Oops!….I did it again. I made another breakfast recipe. I am sharing another breakfast recipe with you. Here’s the deal. The time of day where I am cooking and eating breakfast the light in my living room/dining room area is so bright and friendly. Slowly I am learning how to use my camera in manual mode. Slowly I am learning more and more about my camera and lens. Slowly. We have a flash too but I still haven’t figured out exactly where to point it or how to bounce that puppy, hence the lack of dinner worthy posts recently. This year I am on a mission to figure out my camera and part of that mission is to take better quality food photos for you. If something looks appetizing on the screen it is safe to bet you will be more likely to give it a try. And that is what I want.
So that brings us back to breakfast. The light is so bright and friendly during the day hence the better-looking daytime photos. Pancakes. There are so many varieties of pancakes out there. Light, fluffy, dense, fruit filled, cinnamon filled, big giant dinner plate ones, and teeny tiny silver dollar ones. These are a medium sized pancake although you could make them as big or little as you’d like. I’d say these fall more on the dense side of light. They were perfectly filling.
I added chia seeds to these pancakes but you could just as easily leave them out. I won’t be offended! Chia seeds are the new “buzz word” food it seems. I’m sure the Aztecs are rolling in their graves. They understood the healthy benefits of these little seeds long long ago. Chia seeds are high in omega-3 which is perfect for this landlocked gal that doesn’t consume tons of fish. Here we were pasting them on to funny shaped clay pots. Ch-ch-ch-chia! Chia seeds really don’t have any flavor. I have been adding them to my plain Greek yogurt for a few years now. So don’t be afraid to give them a try!
So I have to know. What are your favorite pancake toppings? I like to eat my pancakes with butter and a tiny amount of *real* maple syrup. My husband loves to have his drowning in maple syrup. I also love a little butter and homemade applesauce. Mmmmmm. Mmm!
