Crème brûlée french toasts
Filed under the very large category of Things Pretty Much Every New Yorker Already Knew About But Was News To Me (don’t bother trying to hail a cab after noon on a Friday, filthy stoops are irresistible for the chill-minded set, etc.), the City Bakery on 18th Street has some astoundingly good French toast on Sunday mornings. It’s also astoundingly expensive, as things will go at a bakery with sweets like you can’t find anywhere else and an iron grip on its original recipes. Their version is a ridiculously thick wedge of battered bread with a caramelized lid that requires no syrup or other accompaniment — well, except maybe some crispy salty strips of bacon — to make it sing. Of course, I’m not trying to make their French toast, I would leave that to their expertise. The snafu me and my poor little middle fingertip — leading to countless, “Look what I hurt today!” Crème Brûlée French Toasts Makes 6 servings Topping 2/3 cup granulated sugar Preheat oven to 325.

pumpkin bread pudding Here is a recipe that every single person should have in their arsenal, and I couldn’t be happier that it is now in mine. After a week of flan that never set and floppy, leaky quiche crusts, there are no words for the serenity brought on by a recipe with TWO steps. Heck, the entire set of instructions tops out around 50 words. It was so easy that despite being at my wit’s end after Tuesday night’s fiasco, I made it anyway. Burrowing our spoons into still warm, bourbon-spiked (like I could resist) sweet fall comfort was heavenly, and as I chewed on those buttery bread cubes and pondered the ginger’s edginess, memories of cooking failures fell away, and there was just this, a blissful and eerily wholesome calm. There is utter genius is combining two of life’s great pleasures, baked French toast and pumpkin pie, into something you could as easily eat for dessert as a decadent brunch side dish.

The Brownie That Will Change Your Life Let me start off by saying that viewer discretion is advised for today’s post.

French Toast Recipe Is there nothing better than French toast for Sunday breakfast? Thick slices of bread, soaked in a mixture of beaten eggs with milk and cinnamon, toasted in a frying pan, and served with butter and maple syrup, this has to be one of our favorite, and most indulgent, breakfast dishes. French toast comes out best if you work with thick slices of French or Italian loaf bread that are several days old. That way they’ve had a chance to firm up, which will make the slices hold up better when you dip them in the egg milk mixture and fry them. Thin slices of fresh bread tend to fall apart or get mushy when you do this. Many people like to sprinkle powdered sugar over their French toast. One of my favorite variations, the idea for which I picked up from The Silver Palate Cookbook 20 some odd years ago, is to add some orange zest, and a bit of Triple Sec orange liqueur to the batter for extra zing. From the recipe archive. Ingredients Optional Method Hello!

The chocolate malted frosting is absolutely delightful. Related Posts:

cinnamon toast french toast + book preview Guys, I wrote a cookbook. When I was 32 weeks pregnant in the summer of 2009 (in fact, this was overflowing on my kitchen counter during my first meeting across town) and should have been doing normal third trimester things like eating jars of Peanutella by the spoonful and repainting the baseboard trim (which still looks awful, not that this will surprise you), I instead decided that I really wanted to write a cookbook. Because new mothers are swimming in free time (“new babies are always sleeping!”), I thought I would finish the book in six months; nine, tops. Stop laughing. Quit it. Two and three-quarter years later, the “baby” is 2 1/2, I am the proud owner of 2 1/2 gray hairs and, oh, right: The book is done. First, this above? The book has a back cover too. There’s so much more. And as of today, the book is officially available for preorder from just about every online seller: Amazon | Barnes & Noble | Books-A-Million | Indiebound | Powell’sOther U.S.

Millionaire's Shortbread Since one half of the blue-eyed baking squad is currently blogging from waaaay across the pond in London, we figured we'd bake you lovely duckies a British treat. Shortbread. Millionaire's shortbread (ooooh aaaah). Don't get too excited. There's no money in this crumbly deliciousness. Right. So there's shortbread, which is rather tasty on its own, and v v British. Just go with it. And THEN to transform it into Millionaire's Shortbread (ooooh ahhhh), you slather the aforementioned crumbly deliciousness in caramel and chocolate. We know. It's ok, just go slow, eat some melted chocolate along the way to keep your strength up, and you'll do just fine. And then, you can have as many pieces of the crumbly deliciousness slathered in the caramel and the chocolate as you want. We totally hit the jackpot. Millionaire's Shortbread Print Recipe For the shortbread:1/2 pound unsalted butter, softened 3/4 teaspoon salt 1/3 cup sugar 2 cups flour 1/2 cup plus 1 1/2 tablespoons cornstarch Next, make the caramel.
