Starting the day off right!!

Everyone loves a good breakfast. Here are some Sunday morning goodies that I have created while experimenting in my kitchen.

Vanilla French Toast

2 eggs - slightly beaten
2 tbsp sugar
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp vanilla
1 cup milk
2 tbsp butter
8 slices Rudi's gluten free bread

Combine eggs, sugar, vanilla, and cinnamon. Stir in milk. Heat butter in skillet. Dip bread slices one at a time, coat well. Drain excess. Place in skillet. Cook 3 minutes, medium heat each side or until browned. Enjoy with hot butter or maple syrup.

Orange Buttermilk Pancakes:

2 1/4 Gluten Free flour ( I suggest chickpea, tapioca, or 'sweet' sorghum flour)
3 tbsp sugar
1 tbsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
2 tsp orange zest (http://www.bbc.co.uk/food/get_cooking/techniques/032001.shtml for directions on how to get the zest from an orange)
1 cup orange juice
1 cup buttermilk ( If you don't have any, you can always had 1 tbsp of lemon juice to a cup of regular milk for the same effect of buttermilk.)
1 egg, lightly beaten
2 tbsp cooking oil

Combine flour and other dry ingredients, including orange peel, in a large bowl. In a medium bowl combine the remaining wet ingredients. Stir the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients in the large bowl. Stir until combined but still lumpy. Heat lightly greased griddle or skillet over medium heat. Pour pancake batter onto skillet/griddle according to your desired size. I personally prefer a silver dollar size pancake. Cook til golden. Flip pancake when the top bubbles.

Finally there is my favorite breakfast recipe:

Apple Cinnamon Vanilla Waffles

3 eggs (Beat well )
1 1/2 cup buttermilk
1 tsp baking soda
1 3/4 cup gluten free flour
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 cup oil
1 Gala Apple (finely chopped)
1 tbsp cinnamon
2 tsp vanilla

Plug in waffle iron. Beat eggs well in a large bowl. Add your buttermilk into the eggs. Stir well. Next, add the remaining ingredients. Beat batter until smooth. The batter will be thin. Pour by the cupful into your preheated waffle iron. Makes anywhere from 6 to 12 waffles depending on the size of your waffle iron. Enjoy with maple syrup.
