Dessert for breakfast? Or breakfast for dessert? Whatever your preference this vegan French toast will keep you happy. I’m not vegan and I’m still a big fan because it’s a little bit lighter than the traditional variety, the bread gets crisp and it’s lightly flavoured with the natural sweetness of the vanilla and cinnamon it’s soaked in.
I love meals that you can eat any time of the day, take minimal effort and are relatively cheap to make! This is one of those meals. I’ve had it for lunch, dinner and brunch (so basically breakfast) and it’s perfectly satisfying every time! This also means I’ve sort of posted two brunch recipes this week… everyone loves brunch though right?
Waffle Wednesday is back!!! Mostly because I felt like it was time for another waffle recipe! These are excellent for brunch or you can make them a little smaller and have them as a dessert. They’re gluten free and have a great texture too!
I don’t usually post on a Saturday but today I’ve got something a little special for you: an exciting announcement and an easy recipe for how to make cafe worthy avocado toast at home. The recipe is mostly about how to plate this simple breakfast to make it look like it’s worth at least $18, because apparently that’s what we spend on brunch in Melbourne and why so many of us can’t afford to adult. Apparently.
It’s Mother’s Day on Sunday and for many of you that might mean brunch. My own mum has vetoed the idea and opted for dinner but I might see if my sister wants brunch because I feel like it’s just a good option for any Sunday. Who’s with me? This dish translates to broken eggs and it can be eaten any time of the day you like, the first time I ate it was for dinner;) However if your mum is all about the savoury breakfast his will be a winner and it’s a breeze to make!
This is a killer breakfast that combines so many of my favourite things. Waffles? Tick. Nacho style layering? Tick. Zucchini fritters? Tick. Plus they’re topped with a herby yoghurt sauce, fried eggs and avocado. It doesn’t get much yummier. These waffle breakfast nachos are a fun way to serve breakfast to a group of people, we don’t eat share food at breakfast often enough, I say.
Going out for brunch is great, but making it at home is better (sometimes). Primarily because you don’t have to get dressed. And if you’re feeling super indulgent you can just go right back to bed after. What could be better? Okay, someone else in your house hold making these. Email them the list. Go on, ain’t got no time to be subtle.
I love going out for brunch and one of my favourite things on any brunch menu is fritters. Especially corn ones! But so often they are deep fried and more batter than corn. These fritters are quick and easy, full of corn and gluten free. They also make a really easy to prep lunch idea.
If you don’t have a waffle maker then you are missing out on all sorts of deliciousness. These are filled with the nutrient dense sweet potato, gluten free and really yum so get involved already! Or be adventurous and try making them into pancakes.
Chocolate waffles that are light like a sponge cake inside with a crispy exterior, it’s like eating a little disk of chocolate sponge. This is my third waffles post. Is that ridiculous? I just really loves waffles… and not just waffles themselves but the waffle maker too. It just makes the best toasted sandwiches… I need to experiment with more food types in the waffle maker. But back to waffles. Waffles and chocolate. Chocolate waffles. These are gluten and refined sugar free. They’re actually not that sweet at all but have a bitter chocolate flavour that works well with the slightly nutty buckwheat. As they are just a little sweet the flavours of the waffle are brilliant with fruit toppings and maple syrup.
