HI. I’m popping in on a Sunday AGAIN—whaaaat? I’m thinking Sunday posts might be a regular occurrence. They jive better with my schedule than Tuesday posts, so I’m thinking of making that change riiiiiight…now. Great, glad we got that out of the way.
Did you do anything fun last night? My family had a little get together to celebrate my grandparent’s 60th wedding anniversary. 60 years! That’s insane. The best part is that they still like each other—seriously, they’re so cute.
My family drove up from Ohio and we met at my grandparent’s church and then renewed their wedding vows, and afterward we went out to dinner. In conclusion, it was a really nice evening and I can only hope to make it to 60 years one day (except by that point I will be 85 and probably have a cane and possibly Alzheimer’s so.. )
Wow. This just got depressing. Let’s talk about food.
So. About these pancakes—they’re actually Paleo. Why? Because I love my Paleo Coconut Orange Pancakes so much that I decided to use it for these too. And because I was out of whole wheat flour. But mostly for reason #1. They’re not the prettiest-looking pancakes in the world, but they are delicious.
As much as I love the pancakes, I think it’s the caramelized figs that steal the show. I searched hi and low for fresh figs a few weeks ago and could not find them. Then, one day I was browsing Giant Eagle and BAM there they were. It was like they appeared out of nowhere. I’m telling you this because if you can’t find fresh figs at Whole Foods or Trader Joe’s, you probably hopefully will be able to at Giant Eagle.
Anyway, I bought the figs, took them home and covered them in sugar, because who doesn’t like fruit covered in sugar?
These pancakes are delicious by themselves but even better with the caramelized figs and even BETTER with the extra caramelized drizzle on top and EVEN BETTER with maple syrup. Make ‘em for your friends and nom away!
