7 Pancake Dishes That Only Take Minutes To Make
Everyone knows pancakes. But there is more about pancakes than just the typical ones with maple syrup and butter. And these pancakes are ideal breakfasts on summer days to forget the heat. Follow me to find out how to diversify your pancake dishes for your family.
Though its name is pancakes, this breakfast dish looks more like crepes. The only difference is Norwegian pancakes are rolled into thin, flat tubes. Traditionally, each serving has only three rolled pancakes. But here is your kitchen! Eat as many as you want!
There are various toppings for these tasty Norwegian-inspired dishes. Strawberry/lingonberry jam with some sugar on top is the standard choice. But you can replace it with whipped cream and other fruits. You can even stuff these pancakes with Nutella or sauteed apples and cinnamon.
Let’s have a look at the following video:
Do you know what the best thing about this dish is? It’s that you can almost cook it anytime you want. Pancakes only require basic ingredients, and nearly every household has a pack of chocolate chips and some peanut butter.
With this, you can make your own chocolate chip peanut butter pancakes. Watch this video to know more:
Replace the regular butter in the pancake recipe with peanut butter and add several chocolate chips to the batter if you want. After getting the pancakes done, you can melt peanut butter and sprinkle chocolate chips for the toppings.
Banoffee has always been a favorable option to garnish desserts. Combining with bananas, thick caramel sauce, and cream, banoffee provides both richness and sweetness for your sweets. Sometimes, people will even add coffee or chocolate to diverse the flavor.
That’s why chocolate pancakes are a better match with banoffee than typical ones. Make a heap of pancakes and layer them with banana and cream in between. With a drizzle of caramel sauce and cocoa or coffee powder on top, here you have banoffee chocolate pancakes!
Sweet potatoes not only make excellent pancakes but also please your belly. Sweet potatoes tend to be quite sweet compared to regular pancake ingredients, so you can add some sour cream to balance the flavor.
I can’t believe it! They make sweet potato pancakes with only two ingredients! Let’s have a look at the following video:
People commonly combine potatoes with nutmeg, cinnamon, and maple syrup. So, they make a perfect topping. Also, this dish can be seen as a good way to create a cheesy leftover sweet potato treat.
If you want regular-looking pancakes with an untypical taste, this is your answer: Pancakes with Bailey Irish Cream in the mixture. This cream will provide various flavors to your pancakes: cream, vanilla, Irish whiskey, with a hint of cacao.
To make pancakes, replace milk with this Bailey Irish Cream. And use cake flour instead of all-purpose to retain their fluffy and airy texture. You can try different types of Bailey Irish Cream to diversify the flavor. They have Mint Chocolate, Creme Caramel, Hazelnut, and many more.
This dish has tons of names: German pancakes, Dutch babies, Bismarck, and many more. Call it as you like, the flavor still stays delicious no matter what.
German pancakes have a pretty strange appearance compared to other regular ones. Their edges will puff up past the baking tray’s edges, hence the name Puffy pancakes. Maple syrup and all kinds of berries suit these pancakes pretty well.
Watch this video to know more:
They are pancakes and tacos at the same time. What can be more impressive? While tacos are often referred to as savory snacks, I’ll use pancakes to make tacos this time. To enhance the banana flavor in this dish, don’t forget to add mashed bananas to the batter.
The main ingredient for these pancakes-tacos is smooth and rich Greek yogurt. You can sprinkle some spicy cinnamon powder on top to create a “punch” feeling. While this dish is mainly about bananas and yogurt, you can use other fruits in the filling.
Moreover, if you prefer homemade dairy foods, you should buy high-quality Greek yogurt maker and make a big batch of them to enjoy in a variety of dishes.
5 Breakfast Treats With Either Muffins Or Scones
Both muffins and scones are familiar faces of English cuisine. You’ll find many recipes for English muffins with scrambled eggs as a breakfast idea. But what I have here is much more exciting than you’ve thought.
Many people consider muffins a sweet treat. But let me tell you: they can become a wonderful breakfast with scrambled eggs. If you want to prepare these muffins in advance, freeze the uncooked cakes and only thaw them before cooking.
