Rainy Saturday Morning Brunch with Nespresso

Morning brunch with Nespresso or how after receiving the last limited edition Nespresso capsules (Robusta Uganda & Arabica Ethiopia Harrar) I decided to make ourselves a nice brunch at home, because cloudy mornings and chilly air definitely call for warm cappuccinos and lattes.

I always make my signature dark chocolate and raspberry pizookie for a treat-yo-self  kinda moment. It’s my go-to recipe because it’s quick, warm and extra yum. Like who can honestly resist a hot cookie with oozing chocolate right out of the oven? Not me that’s for sure. I also chose to make pancakes because for me, brunch and pancakes go hand in hand. Like coffee and milk. Chocolate & caramel. My husband and I. Sorry I can’t help myself.

Fresh out of the oven

This is my pancake recipe, that give me those perfectly golden colored thin pancakes, so very soft and tender. But I recently felt like changing things up a little and wanted to go for thicker pancakes, although looking to keep the same kind of softness. After a little research I came up with a new version of the breakfast shining star (okay I’m biased, this blog isn’t called what it’s called for no reason), so for a dozen pancakes you’ll need :

Ingredients :

  • 1 egg
  • 35 cl milk
  • 3 tbsp melted butter
  • 1 tsp of baking soda (or baking powder)
  • 2 tbsp sugar
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 240 g flour

Recipe :

  • Whisk your egg with the milk and melted butter, add all your dry ingredients (previously combined together) and keep whisking. You can use a hand whisk or an electronic one, it doesn’t make much of a difference.
  • Heat up your pan and cook your pancakes practically a minute on each side (or less it depends on your pan).
  • After the 12 pancakes you’re done.
  • How easy was it?

To perfect your table, add in all the berries you can put your hand on – I found blueberries, raspberries, cherries and redcurrant so I’m pretty lucky; let’s not forget where I live – all the fruits you like, a cheese platter (because I like to go all the way), and probably anything you like, it is your Saturday morning brunch you just do you. I’m pretty mellow when it comes to coffee drinks, I don’t really do strong, so I went with the Arabica Ethiopia for my cappuccino, a rather fruity and flowery taste with some malty cereal notes. Velvet body, medium roast, perfect for my mild little taste buds. I used my folks’ Nespresso Gran Maestria machine for the occasion, it felt like my Citiz & Milk wasn’t exactly suitable for it. Sometimes I like stuff to be grand you know, for a brunch.

And I also always love to have people over at home, for no special occasion, besides gathering around a nice meal, or just a cup of coffee, tea, whatever they like, to enjoy each other’s presence and share a pleasant moment. You don’t need much to be happy; an afternoon treat, a little dinner, a festive brunch, all of it only serve to make for the petite joys. Celebrating les petits plaisirs de la vie.
