Classic French Toast

French toast was definitely my most looked forward to breakfast growing up. I liked to sleep late, though, so my slices were always cold by the time I got down to breakfast. Not that it mattered to me, though. I would just pop them in the microwave. I always sprinkled them with lots of sugar instead of using syrup. I suppose it makes them a ... Read More »

Steel Cut Oats

I must admit that I don’t know if I would serve this at a brunch. It is something I am more likely to make for myself. Indeed, I have oatmeal very frequently for breakfast. Growing up, oatmeal was not one of my favorites. I didn’t dislike it, I just tended to make it when it was very cold or when I was sick. I didn’t ... Read More »

Sourdough Crumpets

If you keep a sourdough starter, like I do, you know that you have to throw out a bit every time you feed it – unless you bake a loaf every day. Usually I’ll just bite the bullet and toss the unfed starter, but sometimes I’ll try and do something with it. King Arthur has some great recipes, including one for making Sourdough Crumpets with ...

Lemon Scented Popovers

I like popovers. I like the way they’re crispy on the outside and custardy on the inside. They take almost no time to make and look impressive. I used this recipe from Epicurious and added 1 tbsp of lemon zest and 1 tsp vanilla. I think the lemon flavor would have been even more pronounced with a tablespoon of lemon juice, or a bit of ...

Sunday Brunch: Bill Granger’s Scrambled Eggs

If you have ever visited or read a review of bills in Sydney, Aus., chances are you are aware that Bill Granger produces exceptional scrambled eggs. They are incredibly light, fluffy and creamy. They also contain 1/3 cup of cream for 2 eggs. Now, I am so fortunate as to have had the eggs on a visit to bills and can assure you that it ... Read More »

Cinnamon Buns

Cinnamon Buns

As far as I can tell, the difference between a cinnamon roll and a cinnamon bun is that the latter has some sort of icing, while the former does not. I find this to be somewhat akin to the difference between cupcakes and muffins. While there are plenty of roll recipes, many bun recipes seem to be for “sticky buns”. Now I like a bit ...

Sunday Brunch: Plain Waffles

Despite the fact that this may not be the prettiest waffle, I rather like the way it turned out to be almost circular. I will, however, practice filling my waffle iron. Last time I posted about making waffles for breakfast, I based my recipe on one from America’s Test Kitchen, where I was assured by the testers that a thicker waffle batter produced waffles far ...

Sfogliatine con Crema di Mascarpone

This month’s Sugar High Friday theme was puff pastry, hosted by Clement at A La Cuisine!. I have to admit that it put me in a bit of a tight spot. When I am looking to make something sweet, I tend to shy away from things that seem to be already put together (read: puff pastry, I’m just trying to phrase it nicely). To me, ... Read More »