You can turn this dish into burgers by sandwiching prosciutto (Italian dry-cured ham), ham, olives, and cheese between two muffins. Other veggies like cherry tomatoes or red peppers can also work.
Let’s look at these banana chocolate chip muffins first! You can buy a muffin mix with banana flavor or stuff mashed banana in the muffin batter to have more moisture.
Apart from the chocolate chips inside the muffins, you can make a chocolate coating for more sweetness (or bitterness, it’s up to you). These finger foods for breakfast taste delicious, no matter hot or cold. So it’s perfect for either breakfast or midday snacks.
If you find the previous muffins are oversweet, this is a suitable choice for you. With a bittersweet flavor, these coffee muffins will wake you up right away, just like a cup of coffee. Before baking, remember to sprinkle some crumb toppings made of sugar, salt, and cinnamon on the batter.
You can also make a vanilla glaze with sugar, milk, and vanilla for more sweetness. If the icing is too watery, add some confectioners’ sugar in. And only glaze the muffins after they’ve completely cooled down.
You’ve known how to make sweet and bittersweet muffins. Now, it’s time to learn to make some with a sour flavor. As for me, I will choose blueberries as they appear in various desserts. You can use either fresh or frozen ones.
When adding them to the batter, remember to stir gently, just enough to scatter them evenly. Or else, these berries can break and dye your batter purple. Make some simple streusel crumbs with flour, sugar, and butter. Then, sprinkle them on your muffins before baking.
Click to see how soft and crunchy these muffins are at the same time!
For breakfast, I will load mine with banana and chocolate chips. You can use store-bought scones or make ones yourself. If you choose the latter choice, make sure not to overmix the batter so the scones will have a light texture.
There’s no precise instruction on the number of eggs. More eggs mean richer flavors, fewer eggs mean lighter texture. You can choose either option to your liking. Scones can be eaten hot, at room temperature, or even frozen.
While banana and chocolate are a classic combo, white chocolate with raspberry will blow your palate with their unique flavor. For the best result, you’d better leave them frozen quite a bit so that they won’t break and ruin the dough.
Also, using white chocolate for dessert never gets old if you are a big fan of this chocolate type. Their sweetness is truly the best comforting after long working days.
They will show you a step-by-step guide to make these scones. Check it out now!
You can use fresh ones, but be gentle with them. For fresh raspberries, wait until the last minute to add them to the batter. Heavy cream and cane sugar are two suitable choices for this dish.
4 Quick Breakfast Ideas With Cinnamon Rolls
Cinnamon rolls are one of the first choices when thinking of sweets. However, making cinnamon rolls from scratch takes a lot of time and is nowhere near simple. That’s why I recommend you use a premixed baking mix.
This way, you can make cinnamon rolls much faster, though the flavor and texture will change slightly. Making a glaze can compensate for the difference.
Who doesn’t love red velvet? Who doesn’t love cinnamon rolls? Combine these two, and you have a more-than-perfect breakfast. Nowadays, there are some cake mixes with red velvet flavor for a quick breakfast.
For a final touch, mix sugar, butter, vanilla with some milk and pour it on the cinnamon rolls. A layer of cream cheese as a topping will make this dish more satisfying.
For this recipe, you’d better use some Meyer lemons. Although they are pretty acidic like other lemons, Meyer ones are much sweeter and not as tangy. Their zest also brings a spicy and bergamot scent, similar to other spices.
Regular lemons still work just fine, but you will lose some complex flavors compared to the original recipe. Ensure to leave the cream cheese out of this dish as its richness can outshine Meyer lemons’ unique taste.
If you want to bring some festival feelings into your home, cranberry sweet rolls are an excellent way to start. With a vibrant red color and sour flavors of cranberries and orange zest, this dish will capture any eye in the room.
Prepare them with sweet rolls to balance the sourness. This dish can be served as breakfasts, desserts, or snacks. Also, you can use frozen cranberries in this recipe without defrosting them.
