Thursday Tidbit...on Sunday

Hey all, Alix here (better late then never right?). I was racking my brain trying to decide what to post when I began day dreaming about the delicious brunch I had today...mmmm...

For you to fully appreciate the deliciousness of my breakfast you have to know a little back story...we've gone to Disney in January for a while now, in fact this was the first year we haven't been able to go due to budget and the girls starting in a new school. Well, I have been missing the mouse like crazy and all the fun the girls had when we'd go made the stress and exhaustion from the trip well worth it. One of my favorite things to do when we are there is to have breakfast at the Crystal Palace. The food there is amazing and Winnie the Pooh and friends were always a favorite of mine. If you have ever been there then you *have* to know about Pooh's Puffed French Toast, which is you ask me tastes more like a churro then french toast. It looks like this (picture courtesy of our 2007 trip)

Yeah, see what I mean? Anyway, guess what? I found a recipe that I can make at home which tastes very similar to the Disney version. And the best part? It's fat free. Okay, well it's not, but it doesn't matter it's soooo good you won't mind the extra 4 hours on the treadmill you'll spend working it off ;). Here is the recipe in case you are in the mood for yumminess beyond imagination...

What you'll need:
  • 2 whole eggs
  • 2-1/2 tbsp. sugar
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 2 cups milk
  • 1 cup flour
  • 2-1/2 tsp. baking powder
  • 12 slices bread, cut in half diagonally (I read somewhere Disney uses Challah bread, but I use regular old country white)
  • cinnamon sugar mix (4 tsp. cinnamon + 3/4 c. granulated sugar) <----you may want to make a little more then that I found I ran out.

What you do:

  • Mix eggs, sugar, salt, vanilla, and milk until blended.
  • Slowly add flour and baking powder, mix until smooth.
  • Dip bread in batter.
  • Fry in hot skillet with 1" oil until browned.
  • Drain on paper towels, and roll in sugar mix.
That's it! Eat and enjoy! It turned out fabulously, I wish I had taken a picture before it got gobbled up. Next time for sure! Let me know if you give it a try and if you do anything differently! I added sliced fresh strawberries and bananas on top and my dds put whipped cream on top. It would be extraordinary as a dessert too, with vanilla ice cream on top!
