Lemon Ricotta Pancakes

Firstly, to my children: These are not your Momma’s pancakes. I was the worst Mom in the morning and I apologize. I’m surprised you didn’t starve to death or die of malnutrition. And now, here I am making pancakes (and all kinds of breakfasty things) for the folks all the time. Secondly, even when I did make pancakes, they weren’t these Lemon Ricotta Pancakes.

Scones & Shortcakes

Shortcake is a sweet cake or biscuit (in the American sense: that is, a crumbly bread that has been leavened with baking powder or baking soda). A scone is a single-serving quick bread/cake, usually made of wheat, barley or oatmeal with baking powder as a leavening agent and baked on sheet pans.

Coffee Cakes

Obviously, I need to make more coffee cakes! Here are some of my faves.

In the United States, coffee cake generally refers to a sweet cake intended to be eaten with coffee or tea (like tea cake). Coffee cakes, as an accompaniment for coffee, are often single layer, flavored with either fruit or cinnamon, and leavened with either baking soda (or baking powder), which results in a more cake-like texture, or yeast, which results in a more bread-like texture.

Best Basic Pancakes (Betty Crocker)

One Saturday morning, I woke up to two beaming youngsters. My daughter had pulled out a couple of cookbooks and found this recipe in an old Betty Crocker cookbook. To my mind, it’s the first thing she ever really made, and she was around 10. I’m still boggled! The logistics of making and cooking pancakes is a lot for a child that age. Heck, it’s a lot for me (not a morning person.)

Ever since I picked up my little cake pan tray, below, I’ve been dying to make something in them. When I came across a pic of Panera’s Strawberry Rhubarb Mini Cakes, the anticipation became an obsession. They were so darling!

Alton Brown’s Really Good Waffles

Are you a waffle lover? I am. I love a good waffle. I like to make them for dinner – because they’re just too much of a pain to make in the a.m. Unless it’s a lazy weekend, still in my bathrobe, thinking about getting my shower done after breakfast, morning.

Swedish Pancakes “Pannkakor” with Blueberry Compote

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?