Follow this video to make some cranberry sweet rolls for holidays:
Combine apple pie and cinnamon with some twists from lasagna, there I have for you a caramel apple cinnamon roll lasagna. The crunchy, sour apples with soft and sweet cinnamon rolls make a perfect combo for an autumn morning.
To make a lasagna concept, you’ll need to cut cinnamon rolls into thin layers and place them with layers of apple in between. Add sugar, corn starch, cinnamon, and caramel sauce for more flavors.
4 Simple Ways To Use French Toast For Your Breakfast
Plain French toast is obviously convenient. But that’s so boring and unappetizing! I have some simple options to elevate your French toast breakfasts.
It only takes roughly 10 minutes to make this dish. The sweetness of pears caramelized in butter, honey, and vanilla suits perfectly with ricotta’s light saltiness and sourness.
If you are confused between using a toaster or toaster oven for your dish, well, they are all acceptable choices. Or a skillet is another appropriate cookware.
If you are a sweet tooth, glaze this dish with some honey for extra sweetness. You can use either Italian or American ricotta for this treat. The Italian version is quite sweet while the latter is saltier and moister.
If you have some French toast from yesterday, then it’s time to turn them into a warm and fluffy blueberry morning meal. Cut these leftover French toast into cubes and place them in the baking tray. On top is a layer of blueberries. Repeat it until you have 2-3 layers of bread and blueberries.
Bake them until the bread turns golden brown, and you’ve got a dish somewhat similar to a bread pudding. Sprinkle some sugar or milk to balance blueberries’ acidity.
The traditional Banana Foster sauce is made with butter, brown sugar, cinnamon, dark rum, and banana liqueur. However, if you don’t want any alcohol in the morning, you can leave it aside. This won’t affect the dish much.
With this video, this dish can’t be any easier:
Melt the butter and add sugar, cinnamon, spices, and pecans if you want. Mix them evenly, then add and gently stir banana slices in the mixture. Pour them on a tray of French toast and bake it. You can enjoy the dish as it is or with ice cream, whipped cream, or nuts as toppings.
Instead of regular bread, in this recipe, I will use Panettone instead. For people not knowing about this sweet, Panettone is a sweet bread originating from Italy. What’s unique about it is people leave fruits fermented in the Panettone dough before baking it, hence its unique flavor.
Of course, making Panettone from scratch is quite a challenge, so it’s better if you buy a ready-made one. Slice it into thick portions, then dip them into a mixture of milk, eggs, nutmeg, cinnamon, salt, and sugar. Fry the slices in the skillet until they turn golden brown. Use this dish with nectarine and creme fraiche.
3 Filling Options To Start Your Days With Grains
Don’t only think of cereals when talking about grains! I will release you from that boring breakfast with these satisfying recipes.
This is an ideal egg-free option for a quick breakfast on chilly mornings. Cook quinoa in almond milk, cinnamon, and vanilla for a warm, nutrient-rich porridge. Eating it with figs will lighten the flavor.
If you can’t find figs in your area, switch them with pears, apples, berries, bananas, or any citrus fruits. Cardamom and ginger are also decent options to add besides cinnamon for more flavors. Sprinkling some toasted coconut flakes or nuts makes a perfect finish.
Oatmeal with water may sound boring, but try it with coconut milk for a change, you’ll be surprised with its flavor. Oatmeal’s filling flavor goes perfectly with the creamy yet delicate coconut milk. Plus, you can make desserts with oatmeal too.
Not to mention, ripe persimmons make an ideal partner with their soft texture. You can replace persimmons with other tropical fruits having the same texture, such as mangoes, papayas, bananas, etc.
Oatmeal cookies are a classic breakfast but never lose their charm. You can fill them with whatever you find in your fridge or kitchen cabinet. Chocolate, nuts, or dried fruits, oatmeal cookies accept them all.
However, you’d better stick with the classic oatmeal when making this. Quick oats make the cookies less chewy, and instant ones thicken them too much. Also, don’t forget to use brown sugar in this recipe. Or else your cookies will lose their signature texture.
Let’s have a look at the video for 3 ways to elevate oatmeal cookies.
What Breakfast Can I Make With Waffles?
