How about this for a colourful breakfast idea : Baked sweet potato pancakes (Sweet potato Dutch baby pancakes) with an orange cranberry compote.
Peeps, we all know that sometimes there’s nothing better than pancakes right?
- They are baked pancakes, because, you know all that time NOT flipping pancakes you can spend doing other fun things right?
- They are baked sweet potato pancakes (Sweet potato Dutch baby pancakes). Because, well, they are baked sweet potato pancakes.
- You serve these nutmegy sweet potato pancakes with a gorgeous orange cranberry compote. Makes them fingerlicking amazingly good.
- You have this EEEEEEEEEVEEERYDAY for a week, and possibly even for Christmas supper, because it is that quick and easy to make and perfect for when you just want to relax and have fun.
- It gives you the excuse to test out your brand new ‘I foodie love you’ saute pan. More about that later.
This is super easy to make – pretty much bung your left over sweet potato puree (or pumpkin puree) along with everything else into the blender and whizz into a batter. Then transfer the batter to your preheated pan and bake away. The compote is also very easy to make and can be made ahead and stored in the fridge for a few days.
Peeps, please allow me to introduce you to my fab Christmas present the Circulon Ultimum saute pan. This high density forged saute pan comes with the promise that food will not stick, which I have found to be true and which is therefore totally awesome. Both cooking and washing up are suddenly much more fun. I love the fact that I am able to do a lot of oil free cooking in this pan, as I am trying to cook a little bit healthier.
To tell you a little bit more about it
The forged pan body – allows for excellent heat conduction, second only to copper.
It comes with a patented Ultra Total® Hi-Low Non-Stick system. Tick, tick, tick.
It has an edge to edge induction suitable base.
The reinforced pan base and rim give both fast and even heating.
It has an easy clean non-stick flush rivet design (seriously awesome).
It features a durable yet stylish cast stainless steel handle (so it can go in the oven no problem).
It is dishwasher safe, metal utensil safe and comes with a hassle free lifetime guarantee.
Peeps, I really like my perfectly sized Circulon Ultimum 24cm saute pan and I am lucky enough to have a few more items from the range.
I actually made both the orange cranberry compote and the baked sweet potato pancake in the saute pan as part of my rigourous testing of it and it worked like a charm. Oh happy, happy days.
