7. German Pancakes II

"INCREDIBLE recipe!" raves GWENEC. "Very impressive when you take out of the oven because it puffs up (it flattens after cutting/resting for a bit). SO much easier than pancakes! Sprinkled with powdered sugar after I removed from the oven. Would be lovely with fresh fruit!"

8. Waffles I

If you like, prep the batter ahead of time. It will keep in the fridge for several days -- and the flavor will only get better! "I love to make these waffles on Sunday mornings," says Michelle. "They are so quick, delicious and easy to make. They turn out perfect each time."
