Yesterday, I went on a little baking spree. For breakfast, I made an "Oven-Puffed Pancake with Chocolate & Berries" (taken from the book "Enlightened Chocolate") Recipe below ~
It was SO good!
OVEN PUFFED PANCAKE WITH CHOCOLATE & BERRIES
2 Tbs Powdered Sugar
1 Tbs Unsweetened Cocoa powder (not Dutch Process)
1 ounce Bittersweet Chocolate, finely chopped or grated
½ C all-purpose flour1/2 C fat-free milk
¼ tsp salt1 large egg1 large egg white1 tsp vanilla extract1 Tbs unsalted butter
2 C assorted berries (I used strawberries)
1. Preheat oven to 425. Sift the powdered sugar & cocoa powder into a small bowl; stir in chocolate and set aside.
2. In a medium bowl, whisk the flour, milk, salt, egg, egg white, and vanilla until blended. Melt the butter in a 10 inch cast iron skillet over medium heat. Pour batter into skillet and cook 1 minute (do not stir)
3. Transfer skillet to oven and bake 16-18 minutes or until puffed and golden. Sprinkle with the chocolate-cocoa mixture and bake 1 minute longer. Cut into quarters; serve immediately with fresh berries.

I was planning to go on a picnic with my husband yesterday for
lunch,but the weather wasn't cooperating. So, instead,
we had a picnic on the floor in the living room..
I made panini & pizza bread using the Cibatta
recipe I made the other day.
|Our picnic lunch|
|Pizza bread (just add sauce, tomato & shredded mozzarella. Heat it in the oven)|
|Bleeding Hearts from the garden|
|It was quite a spread!|
|Kobe joined us too..|
That was our little bit of creativity for the day!
