I'm sitting here very much enjoying the peace and quiet while my husband entertains the kids in the other room and I'm chowing down on the yogourt pancakes I made for our New Year's Eve dinner. And Tweeting. And Facebooking. And blogging. I'm the anti-mindfulness.
People ask me for this recipe a lot as we serve it every time we invite people over for breakfast.
Damn. I just got berry coulis on my shirt. There goes another one.
This recipe is adapted from the 1975 edition of Joy of Cooking by Irma Rombauer.
- 1 1/2 cups whole grain flour
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1/2 tsp baking powder
- 3/4 tsp baking soda
- 2 tbsp sugar
- 1 egg
- 2 cups yogourt (I tend to use the fruity kind, always organic, of course!)
No special cooking instructions. Just cook as you would regular pancakes.
For the berry coulis, I just take a bunch of frozen mixed berries, throw them in a pot, add a bit of water, let them defrost and heat up, then I purée with my hand blender and add maple syrup to sweeten. They go supremely well with those pancakes.
And lastly, for your New Year's Eve viewing pleasure, this is what happens when the two year old is left unsupervised with my camera. I'm impressed.
