1/4 c. margarine or butter
1/4 c. brown sugar
1/3 c. pancake or maple syrup
Mix these together in pan over low heat until butter is melted. Pour into a 9-inch round cake pan or pie pan. Pancake mix for about 10 pancakes. 4-6 servings. Mix as directed on package. Spoon batter over syrup mixture. Bake at 375 degrees for about 20 minutes or until top springs back when touched. Invert onto serving plate. A favorite breakfast for when the kids have a "sleep-over."
- 1 1/2 cups water
- 1/2 cup amaranth
Combine water, the amaranth, and a pinch of salt in a small saucepan, bring to a boil, and then reduce the heat to a simmer. Cover and cook over low heat for 25 minutes or until the water is absorbed, about 15 minutes. Makes about 1 cups.
Variation with Mixed Tiny Grains: Mix teff, amaranth, and quinoa, the latter thoroughly rinsed, and cook as described.
