I haven’t posted a pancake recipe in ages – but the other night I had a craving and made Cook’s Illustrated Buttermilk Pancakes for dinner. Don’t tell! Breakfast for dinner! Why does that freak some people out? I say we need it more often! There should be a movement!
So this year must have just been a killer year for blueberries! I’m seeing so many gorgeous ones at the store, the markets, everywhere. And so I’ve made several blueberry desserts & recipes, some successes, some maybe not so much. One that was a huge success is this Blueberry Buckle. The folks, especially my Da, went nuts over this!
Awhile back, I made the most marvelous Strawberry Cheesecake Pancakes for Mother’s day. They were awesome. They were fabulous. But they set off some kind of deep seated craving for more brunch! More and more brunch! I want brunch all the time, now! Do you ever get like that – just go on a kick like a runaway train?
If there was ever a frugal “cheat” of a dessert, Profiteroles, or Cream Puffs, as they are often called, have to be it. Easy to make, requiring no special equipment, although a piping bag & tip is nice, inexpensive, and make ahead. And once made, they can be filled & topped with all kinds of deliciousness. What more could one want?
I suppose these bars should have a better name. They’re luscious, creamy and dreamy from the silky custard topping, just bursting with blueberries, all the way down to the gorgeous shortbread crust.
