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!

    Caulibits Crni Rižoto (Croatian Black "Risotto") #Whole30

    Last week, I participated in the Wine Pairing Weekend event 'New Year, New Wine." I paired Crni Rižoto with Dingac Vinarija’s Pelješac...and you can read my post: here . I was pouring a Croatian wine and decided to make a traditional Croatian dish. Every seafood restaurant in Croatia has a  Crni Rižoto  (black risotto) on its menu.  Crni Rižoto  is risotto dyed black with squid ink; I used cuttlefish ink for the same effect. However, since arborio rice is not Whole30 compliant, I made a version for myself that used caulibits instead of rice. Ingredients 1 C fish stock (or a combination of fish stock and vegetable stock) 1 T olive oil 1 medium shallots, peeled and minced 1 cloves garlic, crushed and minced 1/4 lb shrimp 1/4 lb squid tubes, cleaned and sliced into rings 1/4 lb scallops 1/4 lb clams, scrubbed 1/4 lb mussels, scrubbed 4 C caulibits, or chopped cauliflower 1 T fresh parsley, minced juice and zest from 1 organic lemon 1 t cuttlefish ink

    This month the French Winophiles group is looking at affordable wines from Burgundy.  Host Cindy of Grape Experiences wrote: "Burgundy, or Bourgogne, is known for its wines of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir... as well as Aligote, Gamay, Sauvignon, César, Pinot Beurot, Sacy, Melon in lesser quantities. Many of the well-known wines are quite expensive, but there are plenty of values to be found." Read her invitation here. And there won't be a Twitter chat for this event, so you will have to dive into the articles themselves to read about our pairings and findings. Here's the line-up...
