Little mini $%%$#@ pancakes!!!

So, my parents sent me my first poffertjes pan.  Having grown up eating them every weekend and watching my father tirelessly cook them as well as being a father myself and making my own pancakes, my thought was, “how hard can this be?” Turns out, pretty hard. The first step when making poffertjes is to learn how …

Slow cook oatmeal

Here we go.  No Crockpot blog is complete until you have done slow cook oatmeal.  It seems to be the staple for breakfast.  The pot is set.  The alarm is ready for 11:00PM (7 hours of cooking) and we should be good to go.  Seeing as I have no idea what a “flax seed” is we are skipping that (seriously, who has flax seed laying around their house?)  The rest is dump and heat:


  • 2 apples, peeled, cored, cut into ½-inch pieces (2-½ to 3 cups chopped)
  • 1-½ cups fat-free milk
  • 1-½ cups water
  • 1 cup uncooked steel-cut oats
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1-½ tablespoons butter, cut into 5-6 pieces (optional)
  • ½ teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 tablespoon ground flax seed
  • ¼ teaspoon salt

“COOK”(sic) for 7 hours

stay tuned….
