Sunday Breakfast

Jen and I met up for breakfast on this snowy Salt Lake Sunday, at The Rose Establishment. I had a hot cup of the daily French Press and it hit the spot. So deliciously perfect. I also had one if their poppy seed scones, sorry I didn’t take a picture – I consumed it so quickly! Jen had one of their whole wheat and spiced apple “Pop-Tarts” and an Americano. It’s always nice to catch up over hot drinks on a cold wintery day. So far, today is great. We’ll keep you posted.

Delicious Multi-Grain Pancakes

Baby, it’s cold outside and the leaves are falling.  It’s beautiful but my herb garden won’t be around for long, so thank goodness for fresh herbs at our local markets these days.  I still think there is more flavor and fragrance when it comes straight from the garden into the kitchen.

Here’s one of my breakfast favorites using mint from my herb garden.  Multi-Grain Pancakes with Mint and Raisins.

    Multi-Grain Pancakes    
1 C. Multi-Grain Flour
1 1/2 C. Krusteaz Pancake Mixture
2 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt
Mix these dry ingredients in a large mixing bowl.

Add in 1 C. of milk and 1 C. of Water
Whisk mixture together (add milk or water if desired to thin the consistency, I like it the
consistency of cake batter)
Chop 3-4 mint leaves and 1/2 C. of raisins, add to the batter and mix slowly.
Let batter sit for 5 min.

Heat a non-stick pan to medium high, if using a good quality pan – there isn’t a need to put butter down or use a non-stick spray (once the pan is hot, put down a small amount of batter to determine this).

Use 1/8 C. to scoop batter into pan.  Cook on first side until bubbles pop in batter, then flip and cook for one to two minutes on the second side, checking occasionally to make sure it doesn’t burn.

I love to serve these with fresh apricot or raspberry jam, but that’s up to you.  Make It Your Own!
