On the weekend I normally like to make a special breakfast so as to save our cereal for the weekdays when we need to eat in a hurry. I was browsing through some of the blogs I normally visit and I stumbled upon this recipe. I have never heard of German pancakes before and it sounded easy enough (plus I have been dying to use my blender again). Before going into the oven:
And after I cut it and dusted it with powdered sugar:
I didn't make the buttermilk syrup but instead I added some sugar and a little vanilla to the batter (which I cut in half). I then baked it in a 9x9 inch glass pan. Each slice ended up being about 1/2 inch thick. It was surprisingly good! The center almost had the consistency of a custard, but tasted like a pancake. It was so easy to make too that we are most certainly going to make this one again.
Remember the azalea bonsai I received from Mike pre-Valentine's day? Well all the gorgeous flowers are starting to bloom:
Aren't the pretty?!? Oh, and if you have a keen eye, you will see in the top picture, in the lower right, some avocado seeds. The large one on top is a Florida avocado and the smaller bottom one is a haas avocado. Mike has successfully got at least 4 seeds to sprout and he is working on some more for our garden.
Please stay tuned for some chorizo tacos tomorrow! In the mean time, please enjoy this photo I took back in 2006 when I was with a class canoeing in a river near Tallahassee, FL. You can see the outline of a large manatee that was trying to swim under our canoe:
