I’ve made lots of French toast but was never completely happy. I wanted to up my game. I decided to try a new recipe and it is decidedly better so here I am sharing it.
I spent a decent amount of time trying to look for this recipe on here. I thought I had written it up, but I guess I was thinking of when I redid the liege waffle recipe for the Chiplet, too.
Hence the pictures aren’t great since I thought I had already done this…but I hadn’t, so here it is. And what is it?
When we were in Maryland this summer, we ate at lots of breakfast places and had lots of pancakes, waffles, etc. Well, my favorite waffles were actually at IHOP! I really liked how they had a touch of sweetness, but were so so so fluffy. I figured someone must have duplicated the recipe, and I was shocked to find that I could dump everything in a blender to get tasty pancakes!
Ready for a large batch of muffins? These muffins made me think of apple pie in a muffin form. I was really disappointed because I mailed these to my dad and they got there super late. He was able to have them, but I doubt they were any good by then, or at least, it would be hard for him to decide if he wants them again, you know? Oh well. Because the recipe made so many, we were able to keep a few. They were so good!
I might have enjoyed these the most out of the people who shared them with me, but that’s ok. I enjoy oats in baked goods (even if I don’t enjoy them as oatmeal) and I know some people don’t. These bars can be made with lots of kinds of fruit, but at the time I made them, strawberries were amazing and perfect. You can even use jam if you want. I think next time I might try adding more fruit to see how it goes since there was a lot of dough in the dough to fruit ratio (for me).
Here is an easy meal you could make for any time of day. K and I like risotto, although it took some time to convince him. Risotto is tricky since it is similar to his childhood dish of congee but it is different enough that he wanted it to be more like congee. Finally we have figured out his ideal texture for it. I’m still trying to convince the Fudgelet to like it more. He eats it as he eats everything, but I want him to like it as much as we do. This was the first time he was more on board with it.
Are you tired of bread yet? I hope not. This is (maybe) the best bread I made with the brioche dough. We all loved it so much that I made it twice within a week. If you already have the dough ready, this is a super easy recipe. It’s a bit tricky to explain the braids, so look at the pictures, or also go back to my challah post where I did the same style of braids.
