Pancakes with cranberries and fresh fighs |

One of the biggest advantages of having a stack of recipes that I still need to move from my old site to this one, is that I can safely give you some winning and delicious dishes while I am tramping through the jungle in far away places. πŸ™‚ I made these delicious little pancakes in 2012… I can’t even believe it was that long ago! I can still remember what they tasted like, believe it or not.

On that note; don’t you find it amazing how long a memory of a taste or smell can linger? The smell of cinnamon and bam, I am straight into christmas mode… πŸ˜‰ And to be honest, these pancakes kind of a similar effect on me. I loooove the small and the cinnamon and cardamom give you that hint of wintery goodness to come.

I also – very clearly – remember my frustration at the time I was making these. Nothing to do with the pancakes but everything to do with all my websites being down for the entire weekend due to some ‘inconvenience’ of my hosting at that time.

Their server was supposedly hacked but they never really told me what the issue was or why I was down with all sites and the frustration I had was running sky high… Do I even need to tell you that I have moved hosting in the meantime? They were cheap but crappy too. I now pay a premium price at WPEngine but I also have premium service and haven’t been down since moving there. Love them!

Pancakes with cranberries and figs

And because I was feeling very sorry for myself and because I couldn’t really do anything I had planned on doing, I made these little sweet darlings. I used Ratio by Michael Ruhlman to come up with the recipe. It’s maybe not spectacular but it;s good and perfect for autumn!

If you want them to be thinner, you can add a bit more milk or buttermilk. They were beautifully light anf fluffy and with a crunchy crust. Of course best enjoyed straight out of the pan but they’re ok once cooled down too. Lovely with some figs and honey!
