Bread Pudding French Toast

Bread Pudding French Toast

I have never had a problem with having leftover bread pudding and being at a loss for what to do with it. I eat it – plain and simple. That being said, you can never have too many ideas to make eating those leftovers a little bit more interesting, even when you start off with bread pudding that is perfectly good in its leftover state ...

Coconut Cream Pie Oatmeal

Coconut Cream Pie Oatmeal

The colder the weather gets, the more appealing the idea of starting the day with something warming is, and nothing is quite as warm and satisfying as a hot bowl of oatmeal (hot coffee is a year round staple, naturally). Maple syrup or brown sugar are all I really need to make a bowl of oatmeal perfectly enjoyable, but when I have the chance I ... Read More »

Coffee Cake Pancakes

Coffee Cake Streusel

A good streusel topping is hard to resist. It’s one of the things that makes coffee cakes so popular, and can turn a good muffin into a great one – or at least turn it into one that looks a little more decadent. I’m sure that this is what IHOP was banking on when they introduced some “limited time only” Coffee Cake Pancakes to their ... Read More »

Belgian Waffles

There are waffles, and then there are Belgian waffles. A regular waffle can run through a range of possible flavors and textures – from light and crispy, to hearty and filling – and can be any of a variety of shapes, according to the type of waffle iron that you own. A Belgian waffle is always light and it is always made in a deep ... Read More »

Passion Fruit Curd

Passion fruit, also sometimes written as passionfruit, is one of the best smelling fruits out there. Ripe fruit has a stong, sweet, floral scent that just makes you feel as though you’re somewhere tropical. More often than not, the passion fruits sold in US markets are a bit on the dry side, so I’m always thrilled when I can get my hands on some fresh, ... Read More »

French Toast and Bacon Sandwich

French Toast and Bacon Sandwich

There are many out there who would argue that a good weekend breakfast isn’t complete without a side of bacon. Vegans, I think, would disagree, although there is an argument to be made here for soy bacon, too.  Eggs and bacon, waffles and bacon, pancakes and bacon, french toast and bacon, bacon and bacon… This breakfast treat goes a step beyond a side of bacon ...

Sugar Donut Muffins

Sugar Donut Muffins

While a donut with white frosting and a generous topping of rainbow sprinkles was never turned down, sugar donuts were always my favorite when I was a kid. I liked the subtle crunch of all that extra sugar on top of a light, fluffy donut. They’re still a top choice for me now, although I think they’ve lost their top ranking to plain, old-fashioned cake ... Read More »

Buttermilk Aebleskiver

Aebleskiver pan

Aebleskiver, or ebelskiver, are small spherical pancakes. They’re traditionally Danish, but the pancakes have been enjoying an upswing in popularity lately and are a little more common now than they once were. The pancakes are often filled with fruit or jam, rather than being served with syrup. You might not see the real name associated with recipes for these little treats, though, as some stores ...
