Sweet or Savoury at Breakfast time? Discuss.

Me, you ask? 100% savoury. I’ll pick up a breakfast menu, quickly scan it, then weigh up the savoury options. Bacon forever, pancakes never!

So how did I get to a Banoffee Dutch Baby when I am anti-sweet at breakfast time? I’m calling it Breakfast for Dessert. This traditional dutch pancake is meant for breakfast but I am going to make a gentle suggestion to stuff it with caramel and bananas and call is dessert, OK?

And for those of you all “what is a dutch baby?”, let me just tell you. It’s only the most delicious, puffy and crispy baked pancake. You could fill it with lemon and sugar, berries or plain old maple syrup. Just in case Banoffee is not your thing.

This pancake goes from the stove top to the oven, so a cast iron skillet is best. However, I’ve seen on pinterest that people make them in a glass pyrex dish. Lemme know if you try that method, OK?

    Oh yum! This looks so delicious that I would it eat for breakfast and/or lunch and/or dinner! So much yum! I am totes indecisive so I like sweet and savoury for brekkie (depending on my mood.) The “or” is very important because as much as I love sweet and savoury on their own, I don’t like them together. Ever. Just sayin’!

    I’m definitely savoury for breakfast and it needs to involve poached eggs. this…I could do for brunch…or dessert…or afternoon tea. Maybe second breakfast 🙂 You take the most awesome pics x

    I’m right there with you on the savory for breakfast thing! Avocado toasts all day every day. Actually, just toast in general is fine. But I might make an exception for this Banoffee Dutch Baby, it looks AMAZING!! 🙂
