If you are not staying at Ormsby Hill this weekend and want to treat your mom to breakfast in bed, what could be better than recipes from Ormsby Hill to make your mom feel special like the person she is.
Below are recipes for honey-baked bananas and baked pancakes. You will be the star of the day (in second place after your mom, of course!).
Honey-Baked Bananas with Pecan Crumble
4 firm ripe bananas, peeled
½ cup orange juice
¼ cup honey
2 tablespoons plus ¾ cup light-brown sugar
½ cup all-purpose flour
½ cup oatmeal
½ teaspoon nutmeg
½ cup chopped pecans
6 tablespoons cold, unsalted, butter, cut into 1” pieces
Slice bananas lengthwise and place cut side up in a buttered baking dish. In a small bowl mix well the orange juice, honey and 2 tablespoons light brown sugar with a wire whisk. Pour over the bananas. Combine the flour, oatmeal, remaining brown sugar, nutmeg and pecans. Add butter, and using a pastry blender, blend until combined. Spoon the crumble topping over the bananas.
Bake at 375 degrees for 15-20 minutes and serve warm drizzled with a little heavy cream.
1 cup milk
1¼ cups flour
3 tablespoons butter, melted and cooled
½ teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon sugar
Preheat oven to 450 degrees.
Whisk the eggs with the milk until well blended. Add the flour, salt and sugar and whisk well. Add the melted butter (just before baking) and whisk until it disappears in the batter.
Spray pans with pam and pour batter into the pans.
Bake for 15-18 minutes until puffed and golden.
Serve immediately, with lemon zest, squirt of lemon juice, and sprinkled with conf sugar.
Maple syrup on the side.