Children indeed love waffles. But how to make a healthy breakfast with waffles for them? Well, I have three ideas for you to try.
Greek yogurt waffles are both a tasty and healthy breakfast. Greek yogurt is an excellent source of protein, calcium, and probiotics. So, adding it to your waffles provides various health benefits. Not to mention, this dish is effortless to make.
Start watching this and learn how to make one:
You only need 3-5 minutes to cook one waffle with your iron. Place a pat of butter on your waffles right when they’re freshly baked, and pour some warm maple syrup on top. Watching the butter melt is one of my favorites. You can serve this dish in either sweet (with fruits) or savory style (with bacon, fried eggs, etc).
You want some grilled cheese but only have waffles left? Why don’t you combine them into one? Place one waffle on the grilled pan and put a slice of Brie cheese with a scoop of blueberry compote on top. Place another waffle on the topmost.
Grill them, and there you have a waffle grilled cheese. Since the dish is already savoring enough on its own, you only need to drizzle some maple syrup.
If you get sick of typical waffles, let’s switch to a yummy puff pastry breakfast for a change! The puff pastry dough is suitable with both sweet and savory fillings. Here I will use it with guava paste and cream cheese.
Guava paste is a thick paste made from guava, a sweet tropical fruit, and sugar with some pectin add. This thick puree goes exceptionally well with cream cheese. In fact, both of these ingredients are often served together. So, why not combine them with these waffles?
5 Breakfasts Using None Of Those Above Ingredients
Pancakes, muffins, scones, cinnamon rolls, and so on all become too familiar at some points. And you might want to try something new and exciting. Let me show you these 5 recipes below for a change!
When summer comes, and it’s getting hot and sticky, you might need something both sour and sweet to wake your brain up. The answer is strawberry shortcakes! And no, I don’t talk about ones that take hours to make.
For a simple style, you can buy some sponge cakes in stores or make some beforehand. Then bake them at 450°F for about 5 minutes. While waiting for your shortcakes, make a strawberry syrup and whipped cream for the topping.
This dish is also perfect to serve as an impressive birthday breakfast treat. So if your kid’s birthday is coming, pin this recipe now!
One thing I love about strudel is that you can make it beforehand. Just prepare the pastry in the previous evening and leave it to chill in the freezer. Then you only need to defrost it, and the result is a buttery texture.
Apple strudel is one of the most common options when it comes to this sweet. However, you can elevate this yummy apple-based breakfast by adding cream cheese to the filling. The richness of sour-and-sweet cream cheese will make you unable to stop devouring this sweet.
Maybe this dish’s name is one of the weirdest. Actually, monkey bread got its name as people use their fingers to tear the bread pieces out, just like the monkey. In this recipe, you will fill each sweet yeast dough piece with a chocolate kiss before baking.
WaAfter watching this, you will become a master of making monkey bread!
Traditionally, people will cover monkey bread with melted butter, cinnamon, or chopped pecans. Serve this dish right when it’s still warm so you can shred the bread more easily.
This recipe is an excellent way to get rid of all overripe bananas in your house, especially when you’re not used to combining them with pastry. Just slice the bananas into round pieces and fry them for 2-3 minutes, then you’re good to go!
Have some cinnamon and sugar sprinkles on top and eat them with fruit yogurt for a healthy breakfast. Make sure your bananas are just slightly overripe with some brown spots. Or else, this will turn mushy.
Who doesn’t love lemon loaf? With its moist and lemony flavor, this cake easily steals your heart (or your stomach). It also doesn’t require 10-year baking experience to succeed. Not to mention, you can store it for a few days outside.
Thus, lemon loaf is a perfect choice for breakfast. You can use it with Greek yogurt for more health benefits. The leftover cake should be kept in an airtight container instead of the fridge. Refrigerating lemon loaf only reduces its moisture.
What Are You Going To Make Next Morning?
It’s said that “Breakfast like a king”. That’s how important your breakfast is. Not only does it provide energy for your all-day activities, but eating breakfast also improves your blood sugar levels. For those who are on diets, breakfast is unskippable as it would help burn calories.
