Coconut flour pancake recipe

Winter has arrived in Melbourne, and it is COLD, REALLY COLD! And while coconut might not be  quintessentially winter, there is something about this coconut flour pancake recipe that seems perfect for a winter breakfast — enjoyed in my slippers and PJs, of course.

To be honest, I never order pancakes when we go out for breakfast. I’ll almost always choose something else — But for a quick and easy home cooked breakfast it’s hard to go past these fluffy coconut flour pancakes.

This recipe is a great example of a new twist on an old classic.  I don’t know much about its health benefits, coconut flour, but has a unique, nutty flavour making it perfect for pancakes. Fluffy, light, and slightly powdery they have a unmistakeable coconut flavour.

Your pancakes shouldn’t be too large as they can be difficult to flip as they are slightly more delicate than traditional pancakes. They cook quickly, so keep a close eye on them to make sure they don’t burn. Adding extra eggs in the batter help the pancakes hold together. We like to top our paleo coconut flour pancakes with fresh strawberries, banana, and a generous drizzle of maple syrup.

Tuscan Baked Beans Recipe

Last weekend Brooke and I decided it was time try a new cafe for breakfast and ventured out to Hawthorn, where we had a delicious breakfast at Who’s Harry? If you are in the area I would highly recommend stopping by – even just for a coffee. The staff were very friendly and the menu offers more than enough options to please many. While Brooke couldn’t look past the corn fritters and halloumi on the menu, I opted for poached eggs and toast with a side of house made baked beans. The baked beans were delicious! Packed full of Mediterranean flavour, they were the perfect accompaniment for a chilly morning.

The only problem for Brooke was she had a little food envy and the next morning was on a mission to make some homemade beans for breakfast. Now this recipe is not traditional baked beans, but the flavour was great given how quick it was to make!

Simply cook up some brown onion, celery and garlic together with a tin of whole tomatoes and some tomato paste. Crush the tomatoes slightly before adding in a few sprigs of fresh thyme and the beans. Simmer on a low heat for 10 minutes, trying not to stir too much as you don’t want to make the beans mushy. In the last minute throw in a handful of kale (or spinach) for a bit of colour. The kale will wilt within seconds.

Brooke plated her delicious Tuscan baked beans on some crusty Noisette sourdough with a few pieces of crispy prosciutto to top it off!

Spanish Baked Eggs

Over the last couple of years, Baked Eggs have become a popular item on many café menus. They are great brunch item and became a regular go to choice for Brooke during our current phase of always going out for breakfast on the weekends. Since getting into a regular pattern of going to the local markets, we tend not to eat out so often and either opt for bagels from The Holy Bagel Company or experiment with our own breakfast cook-ups. This weekend we made Spanish Baked Eggs which were delish! Using some home grown red capsicums we added some other key ingredients to give the dish a Spanish kick.

There are various ways to make baked eggs, however I am a fan of a tomato base which can easily be altered depending on the ingredients you have in the fridge. To make our recipe we simply sautéed some onion, capsicum and garlic together before adding a can of diced tomatoes and some thick tomato paste. To add some heat, we seasoned with red chilli flakes, smoked paprika and salt and pepper to taste. In the meantime we wilted some spinach while the sauce came to a light simmer. When the spinach is ready simply place the spinach in the bottom of your greased ramekins and top with the tomato base. Create a little well in the middle and crack the egg into the well. We baked our eggs in a moderate oven for around 12 minutes ensuring the whites were cooked and the yolk was still runny.

Serving with some crusty bread these Spanish baked eggs make for a perfect lazy Sunday brunch.
