From recipes for a sumptuous Dutch Baby with Berries and Sour Cream to waffles laced with toasted pecans and drizzled with caramel, Pancakes Waffles mixes up favourite classics with a variety of light and hearty, sweet and zesty batters and fillings. These recipes will appeal to inexperienced cooks as well as first-timers looking for an easy-to-use guide. Also included are ideas for using pancakes and waffles beyond breakfast.
For those who hear ?pancake? and think ?buttermilk? or see ?waffle? and expect ?Belgian,? Pappas, the author of numerous cookbooks for Chronicle (including Biscotti, The Christmas Cookie Book and Crepes), offers dozens of new ways to think about such familiar favorites. She does include recipes for Classic Buttermilk Pancakes and Classic Buttermilk Waffles (the recipes, naturally, are quite similar), but she also suggests such deluxe fare as Cottage Cheese Pancakes with Blackberries and Sour Cream, Buckwheat Pancakes with Chevre, Salmon and Dill, and Triple Ginger Pancakes. Waffle options include Hazelnut-Orange Waffles, Five-Grain Fitness Waffles and Olive-Semolina Waffles. Pappas also provides recipes for a variety of syrups and toppings, from Flavored Butters, Blueberry Sauce and Sugar-Free Apple Spread to Tapenade and Sun-Dried Tomato Pesto. Pearson?s pastel, soft-focus photographs are highly appealing, as are Pappas?s recipe notes (?Nuggets of fresh pear and toasty almonds bejewel these crispy orange-scented waffles?). Add in clear directions and a clean layout, and you?ve got a little book that promises to break waffles and pancakes out of the breakfast box. (Apr.) Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.
