I Like Brekkist

That’s how my nephews pronounced “Breakfast” when they were small.  I like it.  “Brekkist” has a brightness to it, and a nice way of rolling out of the mouth early in the morning.  So, Brekkist it is, here in my two kitchens.

I’m not much for sweets early in the morning.  Mr. Dewey, on the other hand, has a sweet tooth that could chew through Sugarloaf Mountain.  These pancakes suit us both.

Spelt-Oat Pancakes with Honey Pecan Butter Syrup

1 cup spelt flour
1 cup oat flour
1/4 cup flax meal
3 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
2 eggs
1 3/4 cups buttermilk
1 tsp vanilla

Combine the dry stuff in one bowl.  Combine the moist stuff in another bowl.  Pour one bowl of stuff into the other bowl of stuff and combine.  I use a 1/4-cup measure to scoop out the batter onto a hot griddle.  Flip the cakes when bubbles form around the edges.  I keep mine warm on a cookie sheet in the oven until they are all ready.

Honey Pecan Butter Syrup

1 cup honey.
4 T unsalted butter
1/4 cup pecan pieces

Put the honey, butter and pecans into a heavy saucepan.  Bring it to a nice gentle boil.  Watch that it doesn’t spill over.  What a mess.  And a waste of good ingredients.  And use local honey, if at all possible.  Local honey is good.  I haven’t required an allergy pill all summer.  That’s amazing.
