Breakfast All Day by All Things Ami

i recently just met allyn through the winter recipe exchange that she hosted with pizelles, and i must say, she is a sweetheart!  she is a foodie just like me and every time i look at her blog, i’m always drooling over her fantastic food photography!  thanks allyn for kicking off the guest posts!


hello sandy a la mode readers!  it’s allyn of all things ami keeping you company while sandy is enjoying her winter vacay.  i want to thank her for the invitation to guest post on her inspired blog of fun, food, photo + craft.  food + photography seem to be universal common ground for many of us and it’s most certainly true of what sandy + i both enjoy.

today i am sharing with you one of my favorite breakfast recipes.  when considering what to mail for mine & brandi’s | pizzelles winter recipe exchange, i had one go-to dessert and one go-to breakfast item i wanted to share.  since i mailed away the dessert, i’m going to share my breakfast with you. honey whole wheat pancakes. i  add chocolate chips before flipping for my petite ami.s + serve maple syrup in a small container on the side.  the heart shaped cookie cutters and dusting of confectioner’s sugar make the breakfast feast even more special.  hope you like them!  happy holidays!


  • 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 cup whole-wheat flour
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 cup lowfat buttermilk
  • 1/2 cup nonfat milk
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract


In a medium bowl, whisk together the dry ingredients (flour through salt). In another medium bowl, beat together the eggs, nonfat milk, buttermilk, honey and vanilla.

Preheat a large nonstick griddle or skillet over a medium-low flame. Stir the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients, mixing only enough to combine them. The batter will be somewhat lumpy. Use a 1/3 cup measuring cup pour the batter onto the griddle or skillet. Flip the pancake when the top is bubbling and it is golden brown on the bottom.

    Ooh – thanks for sharing this recipe – I’ve starred it on my Google Reader.

    And I don’t think it’s complete without making them heart-shaped! I’m a firm believer that breakfast is meant to be eaten all day!!!

    I am a sucker for heart shaped food and it looks even sweeter in Nolan’s little hands.
