Pigs in Blankets


Mother’s Day Breakfast

Breakfast in bed is always a great treat. It gets even better when that breakfast consists of the fluffiest pancakes you have ever seen and a delicious cardamom infused orange juice. This post is dedicated to all the moms, but especially to mine, because she is the best in the whole world!

Fluffy Pancakes

Chocolate chips, varied fruit
2 eggs, lightly beaten
1/2 cup seltzer water
2 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. fine salt
1 1/4 tsp. sugar
1 cup yogurt
2 cups flour


Sift together the flour, sugar, and salt. Mix the yogurt and baking soda in a large bowl and let rest for 10 minutes. Beat the eggs and mix with the seltzer water. Mix egg, yogurt and flour mixtures and whisk until combined. Let the batter rest for 10 minutes.

Melt a couple teaspoons of butter in the microwave. Brush the bottom of a saucepan with the melted butter. Pipe the batter in a spiralling motion starting in the center of the pan and moving outward. Place the pan over medium heat. When the batter starts to bubble, you can add chocolate chips or the fruit of your choice. When the top of the pancake stars to dry, flip it and finish cooking.

Cardamom infused Orange Juice

5 cardamom berries
1 glass orange juice


Retrieve the seeds from the cardamom berries and place in the orange juice. Heat the mixture until it reaches 50 ºC (122 F). Cool, let infuse for a day and serve.
