I finally got my hands on Ina Garten’s new book: Barefoot Contessa, Back to Basics. So far I am loving it. We haven’t had time to try a lot of the recipes, but I can just tell this one is a winner! I have already made a list of recipes to try and it is almost the entire book:)
We did make her Oven Berry Pancakes and they were fantastic! I love that these are individual pancakes. You make them in four, 6 to 7 inch, gratin dishes. We had all of the ingredients on hand, which I also loved. You can make these whenever you are in the mood for something special in the morning.
Ina uses orange zest in the pancakes, but we opted for lemon. I am sure both are tasty. The pancakes puff in the oven, which is my favorite part. They are so fun! We filled the pancakes with berries, but you could use any fruit or do the traditional syrup thing.
This is the perfect breakfast for company. You don’t have to stand over the griddle flipping hot cakes, you just put them in the oven and relax! They only take about 15 minutes to bake. Plus, everyone gets their own! I am sure your guests would feel extra special if they woke up to these pancakes!
