German Pancakes

 I have wanted to make and try German pancakes for a while now and finally an image I saw on Pinterest pushed me over the edge (I swear that site has made me craft and cook so much). My son and I are ecstatic about Breakfast food as it is. I made some sautéed apples out of some fresh green apples I had on hand for a topping and also served powdered sugar and maple syrup so everyone could choose their own topping. This was the most delicious and filling recipe in fact it’s so filling you do not need any other dishes to serve alongside. Please remember that you must beat the eggs as noted so they mixture is airy and puffs up and browns on the edges, this is a must for this recipe.

6 eggs
1/2 cup sugar
1 cup flour
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1 cup milk
1/2 cup butter
1/2 teaspoon salt

1. Pre-heat oven to 350F. In an 11×13 baking dish add butter and allow to melt in oven.

2. In a mixing bowl add eggs and with a hand mixer beat until frothy for 2 minutes. Carefully add flour, milk, sugar, vanilla and salt, mix well.

3. Remove pan from oven and increase temperature to 400F. Pour mixture into pan and bake for 20-25 minutes.

Yields: 6 servings

Arabian Coffees

 

 

I first found out about Arabian Coffees on Pinterest. From there I went to their website and was interested to try their coffees. When you visit the site you can see they have several coffees that are prominent to certain areas in the Arabia. I wanted to try the Riyadh blend and after only a week my coffee was in my home, fast delivery. I was surprised to see the blend was indeed true to Riyadh and filled with lightly roasted coffee and broken cardamom pods.

I had never thought to use the entire cardamom as they have done and was mad at myself for never thinking of this idea myself. Here in Saudi we use cardamom and have it ground especially for coffee (the kind for cooking is ground too fine to use for coffee). One of the team members had told me that I would be able to use this coffee in a french press if I desired so I really wanted to try it out.

I just used a 1 cup of hot water per 1 tablespoon of the Riyadh blend then allowed it to sit for 4 minutes like I would any other coffee and wow was I ever surprised. I have to admit that this is the best Saudi qahwa I have ever tried and also the easiest. I plan to turn my family onto this blend and I know they will be as sold as I am. So if you’re looking for the most perfect tasting and easy to make Saudi qahwa then this is for you.
