If you grew up in Germany, there is a good chance you grew up with Nutella. In our house, we always stocked at least one glass of Nutella and it was a sweet & constant part of my childhood. I remember when I visited my grandmother after kindergarten, she would make me a bread roll with butter and Nutella while I was watching The Simpsons. 🙂
I am at home for the holidays and am enjoying the slow mornings and late breakfasts here at my mom’s house. One of these grey and gloomy mornings, I got up and felt like having a warm and indulgent breakfast, so I gathered a few ingredients and whipped up this gooey warm and creamy porridge.
If you’re still looking for a breakfast for Christmas, I have the perfect suggestion for you. These gingerbread pancakes are based on the first gingerbread pancake recipe I posted, but I topped them off with some fried cinnamon apples & pieces of gingerbread. They taste like Christmas on a plate! 🙂
This post is a little summary of what I eat on a weekend day at home. I don’t like spending most of my time in the kitchen, so everything is super simple & easy to make! Generally, breakfast is my favorite meal of the day, so I put the most effort into it. 🙂 Lunch & dinner on the weekends are usually salads or veggies.
If you are anything like me, you could eat oats every morning without getting tired of them. I don’t even need much variation – I am just looking forward to my chocolate oats from the moment I wake up.
As soon as the leaves start falling and the air is getting crisp, I start looking forward to pumpkin soup, mulled wine & gingerbread and cuddled up mornings with warm oatmeal in bed. Good thing I have the perfect recipe for that. 🙂
Sooo….pancakes. 🙂 If you have been following me on Instagram, you have had the pleasure of enjoying my pancake spam in the past few weeks. I basically use every free morning I get to make pancakes and have tried different variations every time!
Yup, this is basically a mini cake for one. Or baked oatmeal in a mug. Whatever you want to see it as, mugcakes are the perfect dessert or afternoon snack – easy and quick to make and super indulgent!
There was this one day when I thought to myself: I eat chocolate oatmeal almost every day. I love white chocolate. Why have I never tried white chocolate oats?!? So I made white chocolate oats. And they were every bit as heavenly and delicious as I imagined. No actually – they were soo much better!!
I can’t even put into words how happy I am to have found a solid vegan pancake recipe that actually works out every time. I am using the Gingerbread Pancake recipe and swapping the gingerbread spice with whatever I feel like that day.
