Mini Maple Chocolate Chip Pancake Muffins-Baked!

No Comments 30 April 2010

Pancakes are a must at a brunch, but I hate being the one in the kitchen doing all the flipping, while everyone else is having fun and eating. There is the option of making pancakes in advance and freezing them, but its just not the same as when they come out fresh.  So I  found this great recipe for mini maple pancake muffins on Bakerella.com

Generously grease a 24 cup mini muffin pan with non-stick spray.    

Ingredients

1 cup flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons sugar
2/3 cup buttermilk
1 egg
2 tablespoons pure maple syrup
2 tablespoons melted butter
1/2 cup milk chocolate chips

 

Directions

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Combine flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt and sugar in a medium bowl. Sift together with a wire whisk.
  • In another bowl, stir buttermilk, egg, maple syrup and melted butter until just combined.
  • Add wet ingredients to dry ingredients and stir with a spoon until combined.
  • Stir in chocolate chips. Reserve a few chips to sprinkle on the tops.
  • Bake for 8-9 minutes.

Makes 24 mini pancake muffins.

Let cool slightly and remove from the pan. You may need to use a toothpick around the edges to separate the pancake muffins from the pan.
Serve  with maple syrup.

These books are meant to inspire all Jewish women.  Perfect as a gift on Mother’s Day , Shabbat, Birthday,or just to say that you care.

 

Fifty Jewish Women Who Changed the World

Whether born in the ghetto or into lives of privilege, Jewish women throughout history have overcome prejudice and persecution by the power of their intellect and courage. And what a difference they have made. In this inspiring volume, the histories of fifty Jewish women come vividly alive in text and pictures.

Angels Don’t Leave Footprints

Rabbi Twerski shows us all how to see the inner good that is obscured by the debris of everyday life. Angels do their job and move on without leaving a mark, but human beings stumble and scrape their knees — and wonder if they can get anything right. They absolutely can — and this book proves it!

Shabbat Shalom Hug for Mom

Shabbat Shalom Hug for Mom

No Comments 30 April 2010

Shabbat Shalom
Your Peace of the Week
by: Marissa Anteby

You deserve a hug for all the things you do for so many people. You may be surprised when I tell you who the best person is to give you this hug. It’s you! There’s no better time to get your hug, than right now. Good, bad, or indifferent, this week is coming to a close. It’s only hours away from being over. How about throwing the whole week behind you and allowing this Shabbat to be the start of something new. Can you envision it? Really experiencing each new moment as it comes, without the added narration of past disappointments or projections and fears of what may happen in the future? I say, let’s go for it. Let’s take the leap of faith together.  Release your grip on old patterns of behavior. If you think about it, you’ll agree, those habits aren’t benefiting you anyway.

Here’s a simple Mind/Body exercise you can do to clear out your subconscious cobwebs and stagnant energy:

1-  Stand tall, with your feet hip distance apart.
2-  Give yourself a big hug.
3-  Inhale, as you open your arms as wide as you can, throwing your arms behind you.
4-  Exhale, as you close your arms, embracing yourself once again.
5-  Repeat #2 thru #4, for a cycle of 8 repetitions.

For a bigger lift to your spirits, add the following variations:

1-  Go as slow as you can, with your arm movements and breathing.
2-  Turn your head to the right as you inhale.
3-  Turn your head to the left as you exhale.

If you’re feeling really brave, you might try adding some words to your movements:

1-  Say the word “big,” as you open your arms.
2-  Say the word “thanks,” as you close your arms.
3-  Giving yourself, “big thanks!”

You can even mix and match the variations or make up your own. Just remember to always be gentle with yourself. The object is to show a little appreciation to yourself, not get stressed out. After all, even though we never take the time to do it, thanking ourselves for all that we do, may be the most important gift of gratitude.

As always, scroll all the way down to post your comments. I really enjoy reading them, and 1 lucky winner will be chosen from people who comment, to win a FREE Thai Yoga Massage from www.embodyinc.com

Shabbat Shalom,
