about brunches.

... bringing some happiness to your next lazy day breakfast or brunch.

Gordon Ramsay has this cookbook where he states that breakfast is the most challenging meal of the day, even for a chef. I can say I totally side with him. I usually wake up happy and full of energy, but even so, it's not like I'm jumping on air over running to the kitchen and start cooking right away. It's a bit hard for me to believe that anyone wakes up with this much energy. Plus, for some reason I don't quite understand, it makes me mostly desperate having to wait one hour for breakfast to be ready.

So one thing is for sure: if I am making you brunch... I really like you ;)

Made this for my Italian 'family'. It's so sad you're leaving, guys!

I must add that this is now my absolute favourite pancake recipe. I used to make them with baking soda, but this time I changed the recipe a bit and I'm pretty satisfied with how they turned out.





Panquecas Americanas II
- 2 chávenas de farinha
- 10g de fermento
- 4 colheres de sopa de açúcar
- 1/2 colher de chá de sal
- 1 + 1/2 chávena de buttermilk
- 125g de manteiga derretida
- baunilha (moída ou aroma)
- 2 ovos M

- mirtilhos, rodelas de cereja
- funfetti

1) Misturar a farinha, o fermento, o açúcar e o sal,
2) Bater as claras em castelo,
3) Bater o buttermilk, as gemas, a manteiga e a baunilha,
4) Incorporar os ingredientes líquidos nos sólidos sem bater demasiado; incorporar as claras com cuidado,
5) Deitar, à vez, uma colherada de massa numa frigideira antiaderente untada com óleo ou manteiga, deixando cozinhar bem de cada lado (a formação de bolhas na circunferência é sinal de que estão prontas para virar),
6) Opcionalmente, pressionar mirtilhos ou rodelas de cereja sobre a massa já na frigideira, ou misturar funfetti na massa antes de cozinhar.

American Pancakes II
- 2 cups flour
- 10g baking powder
- 4 tbsp sugar
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1 + 1/2 cup buttermilk
- 125g melted butter
- vanilla (grounded or aroma)
- 2 medium eggs

- blueberries, cherry slices
- funfetti

1) Mix flour, baking powder, sugar and salt,
2) Beat egg whites until stiff peaks form,
3) Beat buttermilk with egg yolks, butter and vanilla,
4) Mix liquid ingredients into the solid ones without over beating; carefully fold in egg whites,
5) Pour a big spoonful of batter on a greased non-sticking pan over medium-hot heat, let each side cook well (when bubbles form around the pancake it is ready to turn),
6) As an extra, push some blueberries or cherry slices into uncooked top of the pancake, or mix funfetti in the batter before cooking them.

    1. O açúcar ajuda a estabilizar a massa, a que as panquecas cresçam fofas e não sequem, mas talvez também resulte sem :)
