Hey all! We experimented with crepes this morning because we’re getting bored with scrambled eggs. It was easy and pretty quick to throw together. I paired it with a fresh mixed berry compote and all was well at the breakfast table again 😂😋😋
1 cup flour
1 1/2 tbsps sugar
1/4 tsp coarse salt
3 tbsps butter (melted)
1 1/2 cups milk
1. Put all ingredients in a blender for about 30 secs until smooth and bubbles appear on top
2. Let the batter sit for about 15 mins, then warm a 12″ pan over medium/low heat.
3. Add a little butter to the pan and pour about 1/3 cup of batter into the pan and swirl till it reaches the edges
4. Cook for 2-3 mins then gently flip and cook for another minute.
5. Roll the crepe onto a plate and serve with your favorite toppings.
We had a lot of berries so we made a mixed berry compote.
Lucky me! All of my bananas went soft and the skins were starting to turn brown and as I was about to throw them out my hubs ran into the kitchen in slow motion screaming “NOOOOO MAKE BANANA BREAD!!”… ok maybe it wasn’t that dramatic.
I really just wanted to lay in bed and finish dying from this flu, but I pulled out the old recipe book and whipped this up. It’s so good with a lot of butter * I also put cheese on mine, don’t judge me, I love cheese <3* Man am I glad I thought to make this 😉
- 1 1⁄4 cups sugar
- 1⁄2cup butter or 1⁄2 cupmargarine, softened
- 2 eggs
- 1 1⁄2 cups mashed very ripe bananas (3-4 medium)
- 1⁄2 cup buttermilk
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 2 1⁄2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1 cup chopped walnuts, if desired
- Heat oven to 350 degrees. Grease bottoms only of 2 (8X4 inch) loaf pans.
- In large bowl, mix sugar and butter. Add eggs, bananas, buttermilk and vanilla; beat with electric mixer on medium speed until smooth.
- Stir in flour, baking soda, salt and nuts (if using) just until moistened. Pour batter into pans.
- Bake for one hour or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool 10 minutes. Loosen sides of loaves from pans; remove from pans to cooling rack. Cool about 1 hour before slicing.
TIP : If you don’t have buttermilk, you can add 1 tbsp of lemon juice or white vinegar to 1 cup of milk and let it sit for 10 minutes before using in your recipe 🙂
I’m bringing this yummy warm bread toFiesta Friday, a party by Angie of the Novice Gardener. This week it’s co-hosted by the lovely Julianna @Foodie On Board and Hilda @Along The Grapevine
I spent most of the weekend in bed, dying from a cold and sinus infection *I know I’m so dramatic*, but I honestly thought that I had seen the light! Or maybe I had too much Dayquil. 😂
The hubs took care of the kids while I got some rest, which means that they had a bath outdoors in the sprinklers, ate pizza and corn dogs and ice cream and no vegetables, oh they just had the best weekend of their lives! Ha! The big bad mommy was away so the mice surely played!
I started feeling a little better on Saturday night, so I helped the Easter bunny fill some eggs and make baskets for the egg hunt. We hid the eggs including two golden eggs $$ 🐣 and then went to bed.
The munchkins were up at 7am and eager to see if the Easter bunny came, so I grabbed my camera and took the best pics I could with both eyes still closed 😂😷
After they found their baskets and eggs we had a huge waffle breakfast and then I started prepping for an afternoon BBQ *which I ruined because I couldn’t taste the salt in the food and then gave everyone hypertension LOL*, but they were good sports and ate the burgers that were drowning in salt 😂
Then we did and outdoor egg hunt and grandpa couldn’t keep his big mouth shut and kept telling the kids where the eggs were! So next year we’ll give him a basket since he wanted to play so bad 😂😂 There was also some wrestling, a bubble gun show down, hula hooping and candy tasting *I swear the kids wanted us to share their candy*. All in all everyone had a great time and we’re hoping to continue this tradition for years to come, but without the salty food! 😉
I hope you had an amazing Easter as well! 💜
