3 Easy Brunch Recipes

Friday, April 8, 2016
Brunch is by far my favourite combination meal, there's nothing I love more than having a little lie in over the weekend, waking up and enjoying brunch. I love going out for brunch too, but sometimes I feel lazy doing that so staying at home and making something is the easier option for me.

Here are my go to recipes:

Scrambled eggs on toast

(Double up the recipe for the amount of people you have)

What you will need:
Two eggs, salt and pepper, milk, two slices of bread of your choice.

Firstly, crack your two eggs into a bowl, add a pinch of salt for flavour and a dash of milk. When you've whipped these all together, heat up your frying pan with oil. Pour the mixture in and keep the heat to a low- medium. Now here's the technique- grab a wooden spatula and slowly fold in part of the mixture that looks cooked by dragging the edge of the spatula into the middle of the pan. Keep on doing that by bringing your eggs into the middle (per Jamie Oliver- this is the french scrambled egg method). Then you have perfect scrambled eggs that are a great balanced of cooked with that runny side. Toast up two slices of bread, add the eggs on top and your dash of pepper to serve.
Fluffy American Pancakes
(Makes two servings)

What you will need:
Self raising flour/ plain flour- then add a tablespoon of baking powder, one egg, a pinch of salt, milk- half a cup and fruit/ toppings of your choice

Measure out half a cup of flour (my cup was 500ml), half a cup of milk, and pour this into a bowl, crack in your egg and the pinch of salt, mix this all together. Heat up your frying pan (would recommend you use a non stick one) and carefully ladle up one portion into the middle of the frying pan. Put the frying pan on a low- medium heat and wait for little bubbles to form, flip them over and cook for a few mins. Decorate with your choice of fruit- I love fresh blueberries and raspberries with a drizzle of agave nectar.

French Toast with cinnamon sugar

(Double the ingredients for how many servings you need)

What you will need:
Two eggs, vanilla extract, milk, two pieces of stale bread, white sugar, cinnamon

Preferably, leave your bread out the night before for it to harden or toast your bread for a few minutes. Whip your two eggs, add in a dash of vanilla and a dash of milk. Pour your mixture onto a tray and soak in one slice of the bread at a time, making sure each side is fully covered. Heat up your non stick pan and add some oil, put your bread in the pan and cook it on a low- medium heat. Flip it over so the other side is done and repeat this with the other slice of bread. In a seperate bowl, add a teaspoon of white sugar and a teaspoon of cinnamon, mix this together. To serve, layer your slices of french toast together and delicately sprinkle your cinnamon sugar mix on top.

I also have to give a shout out to my other breakfast love- avocado on toast, sadly I have no photos of it but you literally mash one avocado and spread it on two slices of bread! The only difficult part is waiting for the avocado to perfectly ripen. Those avocado problems tho.

Hope you enjoy these easy recipes, and let me know what you love having for brunch!
