All day breakfast: pancakes

Pancakes

I don’t know about you guys but I’m a huge fan of breakfast. And hello, what’s better than pancakes! This time we actually ate these as dinner but who cares. All day breakfast is a thing, right?

Pancakes is one of the most versatile breakfast dishes I know. You can make plain pancakes, sweet pancakes, savoury pancakes, sweet and savoury together… I’ll include our recipe down below together with some great variations.

One batter, four cake variations

Helloo!

It’s a dreadful and rainy day today, which can only mean one thing: baking day! I felt like trying something new but was not entirely sure what, so I started thinking until I had some ideas. I decided to try all four ideas at once, and create four different cakes with only one base batter.

I’m at my parents’ place in the middle of nowhere so I can’t run to the store to get supplies if we don’t have what I need. Okay, to be fair it’s only 15 minutes by bike but that’s way too far when it’s raining! So I had to work with what we had. I found apples and cinnamon, instant coffee, dark chocolate and oranges, pecans and honey. Not too bad.

Hey there!

Today I share with you a recipe to one of my favourite things in the whole wide world: carrot cake. When it’s baked properly you’ll have the perfect combination of sweet cake with spices, topped with a delicious lemon cream cheese topping. Yummm!

Last Saturday I celebrated my birthday for family in our apartment in Breda. I baked this cake as well as a simple chocolate/vanilla cake, and asked my mum to bring an apple pie. The carrot cake was so popular, and I received so many compliments! Make this cake the star of your birthday too, with this great recipe.

Too good to be true: easy oatmeal cookies

Goooodmorning all!
It’s time for a baking recipe, and I’ve got a good one to share with you today. These oatmeal cookies are a little sticky but have a nice bite to them, and a great taste too: honey and a variation of nuts. Oatmeal is quite healthy, tasty and it leaves you satisfied for a long time. That’s why I like to use it so much! (See: apple crumble oatmeal pie for breakfast and homemade granola for example) Last week I tried a recipe of +Chickslovefood for easy oatmeal cookies. Because I used honey as sweetener and coconut oil to stick them together it’s not that unhealthy, either. What’s not to love…

I’ll be sharing more baking recipes with you, too: Gijs (the boyfriend) just started with his placement and I thought I’d give him some healthy snacks for in the train, like this cookie. Also, its my birthday next week!
