What a day!!!
I started my day with a quick yoga stretch and made myself a stack of pancakes. I promised the recipe and so here it is. Not really… But it’s down below after I quickly summarized a few hours of my Sunday. =]
I went to the city to meet with my high school friend for lunch (and post lunch). Basically food after food. =p
Oh! I finally went to Dominique Ansel Bakery. Yea.. About time. Tried their cookie shots and all other baked goods. It was so sweet! I think the best thing about that cookie shot was the milk. It tasted like melted vanilla ice cream. The other stuff that we tried (which I didn’t photograph) tasted like… the fridge… You know when you eat something and you have that fridge odor cause it’s been sitting in there, uncovered, for a while? Yea.. So all I have to say is… It’s overrated! Sorry Dominique.
Quick summary right?
So here is my breakfast. Tiramisu pancakes.
1/2 cup spelt (or all purpose)
3 TBS rolled oats
A pinch of salt
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp espresso powder
1/2 cup milk of almond milk
A few drops of stevia pinch stevia (or 1-1/2 TBS liquid sweetener of choice)
2 tsp rum extract
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 TBS oil (I used peanut oil)
1/4 cup silken tofu
1 TBS almond milk
A few drops of stevia (or 2 TBS preferred sweetener)
Cacao powder (for dusting)
serve 1 -2
1. Whisk all dry ingredients in a bowl until well combined.
2. In a separate bowl (or a measuring cup), whisk together all pancake liquid ingredients.
3. Create a well in the center of the dry ingredient mixture.While whisking, pour the wet mixture into the well, and stir to form a batter.
4. Preheat greased pan on medium. When the pan is hot, drop about 2 tablespoons of batter onto the skillet. Cook for a a few minutes, or until edges look dry. Flip and cook for another minute or so. Transfer to a plate, and let it cool. Repeat until all the batter is cooked.
Blend all the ingredients (except cacao powder). Spread a dollop of frosting on a pancake, top it with another pancake, and repeat. Dust cacao powder on the top, and enjoy!
