hard working cook, lazy blogger
Writing a blog is hard work. Ever so often I find my self cooking away or even clicking away but never get the patience to blog about any of it.
I’m going to be reall-ly busy the next one month, it’s Ramadan plus I will be studying like a crazy nut (or at least I should be!) for all the damned exams that I have to give. I’m quite addicted to social networking and useless browsing so I might even unplug my Internet for the month (yikes!)
So I’m scheduling a couple of posts. hopefully you wont miss me too much
Ohh here’s the Cinnamon french toast with poached caramel flavoured apples that I turned out the other day. Ok Ok so I couldn’t resist. I took a bite before I could click the pic, trust me- you would do the same.
Cinnamon toast + poached apple
What you need:
for the french toast:
2 slices of white bread
1/2 tsp cinnamon powder
2 tsp sugar
1/8 tsp salt
1/4 cup cold milk
For the poached apples
1 red apple; peeled, cored and sliced(whichever type)
1 small cinnamon stick
3 tbs sugar
1 cup water
1/2 tsp lemon juice
What to do:
1. Make the poached apples. Caramelize 3tbs of sugar in a saucepan and pour a cup of water once caramelized. Reduce heat.
2. Put the lemon juice, cinnamon and apple slices in the saucepan and cook covered for 15 minutes till done.
3. Make the french toast. Beat eggs, cinnamon, sugar, salt and milk. Dip slices of bread and fry in a non stick pan till golden brown on both sides.
4. Serve both together. Pour some of the caramel liquid over the apples and the toast. YUM!
I sat down on my pretty little (new!) carpet to enjoy this massive breakfast. ahh soft soft carpet.
