Chocolate Pancakes with citrus orange curd, almonds and cream







I am back with another breakfast recipe and this time it’s almost like we had cake for breakfast! I was at the market and we found these beautiful oranges and I did not want to make a simple orange cake or a tart so I make the orange curd and decided we could have it for breakfast. I also make a Pavlova with it and it turned out really nice. Some day I will put the recipe up for the Pavlova. For not let me tell you that I have watched the seasons go by I love how the colours on the racks at the local markets change. Some times it full of green and yellow. Other times orange and red. Some times just green. And it’s just so wonderful how it translates to how the weather changes. These changes remind me of how fortunate I am to be able to do what I love doing with food. But next week for a change I shall not be cooking but I will be exploring food back in my village. There is going to loads of fish, home-grown organic veggies and many new places to visit! I can’t wait! Yes it is a road trip I haven’t done  road trip this long with my little one. While I am super excited I am also a little worried about how he will manage the whole thing. But I am sure it’s going to be fine. Hopefully I will be able to stay connected too.
