Blueberry Day Off Pancakes!

July 6, 2010 at 10:46 pm 11 comments

Yesterday I took the liberty to cancel my clients (wooh) and sit outside my friend’s pool and take in the 100+ degree heat in style. But before that, I really wanted waffles – and I didn’t  have a waffle iron to get my needs met. So I turned to Isa and Vegan Brunch and attacked the “Classic Pancake” recipe (also in Vegan with a Vengeance).  I added a cup of fresh blueberries I got to flipping

These were delicious and filling and really way too warm to eat on a hot hot morning with hot hot coffee.  There’s not much else to say about these, except vegan or not no one would ever know. That carries a lot of weight around here.

And really, this post is dedicated to my new boyfriend: Mr. Waffle Iron.  He’s way too shy for an unveiling just now, but I brought him home today because I had a $20 thingy for Kohls from my mama and Mr. Waffle Iron ended up being $10.  FYI:  I did not grow up with homemade waffles and feel like I’m missing out big time during my weekend breakfasts, being limited to pancakes and  french toast.  In fact, when I called my sister and told her the good news – she shared my enthusiasm with “That’s going to be so fun! I’m jealous”.  It’s the little things people.

Look forward to my first ever waffle post soon!

    Oh my gosh! You just reminded me I have Kohl’s thingies TOO! Waffle iron is MINE- I’ve been wanting one forever, but I’m always like, I really don’t *need* that… Thank you for the reminder!! My Kohl’s thingies would have completely gone to waste, forgotten in my handbag!

      Haha Keri you made me laugh – when I wrote “thingy” I was sort of embarrassed but really felt that it best summed up what it was without going into details. So more or less, I’m glad I mentioned my thingy and can’t wait to see what you whip up!! 🙂

    ha! I JUST wrote about pancakes too: But coconut chocolate pancakes! Great minds think alike, maybe? 😉 I wish I had some of these though, they look divine!

    I do have a waffle iron-but I dont know how to use it. its only turned into a disaster for me!

      Jessica, attack that waffle iron! It’s a Sunday breakfast revolution – starts next week! 🙂

    I’m jealous too! A waffle iron is one of those “unitaskers” that I haven’t been able to justify buying yet :]

    • 9. Amanda  |  July 7, 2010 at 6:37 pm

      Haha unitaskers, I never outwardly thought of it using that word but I see your point – which is why I also never acquired one. I’m so excited though, anything to increase my carbload!

    I was just gonna say, Jessica is posting about pancakes too! I wish I could eat as much as you two do!

      Haha it’s our cats, they drive us to overindulge in the kitchen!
