Mardi Gras King Cake

Traditions and customs are plenty when it comes to the King Cake. I made a cake that is more in line with those found in the Southeast United States, centering around the New Orleans Mardi Gras festivities. I used natural food dyes {spinach green, blueberry purple and pineapple gold} to decorate my cinnamon-roll King Cake with the iconic Mardi Gras colors.

Chia Seed Pancakes

Home sweet home. There is something about the first pancakes on the deck on a sunny summer morning that makes a new place feel like home. My boys devour these nutrient-loaded banana-oatmeal-chia hotcakes, typically with peanut butter and a splash of syrup, while I like to top mine with almond butter and berries.

Chocolate Cherry Pancakes

Earlier this summer we had an overflowing bowl of cherries and out of nowhere my son wanted to make cherry pancakes. Inspired by Ben & Jerry’s Cherry Garcia ice cream, I decided to take it up a notch and add chocolate.

Blackberry Maple Syrup

Shrove Tuesday. Fat Tuesday. Mardi Gras (literally “Fat Tuesday” in French). Pancake Day. No matter what your background is, today offers a fun excuse to have pancakes for dinner (something that was always one of my favorites when I was a kid). To celebrate, I made my buttermilk pancakes more festive with a chunky blackberry maple syrup.

I typically make an assortment of flavors when I make ebleskiver but these Nutella-filled pancakes are so yummy that they deserve their own post. They are also a delicious way to celebrate World Nutella Day.

Ebleskiver

Ebleskiver are similar to the American version of pancakes except that they seem to be lighter and fluffier due to the egg whites being beaten into stiff peaks. I like to make an assortment of flavors when I make ebleskiver, leaving some plain and filling the others with a variety of ingredients.

Pfannkuchen (German Pancakes)

This recipe comes from my good friend, Milena, in Germany. Similar to crêpes, German pancakes are large and thin and can be used for both sweet and savory dishes. When I made these recently for breakfast, I made the sweeter version and added grated apples and blueberries to some of the pancakes.

Adding sweet potato or pumpkin purée to your buttermilk pancakes is a great way to sneak veggies and vitamins into your family’s breakfast. You can make the pancakes any time of year but they are especially comforting during the autumn and winter months.
