I recently had my birthday and a dear friend of mine gave me a charming little life guide over pancake breakfast. In it many nice suggestions, which can be read with a wink. After that, we want to have a game of Poker en ligne Suisse. One piece of advice is that you should save one word from extinction as a good resolution for the new year. At first I was a bit puzzled, but had to realize that this is not such a stupid thought.
Because if you think about it for a while it is true that many words are threatened by death through forgetting or have already been forgotten. All you have to do is poking around in your own past. Some of them have surely already disappeared from the dictionary on the quiet. Certainly also because things are no longer part of everyday life, such as the “dial” or the “test pattern”.

After a longer time of thinking I came up with the following, maybe you know one or the other word: Heiermann (5-mark coin), Fräulein (without words), Hasenfuß (overanxious person), Haudegen (combative, assertive person), Gossip (gossipy woman), Quack (doctor or pharmacist), calling (call), Freudenpracht (visibly great joy), Gabelfrühstück (rich, second breakfast – today brunch).
SAVE WORDS AND PANCAKES
Anyway, I think the idea of rescuing a forgotten word and putting it back into language is great. Also to see if it will settle again with family and friends. An experiment, so to speak. I have decided to “ring the bell” and against “fork breakfast”. Although the word is a great transition to my recipe for classic pancakes.
CLASSIC PANCAKES – MY BASIC RECIPE WITHOUT SUGAR
Because classic pancakes, as I prepare them, are ideal for breakfast or brunch, as my basic recipe contains no sugar. So you can cover it with savoury ingredients or with sweet ones. You can even vary the dough with spices of any kind. By the way, I’ve been wanting to put my pancake recipe on the blog for a long time. My son loves my pancakes very much and this way I want to save the recipe from being forgotten. Because if he had his way, he could have pancakes for breakfast, lunch and dinner – hm, actually that would make things a lot easier for me.
MY TIP TO YOU – THE PANCAKE BATTER ALWAYS NEEDS SOME REST
There are probably as many pancake recipes as there are words. Hopefully they all have in common that you let the pancake batter rest. The components don’t mix within seconds, so the batter should be left in the fridge for about 10 to 30 minutes, so that it becomes stable. But don’t be so strict, sometimes 5 minutes are enough if there is no time.
Oh and one more piece of advice from me. I know many people use butter for frying, but I personally don’t think butter is optimal. It burns much too fast and for my feeling the look suffers more than the brown butter taste adds. But that is like everything – pure taste.
If you got even more of a taste for pancakes, try my sweet classic apple pancake or my crispy and uncomplicated oven pancake, a pancake fun you don’t have to stand at the stove for.
BROWNIES WITH CINNAMON-COCOA-FROSTING
As soon as the word brownies, he goes into raptures – my son. Brownies are way ahead of macarons on the popularity scale, and he could probably not only literally put himself in a mountain of brownies. Of course, I am also one of those mothers who love to put a smile on their child’s face. That’s why I set out to find the ultimate brownies recipe.
And I don’t have to search very long! My new Brownies recipe is based on the recipe of a dear neighbor, which is ahead of its reputation because it is equally popular with all neighbor mothers and especially their children.
HOW I GOT THE BROWNIES WITH COCOA-CINNAMON-FROSTING
I changed the basic dough a little bit, increased the chocolate content a little bit and used a little less baking powder (by the way, many Bownies recipes lack baking powder completely) and screwed it a little bit here and there. I was also very tempted to give the brownies a pre-Christmas touch. I decided to use a cinnamon-cocoa-frosty, because the cinnamon taste belongs to this time for me.
THE FROSTING IS THE ICING ON THE CAKE
Frostings are also totally hip in the back scene right now, or already out again? I don’t know. Anyway, the cinnamon and cocoa frosting goes great with the brownies and after Christmas you can just leave it out. Oh and if you don’t like the “cinnamon” taste yet, my recommendation is to sprinkle some ground cinnamon on top.
