With Valentine's Day just around the corner (it's a Sunday this year!), what could be better than treating yourself and maybe someone special to a delicious breakfast in bed? And apart from Valentine's Day, whether it's celebrating a birthday, a holiday, a lazy Sunday, or just want to show someone you care - stack your tray with these favorites for the ultimate breakfast in bed.
All recipes and quantities are for 2 people.
- Preheat a waffle iron on medium-high.
- Preheat the oven to 200 degrees (so that the finished waffles stay warm).
- Mix flour, sugar, baking powder and salt in a large bowl.
- Mix milk, butter and eggs in another bowl.
- Pour the milk mixture into the flour mixture, stirring gently until incorporated (it's okay if there are a few lumps).
- Lightly brush the top and bottom of the waffle iron with butter.
- Fill the waffle iron about 3/4 full (there should still be some waffle iron showing).
- Gently close the lid and cook the waffles until golden and crispy (6 to 7 minutes).
- Keep the baked waffles warm in the oven or covered with foil on a plate while you prepare the remaining waffles.
- Serve with maple syrup, butter, sugar or fruit jam.
2 cups flour
2 tablespoons of granulated sugar
1 tablespoon baking powder
1 teaspoon fine salt
1/2 cup milk
4 tablespoons melted unsalted butter (a little extra for brushing the waffle iron)
Butter pancakes are made in 10 minutes.
- In a small bowl, mix together the flour, baking powder, sugar and salt.
- In a separate bowl, mix together the milk, egg and butter.
- Mix the contents of both bowls together.
- Heat the pan on the stove and grease it with butter.
- Pour 1/4 cup pancake mix into pan.
- Turn pancakes when bubbles form (1-2 minutes).
1 cup flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 tablespoon of sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup of milk
2 tablespoons unsalted butter (a little extra for the pan)
Why dutifully eat oatmeal when you can also have an indulgent granola? As a rule of thumb, add 1/2 cup of rolled oats and 1 tablespoon of grains to 1 cup of liquid (milk, Greek yogurt, or fruit juice).
- Place in a bowl or glass jar and leave in the fridge overnight.
- Then, in the morning, add whatever toppings you desire.
Our favorite toppings:
- Banana with flaked almonds and chopped dark chocolate with a spoonful of crème fraîche.
- A handful of fresh berries, chia and a dash of vanilla extract
- Chopped apples, pecans and a large sprinkling of mixed spices
- There are endless variations depending on your taste and what's in your pantry.
Cinnamon rolls baked overnight
Kanelbullen are the epitome of the Swedish way of life: easy to make, easy to eat and an incomparable taste. The buns are best eaten warm, with some fresh cream and fruit to enhance the flavor. You can buy them straight from the supermarket, but a real Swedish bun has less stickiness and a lot more flavor.
Just follow this recipe : http://kanelbullensdag.se/en/recipe/ and in step four wrap your baking sheet in cling film and let them rise in the fridge overnight.
Then bake them in the morning for 7 minutes et voilà the cinnamon rolls are ready.
