When I invite people over for breakfast, my go-to dish is usually a nice stack of fluffy buttermilk pancakes. They are quick to make and are so versatile. Serve them savoury with pulled pork or crispy fried chicken, or sweet with fruits, jams or whatever you fancy. In this recipe, I’m topping my stack of fluffy buttermilk pancakes with cinnamon apples and crispy oats.
Cooking for a group can be a bit daunting. So when I had to make something for a group of 20+ co-workers during our “12 Days of Baking/Cooking” event, I decided to make mini buttermilk pancakes stacks. Most of us start early so a breakfast item is always nice, plus these mini pancakes on a stick are pretty easy to eat (no plates required). Plus, these can be prepared ahead of time, then assemble before serving. Oh, and did I mention that strawberries + Nutella is a super yummy combination?! I’ve never had Nutella prior to making this recipe and now I want to eat Nutella straight out of the jar by the spoonful.
La Forêt cafe is one of the newest addition to the Metrotown neighbourhood in Burnaby. From all the beautiful photos on Instagram, it looked like it has an extensive menu of sweet and savoury foods. So I recently visited twice to check out their space and offerings.
