Danish Design meets American Buttermilk Pancakes

Afternoon Pancakes #3 combined the great taste of American Buttermilk Pancakes with the aesthetic expression of Royal Danish Porcelain.

As you can see, I had made quite a tall stack of pancakes, trying to follow the good example of Rasmus Klump also known as Rasmus Lump. I grew up with the comic strip of Rasmus Lump, but never got to enjoy a stack of pancakes as tall as his. Yesterday came close.

The pancakes turned out great, and I served them with fresh berries and syrup. The fresh berries gave them a taste of summer.

I found these pancakes to be the best ones yet! But more are still to come.

Wednesday I will travel to Iceland, and maybe find inspiration for another great recipe.

Afternoon Pancakes #2 – I confess to an egg.

Actually I confess to two eggs! Afternoon Pancakes was once again a pleasure – friends and pancakes are a combination that just can´t go wrong.

I do however confess to “pimping” the recipe with two eggs…

When I did a trial run on Friday, I found that the pancakes needed a little extra, when served “plain”, which means without anything cooked into them. So I simply added 2 eggs. It did the trick!

Baking these Dutch pancakes was a bit different, because of the fresh yeast that goes into them. It was fun to try, and worked great. Amazing to watch the yeast bubble in less than 10 minutes. Just look at this;

I made 2,5 times the recipe for 7 people. There was 2 pancakes left over (no one held back), and Katrine got those to take home to her boyfriend, so that she wouldn´t have to bake her self.

None of my guests had ever tried Dutch Pancakes before. They all liked them, and the syrup (stroop) and powdered sugar where a hit.

If you haven´t tried the recipe yet, I recommend you invite good friends and try them soon. With or without the eggs..

California Dreamin’ with Pancake Friendly Friends

Arrived in LA last night and I am looking forward to spending a week in California. 

I am traveling with 3 good friends from Denmark – Pancake Friendly of course – and we can’t wait to explore.

We didn’t know that it was Spring Break but I am sure that will only make the State even more alive.

So a week of Pancake Spring Break for us. I will keep you posted.  

Let me tell you about Katrine

Katrine is really the essence of Awareness Compassion Pancakes.

I know a lot of wonderful people, and Katrine stands out as one of the most aware, compassionate and pancake loving of them all.

I met Katrine many years ago, she was a student of mine, and she worked at my company for a couple of years.

Even at a very young age, she amazed me with her level of awareness and always positive attitude. She has her own strong believes – and at the same time she is incredibly unprejudiced. Something that is rarely seen.

With Katrine “what you see is what you get” – and WOW you get a lot.

Katrine is a master of self-compassion and compassion for others, and I think, that her ability for both is what makes her a great therapist. Katrine runs her own business and offers reflexology, massage and acupuncture as some of her services.

No no – I am not forgetting the pancakes!

At my Afternoon Pancakes #1 Katrine was the one who ate the most – and with the biggest smile!

When she came home that night, her boyfriend was a little jealous of all the pancakes she had had, so what did she do? Well, she baked the family pancakes of course!

Just the other day she posted this picture on my Facebook page. Do you see the heart?

I am grateful to know Katrine. I don´t see her as much as I would like, but whenever I think of her it brings a smile to my face.
