Pancakes For 5

July 3, 2012

A Tuesday dose of pancakes for me, Karen, the baby, Pumpkin and the rubber snake. [ <—Just made another appearance!]

I made us Kodiak cakes with nectarines, blackberries, and coconut – and a freshly opened jar of TJs sunflower butter!

1 cup of mix made 6 cakes. I ate 3 and Karen ate 1! The baby only wanted to eat off of my plate, Pumpkin preferred tuna, and the snake slithered away before I could offer her a plate.

Overnight iced coffee on the side, which could have been stronger.

I am so sorry if you are reading this without electricity in your home. Wishing everyone the best.

I’ve been obsessed with putting blackberries on breakfast items lately – these look great!

I also feel for the MANY people without electricity! We know what it was like – experiencing outages for over 2 weeks when we were hit with Irene in August .. and that random snow storm – Al.. in October!

That’s such a cool tray! I love the color fade.

Overnight iced coffee is a great idea. I need to start doing that again – I used to do it and make protein frappuccinos. I like my super-strong too. Like gasoline. :)

Oh wow, call me naive and living under a rock up here in Canada, but I didn’t know so many people were without power down there. I’ll try to push some cool breezes down your way! ;) Have a great day Kath!

We’re so lucky to have power where I’m at because we’re right on the edge of one of the big areas without hete in Ohio. At least it’s not winter, but horrible that it’s during such a hot spell!

Pancakes…great idea! I will have to surprise my boys and nephews with a pancake breakfast! Just heard on the radio about all the power outages…we are experiencing high humidity and the wind is picking up with thunderstorms scheduled to hit sometime today. Definitely feel a storm brewing here!

i definitely have to use your idea and make my kodiak cakes with nectarines – that sounds so good!

Love my daily dose of iced coffee :)

those remind me of the pancakes my friend got a brunch this weekend, they put peaches and raspberries in the batter!

I almost had pancakes this morning, but settled for cereal instead. Yours look great!!!

I guess snakes do not like pancakes :)

This just reminded me that I haven’t have pancakes for breakfast in so long. They will definitely be on the menu this weekend.

Hi Kath, I would love to see a pancake recipe that didn’t come from a mix! as the one you use is not available where I live. Thanks!

16 KathEats July 3, 2012 at 9:30 am

I’m just a mix kinda girl – between Kodiak and Great Harvest. Kodiak is available online. There are tons of great pancake recipes around the blog world that aren’t from mixes though.

17 Becky July 3, 2012 at 9:38 am

The classic recipe from Joy of Cooking makes perfect pancakes for me every time (and we eat pancakes about once a week). Dead easy too. Mark Bittman’s pancake recipes are also really good I think.

18 Whitney July 5, 2012 at 7:47 am

Kodiak is available at Target stores now too! I think you can check which locations on their website! I was THRILLED to happen upon the mixes!

Hope all the people without power are okay! Glad it wasn’t during winter. But the heat could be a killer too, keep cool and hope the power comes back on soon! Sometimes when there is power outage here, the malls have generators and AC. The people could all go the malls to keep cool, is that the same for you guys?

Reply

20 KathEats July 3, 2012 at 9:30 am

Yeah, there are shelters set up – and I’d say most of the city has power (gym, malls, stores) now, but it’s the county that’s suffering – and apparently a lot of other states!

We’re hurting in the DC area!! Trees down everywhere.

TJ’s sunflower butter is the best – wish we had it in Canada!

Love Kodiak cakes.

You can’t beat them for a quick morning breakfast that feels super decadant! Glad to know baby is a fan :)

Enjoy your time with Karen!

Where’s Pumpkin?? I’m gonna need more pictures of her.

She was sleeping on the porch : )

Looks like a great breakfast. Sounds like Karen is a fun lady!

Love your summery tray!

I think I know what I love best about your blog… the fact that you surprise me with how you put you’re food together. You gear away from the traditional combinations, or add too them. Like instead of pancakes and syrup you put the butter on top. And the best part is it always sounds delicious. I find myself thinking, how come I can’t think of that!

I have been reading your blog for so long now but never commented. More than any other blog, you really set an example to just…EAT…and eat well. I can become so obsessed with my food and my weight but very slowly over time, you’ve inspired me to let go of rules & regulations and just eat good, healthy food. Considering where my head was, food-wise, this was no easy task!

Checking in on your blog each day makes me happy. :) Keep up the wonderful work!

And I love following Baby KERF too, as my baby sister is expecting her first and the 2 of you are due just about the same time!

Stay cool out there!

Freshly opened jars of any nut butter just start the day off perfectly!

those pancakes look amazing!

35 Lauren @ Oatmeal after Spinning July 3, 2012 at 6:21 pm

There were a ton of people (probably about 75% of the occupants!!) at the hotel I was staying at that were C’ville locals without power. They were calling themselves the “power outage refugees.” I even saw a dog that someone had brought with them! Man, I hope their power comes back on soon- how awful (not to mention- that hotel bill will add up!).
Oh- and Carter’s Mountain Orchard was closed- maybe because of no power? :(

36 KathEats July 3, 2012 at 7:36 pm

Awww. I think Carter’s was closed from fallen trees blocking the path – that’s what a friend told me

I just discovered the awesomeness of cold pressed coffee. Is that how you do your overnight iced coffee or do you brew it and chill it? The cold pressed is way less acidic and much more tummy friendly for me.

Reply

38 KathEats July 3, 2012 at 7:35 pm

Yup – I just soak the brew overnight and press in the AM

Reply

39 Julie July 3, 2012 at 8:34 pm

Mmmm…pancakes. Yup, those are on the menu for tomorrow morning with some fresh blueberries!

Looks delicious! Can you share the recipe for the pancakes? :)

This is perfect for breakfast! I love the plating, beautiful and very artistic.

Yummy breakfast!

43 Julia H. @ Going Gulia July 4, 2012 at 7:09 pm

I’m sure you’ve mentioned it in past posts, but where do you get Kodiak pancake mix? It sounds so good whenever I see you use it on here!

Reply

44 KathEats July 4, 2012 at 9:58 pm

I’ve bought it from OpenSky and from Kodiakcakes.com. I hear you can find it locally in stores now too – I believe at Target!

45 Lexi @ You, Me, & A World to See July 7, 2012 at 8:50 pm

Haha I’m definitely guilty of eating 6 pancakes all by myself. Pancake addict–guilty as charged :)
