Breakfast of Champions

Another Sunday Brunch success! Molly once again was my breakfast-making partner-in-crime. As usual, we couldn't stop at just one new recipe. We brought out the retro waffle iron, and made Lemon Corn Waffles with a Blueberry Sauce. These turned out far superior to the pumpkin variety, and the cornmeal really helped them to crisp up. We left out the soy yogurt, but the soy milk/arrowroot substitution seemed to work out alright. (Why pay $1.99 to use 1/4 cup?) They just crunchy enough, and not overly sweet, so the blueberry topping was a perfect match.

The next round was Chocolate-Chocolate Chip Pancakes. Another Vegan pancake gold. I'm starting to wonder why people put milk and eggs in pancakes, because these were awesome. Just the right amount of sweetness with the chocolate chips, so you didn't feel like you were eating dessert instead of breakfast. The recipe was a little runny, so we added some extra flour to thicken it up. Otherwise, it was a breeze!

Add in Mango Mimosas and 20 lovely guests, plus another giant spread of deliciousness... and it was a wonderful Sunday afternoon. And it left everyone wanting to know when our next brunch would be!
