In the meantime, I wanted to post about the Cherry Vanilla Bean Pancakes we made this morning. I loved them for a bunch of reasons: 1. I had everything I needed in the pantry, 2. Very tasty, 3. Vegan and gluten-free to the max, 4. Cherries and vanilla!, 5. Our young house guest loved 'em, 4. Dazee loved 'em, (he's well known for his particular tastes), and the recipe made enough to fill all three of our tummies.
|I love the way the cherry juice ebbs into the pancake batter.|
For true, even though Allyson is my friend and her publisher sent me this cookbook for free to review, these are our new favorite pancakes.
The pancakes were a breeze to put together and cooked up fluffy and golden brown, with no starchy aftertaste, which I notice sometimes with xgfx baking. I have a freezer stuffed with frozen local cherries, so I was more than happy to dip into my stash for these, which will now be on a permanent breakfast food rotation in our house.
Happy pancake world! I hope to try her homemade ravioli and bagels soon! And cinnamon roasted cauliflower! And I need to tell you about the garlicky-noochy croutons I made from her brown bread.
