I’m especially not happy about this because Ben was ready and willing to go on a walk/run with me. He mentioned wanting to do a race recently and wanted to run this morning. I was super excited, but our plans were foiled by the monsoon outside.
So, we decided to make breakfast and hope it lets up a bit. Ben was in charge of the coffee. He made espresso in this new espresso maker thingy we got from Marshall’s. You put it right on the stove burner. Crazy.
And I used my new Scanpan Professional Griddle to cook breakfast. The company offered to send me one of their super fancy griddles since I am a huge advocate of Pancake Sunday. It’s a tradition to make pancakes on Sundays, and up until today I’d just been using whatever was clean a small frying pan. I can tell this griddle will also be good for warming tortillas.
It comes with a handle cover so you don’t burn your hands while flipping your ‘cakes in a grand fashion. Not that I do that, but I would rather not burn my hands in general.
For some reason I love the name “Scanpan” and kept shouting it while cooking. I don’t know if you’ve picked up on this yet but, I’M LOUD!
Warning: Just because you have a fancy professional griddle, doesn’t mean your first batch of pancakes will come out professional looking or tasting.
Luckily, I am great at saving the pancake day and realized they were too runny. Nothing a little extra flour couldn’t fix. I added some cranberries while cooking too.
Wa-la! A delicious stack of pumpkin cranberry pancakes.
In the end, I wasn’t a fan of cranberries in the pancakes. Fail. But, they were still yummy, I just wouldn’t add them again.
Question: Did you have a fancier than usual breakfast this morning?
