Recipe Corner: Breakfast with maple

April 10th, 2014

By Ginger Isham

When we had a bed and breakfast, guests loved this recipe—a couple from Germany wanted them for every breakfast.

Baked Pancakes or Dutch Babies
4 eggs
3/4 cup milk
3/4 cup flour
pinch of salt
3 tablespoons melted butter
Whip eggs and milk together and stir in flour and salt. Pour batter into two lightly greased 8 or 9-inch round cake pans. Bake in 450-degree oven for 15 minutes.
Can dust with powdered sugar, and/or sliced strawberries/blueberries and serve with warmed maple syrup.

Oatmeal Pancakes
(from bed and breakfast guests from Canada)
2 cups oatmeal
2 cups buttermilk
Mix and soak overnight.
Next morning add:
2 beaten eggs
1/2 cup flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
2 tablespoons sugar
pinch of salt
4 tablespoons melted butter
Pour batter on griddle that has been lightly sprayed with oil. These take a little longer to cook than other pancakes. Hearty like oatmeal cookies. Could stir in dark chocolate chips or shaved chocolate.

A favorite fruit cup
Make the night before for guests: cut up grapefruit, oranges and cantaloupe. Drizzle maple syrup over all and serve in morning. Put in small bowl on a luncheon plate with real fall leaves underneath the bowl or with fresh spring flowers on the side or violets to decorate top of fruit.

    I am writing in response to Mr. Hoxworth’s article on transportation costs for the poor in Vermont. I would like to suggest further research on this topic before we simply just give another handout or tax credit. The poor, may, have a higher disproportionate burden on their transportation costs than the wealthier residents of Vermont; however, they also have a lower disproportionate burden on taxes and housing. Pick your evil.
    We can simply just give every poor Vermonter an energy efficient car, gas card, free tuition, renter’s rebate, etc.…but the only way out of poverty is through the combination of education, hard work, and discipline. Education and degrees are not handed out or purchased; a person has to EARN them. This seems to be the only way out of poverty—sorry, there are no shortcuts.
    If we continue this trend of enabling, our entire state will be a welfare state.
