This weekend has been all about work, but yesterday I had some free time to actually prepare a good, hearty breakfast which we had in bed. Mozart decided to join us too, as he always does. Especially when there are pancakes.
Pancakes are his favorite thing in the world, except maybe bacon and cheese, but unfortunately he didn’t get to taste these ones as they had chocolate in them. I bet he’d love some bacon/cheese pancakes! Hmm, possibly for his birthday.
And guys, seriously, this bedding from By Mölle!! I must say this is the most beautiful bed linen I’ve ever seen, and the most comfortable too. Honestly, I don’t think I’ve ever slept more comfortably. Mozart completely agrees, and he’s quite picky 🙂
They also come in the most beautiful range of muted colors, I decided to go for almond for the duvet and hazelnut for the cushions, and an almond linen throw. I’ve had grey bedding for a while and I must say these give a warmth to the room, it’s way more inviting now.
As for these pancakes, they’re definitely perfect for an indulgent Saturday breakfast!
*This post was made in collaboration with By Mölle, but as always, all opinions are my own!
GLUTEN FREE CHOCOLATE CHIP PANCAKES
- 100 g (1 cup) almond flour
- 1/2 tsp. baking soda
- pinch of salt
- 1 tbsp. honey or maple syrup
- 1 large egg
- 1 large egg white
- 75-100 ml (5-7 tbsp.) water or milk of choice
- 30 g dark chocolate, chopped
- salted butter, for frying
- maple syrup, to serve
- In a medium bowl, whisk together the almond flour, baking soda and salt. Add honey, egg and egg white and stir until smooth.
- Add water or milk to the batter until consistency becomes a bit more runny, but still thick (you might need to add a little bit more to the bowl while you’re frying as the batter thickens). Stir in the chopped chocolate.
- Heat a nonstick skillet over medium heat. Grease with butter. Ladle a little less than 1/4 cup of batter for each pancake into the skillet and cook over medium-low heat for about two minutes, then flip the pancake and cook for about 1-2 minutes. Repeat with remaining batter. Serve with maple syrup.

This is lovely and funny. I was scrolling your blog post, too lazy to read at that moment, but now I must. Then I saw the letters on the wooden box. “Veiling De Tuinbouw Grootebroek” ❤
While I now live in Finland, my roots are Dutch. My father and grandfather where professional gardeners and brought their vegetables to the veiling (auction) in this kind of wooden boxes with horse and carriage. As a safe way to take me, when I was little I also was placed in such kind of box. There were al kind of sizes, for all different vegetables.
Grootebroek is the name of a village in the Netherlands and every vegetable- or fruits auction had there own name on the boxes.
The box in your pictures must be at least 50 years old. I think that they have changed to plastics in the 1980’s, also the auction system changed in that time. You brought warm and nice memories to me. ❤ Thank you!
Now I go read your post
Aww, what a lovely comment! Made me so happy. Thank you for sharing this beautiful story with me and I’m glad this post brought you such fond memories. I’m curious to know how these boxes ended up in a flower shop in my little town! I will treasure it even more now!! Too bad they exhanged them for plastic ones. Thanks again for leaving such a lovely comment! <3
I have a bitch westy too, it’s a very special breed. They are wonderful. And like your Mozart, she always wants to get close to my cakes 🙂
Lovely story…..Mozart is so insanely cute lol…Wanna cuddle him.He is sooo CUTE !!
Haha, I have to agree! He is so cuddly and cute <3 Such a special little boy. Thank you for you kind comment!
