Operation: Beautiful Pancakes

86 comments

Good morning!

For those of you who were asking, the Vanilla Bean Paste is from William Sonoma. I bought it when I was using up my gift card the other week. I’m sure you can find it online for cheaper though!

This morning’s breakfast was my treat for working so late last night!

I also snuck in a humid 3 mile run. The humidity was thick!

The run:

Distance: 3.21 miles

Time: 27:59

Avg pace: 8:43 min/mile

It was a good run, but a gross + humid run. Still, I will take humidity over snow and ice any day! My camelbak saved the day as usual.

Breakfast was amazing…

If I didn’t already eat breakfast I would totally go make those pancakes right now! Maybe I’ll just have breakfast again for dinner. It’s so awesome that you’re going to Paris! I have never been there but would love to go someday.

Those are some absolutely delicious looking pancakes for an absolutely amazing Caitlin! I bet you’d be able to give the restaurants in Paris a run for their money!

I’ve been up since 5am, west coast time waiting for Caitlin’s interview’s live stream.

This pancake will be my morning treat for getting out of bed early, working out, do laundry and being so productive. Love the berries galore on the plate too.

What a coincidence!
My pancakes on Sunday looked quite similar to yours :-)
I used your Healthy Spelt Pancakes Recipe and turned mine into blueberry pancakes. As for toppings, I had peanut butter, homemade strawberry jam, fresh berry mix (raspberries, blueberries, blackberries) and maple syrup. They were beyond delicious!!!!!!!!!!!!

I was able to watch it as I am working for home today – she did a great job! Thanks for the link. I had been waiting for it to come up so I could post it to FB.
Those pancakes look amazing – they might be my Saturday morning project this week if it’s not too hot.

I can’t get Caitlin’s video interview in Europe, but the story in Today’s website sounds amazing! What else sounds amazing? Those pancakes!

Quick question: I notice you use a lot of spelt or alternative flours in baking. Do you steer away from wheat intentionally?

Reply

AngelaOSG August 9, 2010

I use spelt because it has a high protein content and it is very easily digested in the body.

OMg those pancakes are totally drool-worthy! Definitely on my must-make list!

p.s. I’ve seen that same vanilla bean paste at Home Sense (at least at the one in Whitby) for a fraction of the price Williams and Sonoma charges. FYI for when you’re ready to replenish ;)

Oh my gosh – I almost fainted it was so humid on my run yesterday. And then today it was cooler, but I was literally running in a cloud it was so foggy!

Great run, Angela! Today was SO HUMID here, too! Luckily I woke up early and got outside at 6AM. But it was way worse than it was even at the shore when I was there last week. I bet we’re in for some crazy t-storms later. Gorgeous pancake pics, by the way! I love how you pile ‘em high with fruit.
