Cinnamon Quince Puff Pancake

I will definitely be cooking through several of the entries from September's Secret Recipe Club. So many delectable looking dishes. I'm pleased to be part of this group of talented foodie bloggers.

One that caught my eye was a Puff Pancake with Caramelized Cinnamon Apples by Grumpy's Honeybunch whose origins were derived from Cookin' Mimi's Apple Puff Pancake.

A single word came to mind when I read through those recipes: breakfast!

So this morning I whipped up my own puff pankcake. I was about to chalk it up to a kitchen flop because it didn't appear to be puffing. But in the final minutes in the oven, it puffed up beautifully.  Here's my version...

  • 1 C white whole wheat flour

  • 4 eggs

  • 1 C coconut milk

  • 1/4 t pink Himalaya salt

  • 2 T olive oil

  • cinnamon poached quince

  • powdered sugar for garnish

  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees.In a medium bowl mix together the flour, salt, eggs, and coconut milk until smooth. Butter a round baking dish. Pour batter into baking dish, return to oven and bake for 20-30 minutes or until lightly browned. Top with cinnmon poached quince and dust with powdered sugar for garnish if desired.


    1. lol, how funny...I am way late in getting around. Tonight has been my first night to get to go visit blogs since we posted! I too thought I had a flop but when I peeked a few times later in the baking process I saw that it was puffing up ... I plan to make this again soon when Grumpy is home. Glad I inspired you to try them!

    Quick Pickled Red Onions and Radishes

    If you've been reading my blog for even a short amount of time, you probably know how much I love to pickle things. I was just telling a friend you can pickle - with vinegar - or you can ferment - with salt - for similar delicious effect. The latter has digestive benefits and I love to do that, but when I need that pop of sour flavor quickly, I whip up quick pickles that are ready in as little as a day or two. I've Pickled Blueberries , Pickled Asparagus , Pickled Cranberries , Pickled Pumpkin , and even Pickled Chard Stems ! This I did last night for an upcoming recipe challenge that requires I include radishes. Ummmm...of course I'm pickling them! Ingredients  makes 1 quart jar radishes, trimmed and sliced organic red onions, peeled and thinly sliced (I used a mandolin slicer) 3/4 C vinegar (I used white distilled vinegar) 3/4 C water 3 T organic granulated sugar 1 T salt (I used some grey sea salt) 6 to 8 grinds of black pepper Proce

    Hot Chocolate Agasajo-Style {Spice It Up!}

    photo by D For my Spice It Up! kiddos this week, I was looking for an exotic drink to serve while we learned about saffron. I found a recipe from food historian Maricel Presilla that mimicked traditional Spanish hot chocolate from the 17th century where it was served at lavish receptions called agasajos . When I teach, I don't always get to shoot photos. Thankfully, D grabbed my camera and snapped a few. Ingredients serves 14-16 1 gallon organic whole milk 3 T dried rosebuds - or 2 t rosewater 2 t saffron threads, lightly crushed 3 T ground cinnamon 3 whole tepin chiles, crushed 2 vanilla beans, split lengthwise 1 C organic granulated sugar 1 lb. bittersweet chocolate Procedure In a large soup pot that can hold a gallon plus, combine milk, dried rosebuds (or rosewater, if you are using that), saffron threads, ground cinnamon, chiles, vanilla beans, and sugar and warm over medium heat till it steams.

    Jamaican Stew Peas #EattheWorld

      Here we are at November #EattheWorld event. What a year this has been! This challenge has been one that gave us some excuse for virtual travel as we've been sheltered-in-place with the coronavirus epidemic for most of 2020. So, we've been able to read about different parts of the world and create a dinner, or at least a dish, with that cuisine. This Eat the World project is spearheaded by Evelyne of  CulturEatz . Read more about  her challenge . This month, Evelyne had us heading to somewhere tropical: Jamaica. I have actually been to Jamaica, but it was almost thirty years ago...and it was just a jumping off point for the rest of our Caribbean exploration. I don't remember eating anything at all!
