Citrus Berry Pancake Cake

You’re really going to like this.


At least I hope you really like it.


No... I’m sure you’re going to like it. Why?



Because it’s delicious.


This idea is stolen. I’ll admit it, I am a blogger stalker. And a huge percentage of the foods I make are based off of blogger recipes. Because let’s face it, all these bloggers out here are really smart cookies. And they have great ideas, and the cooking chops to back it up. So when I make their recipes I try to make it better (which, is not always possible, because it can’t get any better), or suit it to my tastes. So when I saw this in Peanut Butter Fingers, I knew Julie was on to something.



And so my quest for the Pancake Cake began. A baked pancake that is light and tender, with a crispy exterior, and lots of flavor! It took three attempts, and a lot of reading, but I got it. It’s perfect. Don’t change a thing. And I am usually an advocate for “make it your own” but really, make it as is first. And then add chocolate... I know I would.



Citrus Berry Pancake Cake

Serves 2


1 egg

3/4 cup milk

3 Tbls melted butter

Zest of 1/2 a medium size lemon (~ 1 tsp)

Juice of 1/2 medium size lemon (~ 1 tsp)

2 Tbls sugar

1 tsp vanilla

3/4 cup AP flour

1/4 Whole wheat flour

1 1/2 tsp Baking Powder

1 tsp salt


Topping:

1/3 cup frozen mixed berries

1 Tbls sugar


- Preheat oven to 425*

- In a medium size bowl beat egg and milk with hand mixer (or stand mixer) for about 3 minutes, until light and foamy

- Beat in melted butter, lemon zest, juice, sugar and vanilla

- Mix in flours, baking powder and salt, stir until just incorporated, batter should be lumpy

- Spray 6X9 pan with non-stick spray, spread batter in to pan

- Sprinkle top with berries, pushing them down slightly (berries should not be covered with batter), and then sprinkle with sugar

- Bake at 425* for approximately 20 minutes, until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean

-Serve with maple syrup, or powdered sugar, and sweetened whipped cream



MIYO (make it your own)

The toppings and mix-ins are endless. Here are a few combos that I plan on trying:

- Beat pumpkin into wet ingredients, with cinnamon, and nutmeg

- Beat a mashed banana (or melted peanut butter) into wet, and mix in chocolate chips

- Almond extract, sliced almond, and orange zest/juice

- Top it with maple syrup, powdered sugar, chocolate shavings, sweetened whipped cream, powdered sugar glaze, nuts, fruit coulis, sprinkles


Good to the last drop.

  3. By keeping up on your regular payments, you are helping your credit history.

    What is not understood is that this insurance is tacked
    onto the front of the personal loans. Since people who
    say "I need a personal loan quick but I have bad credit," can now get them easily,
    they sometimes overindulge and are not careful about making sure the terms of
    their personal loans fit into their lifestyle and budget.

  7. What the heck i just read? The first thing is to discuss
    with the physician previous to using this supplement. The extract of Yacon Syrup is obtainable as
    pills and products and consulting a health care professional will provide you a transparent understanding
    of the fact will it fit your preferences or not.
    This remedy usually satisfies requirements of all of the
    individuals but exceptions are usually there.

    So, you must make sure that you are not the one who could not
    work with this product. Another thing is regarding
    the dose. It is advisable to ask your physician concerning absorption and be specific about this authentic Yacon Syrup.

    WOW.Nice read here. The actual factor to exactly how this remedy
    will work is it can be a dual action diet supplement,
    meaning that it operates as an appetite reducing drug plus a
    "fat burner". This actually means that it oxidizes your fat cells by using anti-oxidants,
    and that results in even more strength for your needs - but only when know how taking authentic Yacon Syrup in the proper manner.A lot of diet supplements currently available were created all over
    reving up your metabolic rate, which can be not really healthy for most people - and that is why more and more are deciding to buy Yacon Syrup extract instead.
