Saturday Morning Brunch

On Saturday or Sunday morning is about the only time I really like eating breakfast, because I can eat it later. Always taste better to me at later time, with that great cup of French Press Coffee. I love Dutch Baby Pancakes drizzled with lemon juice, honey, and sprinkled with a little powered sugar. This morning I made Dutch Apple Pancakes, using the same simple recipe as Dutch Baby Pancakes; just cooked a delicious golden apple in a tablespoon of sugar, cinnamon, and a little butter. I cook the apples in a skillet to make them syrupy but still firm and crunchy, place them on top of the batter and bake. I save the syrup to drizzle a spoon of it over my piece of the pancake. YUM! Williams Sonoma has a recipe that is the same, except they add butter and sugar to the batter. I do not, makes it to greasy and too sweet for me. I add butter to the baking pan and pour the batter on top. The butter cooks in, and keeps the batter from sticking. (I still recommend using a nonstick pan).

These are great to make when you have company. They are easy to make, and serve with a variety of fruits and small pitchers of flavored syrups.
My simple recipe:
2 eggs
1/2 cup milk
1/2 cup flour
teas. vanilla
pinch of salt
half stick butter, melt in pan and pour in batter.
Bake in a preheated 400 degree oven. Serve immediately.

The Dutch Baby Pancakes sound so much like the Welsh Pancakes *which us Americans call Crepes, winks* that my Welsh Mum always made for me... SO Yummy! This recipe you have shared sounds delish... must try it!

Oneika, I promise, you could make these, very simple and quick. Thanks so much for stopping by. You have a wonderful, fun, adventurous blog! xOx

Dawn, very similar to crepes, except, more batter and they cook up thicker. I love crepes!!! They cook up so big and fluffy, but deflate immediately when you pull them from the oven. :) I do recommend you use a good nonstick pan. Otherwise, a nightmare getting them out. :) xOx

Adrielle, I'm wishing I had some about now. :) Late in the afternoon and I am hungry. xOx

Thanks for stopping by with such sweet words about my Blog & Post. I agree, nothing quite compares to the Thrill Of The Hunt, I must have been born to do it because it is one of my lifelong pleasures!
