Saturday mornings are usually a bit frenetic at my house, which I know is the complete opposite of other people who are crazy busy every weekday morning getting their kids/husbands/themselves out the door. I work from home mostly so I don’t have that weekday rush, but somehow Saturday turns into the one day when all must be done and by noon preferably. Today was different. I had earmarked the morning for some recipes that I felt like eating! No judgement, no dietary restrictions, not for a class or a project. Just for the pleasure of eating. And here is one of them. The other recipe is the Buttermilk Pikelets...which you should also try as they are perfect topped with this jam and some yoghurt, sour cream or whipped cream.
So pick a relaxed morning, and eat well! Happy Mixing.
