just incorporated. A few lumps are okay.

Preheat a large skillet over medium heat. I use a stainless steel skillet but non-stick will work. Add enough oil to lightly coat the bottom of the pan. Place dollops of about ¼ cup of batter in the skillet. Cook for about 1 minute and 30 seconds or until you start to see bubbles forming. Flip the pancakes and cook an additional minute. Continue flipping every 30 seconds until the pancakes are golden brown and fully cooked. You may check them with a toothpick, which should come out clean or with a few moist crumbs.

Place pancakes on the foil in the oven until all of them have been cooked. Serve immediately with maple syrup.

Cinnamon Vanilla Pancakes #SundaySupper

Cinnamon Vanilla Pancakes #SundaySupper

I’m so excited to be participating in my first Sunday Supper this week.  I’ve seen so many awesome Sunday Supper posts from some of my favorite bloggers and have been dying to be a part of the fun.  And now I am!  Yay!

As though that wasn’t enough, this week’s theme is movie inspired recipes.  Movies!  I love movies, watching two new ones every week, with hopefully a handful of old favorites too.  Movies make me laugh and cry and cheer on my favorite characters.  They transport me to another world and inspire me to write.

Cinnamon Vanilla Pancakes #SundaySupper

Cinnamon Vanilla Pancakes #SundaySupper

With as much as I love movies, you’d think thinking of one to make a recipe would have been super simple.  Yeah . . . not so much.  I racked my brain, and Mom’s, and Dad’s and I couldn’t think of anything.  I came up with a few movies but didn’t like them enough to get inspired or didn’t like the food.  Mom did come up with ET and Reese’s Pieces, but I’ve never seen ET.  Can you believe that?  And to think I still call myself a movie junkie!

I don’t remember if Mom or I came up with it, but the moment No Reservations came to mind, I couldn’t get it off.  Starring Catherine Zeta Jones Aaron Eckhart, and Abigail Breslin, it’s about a girl who lives with her aunt after her mom is killed in a car accident.  Okay, so it starts off pretty depressing and almost always upsets me, but then it turns around.  Catherine Zeta Jones’ character is a chef who falls in love with another chef and everyone kind of settles into their new lives.  Since two of the main characters are chefs, much of the action takes place in a restaurant and there’s plenty of food.

Cinnamon Vanilla Pancakes #SundaySupper

Cinnamon Vanilla Pancakes #SundaySupper

All kinds of food are part of the movie, from spaghetti to pizza to truffles.  But pancakes play a part too.  They come to play in the end, but I don’t want to ruin it in case you want to watch No Reservations after reading this post.  And you should watch it because it’s a really great movie.

These Cinnamon Vanilla Pancakes are currently one of my favorite dinners.  That’s right, I love them for an easy dinner that is sweet and satisfying.  A tall stack of these with some pure maple syrup (no fake stuff), a little fruit preserves, and some fresh fruit, and I am a super happy camper, more than ready to watch another movie.

As I stated before, movies have inspired me to write.  I have big dreams of being a novelist and screenwriter but am having trouble getting my career off the ground.  So in an effort to change that, I made a video trying to grab the attention of Ellen DeGeneres.  I rewrote Call Me Maybe telling my story.  I might not be the best singer but I hope my passion and dreams shine through.  I would love if you’d take a look 🙂

Cinnamon Vanilla Pancakes #SundaySupper
Prep time: 
Cook time: 
Total time: 
Serves: 3-4
 
Ingredients
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • ¼ teaspoon kosher salt (optional)
  • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 1 cup milk (I use either almond or coconut milk)
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1 large egg
  • 2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
  • Maple syrup, for serving
  • Fruit preserves, for serving
  • Fresh fruit, for serving
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 200 degrees F. Prepare a piece of aluminum foil to place cooked pancakes on, so they can stay warm in the oven while the others are cooking. Sometimes I like them even better after a little time in the oven.
  2. In a small bowl, stir together flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, and cinnamon. In a large bowl, whisk together milk, oil, egg, and vanilla until fully combined. Add the flour mixture and whisk until combined with very few lumps. It is vitally important to whisk or the batter will be too lumpy.
  3. Heat a large skillet over medium heat. I use stainless steel, but non-stick or cast iron would also work. When hot, add some vegetable oil and carefully swirl it around to coat the entire pan.
  4. Spoon 3 heaping tablespoons of batter for each pancake (or more or less depending on the size you want). Do not crowd the pancakes. Cook for 1-2 minutes, until bubble are on the surface of the pancake and starting to burst. Flip the pancakes over and cook for about 1-2 minutes more until light golden brown on both sides. Transfer to foil and place in oven, while cooking the remainder of the batter. Serve as soon as possible with syrup, preserves, and fruit.
