Photo Friday: Sunday breakfast – cinnamon pancakes

San Francisco; summer 2009


Our little house in San Francisco has a cute little garden with roses, a fucshia bush, a beautiful red cedar tree in the neighbouring garden and visiting squirrels and hummingbirds. It is the perfect place to sit on a Saturday or Sunday morning and enjoy home-cooked breakfast and freshly brewed coffee.

Scrambled eggs are always popular in our house but over the summer, these cinnamon pancakes have become a fixture on our weekend routine. The original recipe is on Sugarlaws and we haven’t made any alterations to either the ingredients or cooking method.

The best thing about it? I don’t actually make them myself. My darling husband likes to make breakfast on the weekends, which suits me just fine. I get to lie in bed longer. Once, when the weather was lousy, I even ate breakfast in bed. I adore that man!

(Don’t worry, I look after him in other ways).

  1. Will have to try that recipe soon….actually I will have my husband try it soon. I am also lucky to have a husband who does all of the pancakes in our house, too :) His specialty is chocolate chip pancakes. Love those blue and white dishes. Looks like a lovely spot for breakfast.

    Thanks for the comment. Choc-chip pancakes – yum! The patterned dishes are from Tunisia (we bought a whole set but many of them broke in the shipping, sadly). The blue-rimmed dishes and coffee cups are Denby and were wedding presents. – Caitlin.

  7. Hah! Too funny. I was planning to leave a note about your tasty-looking pancakes but since other people have left comments on your delph: I have the same set. My mom sent it to me for my birthday a couple of years ago. She decided that even though I was all grown up, I should have a ‘proper teaset’. So now I do.
