You guys, the broccoli we talked about? It's not ready yet. It cooks a long time.* In the meantime, let's talk about birthdays. In Desmond's cake from last fall (seven layers!) And last summer, Felix's pumpkin pancakes were held together by yogurt frosting (soy yogurt + raw cashews + maple syrup -> Blend until smooth.) For Grandma, we made multigrain pancakes with layers of lightly sweetened yogurt and berries. To turn our basic pancake recipe multigrain, I used a cup of whole spelt flour, 1/4 cup of cornmeal, 1/2 cup of all purpose, and 1 cup of oats in place of the 2 cups of flour called for. I love birthdays and pancakes and watching my boys snuggled up against their grandma at breakfast. It's been a good day. *(Also, I'm not 100% happy with the recipe yet.
