Happy Canada Day - Ohh Canada Breakfast


Crack egg in the cut-out and fry until its firm.


Eggs in Ameritte (French Toast) Basket

I never knew people eat eggs this way until I saw the movie "V for Vendetta".  The hero "V" served eggs in the basket for Natalie Portman's character Evey Hammond after saving her from the secret police.  I don't know the origin of eggie in the basket.  I assumed its British since "V for Vendetta" is set in London, England.  French toast known as "Ameritte" in France is of French origin.   Normally eggs in a basket is made with just plain buttered toast I changed it up and combined something French and something British together.  Canada's French and British history prompted me to make Eggie in ameritte Basket uniting two Canadian origin in one dish.  Thanks for viewing and please leave a comment.

Makes 4 toasts

For Ameritte:
2 eggs
1/4 cup milk
1 tablespoon sugar
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
4 texas toast
For Eggie in the Basket:
4 eggs
4 amerittes
maple leaf cookie cutter

To make ameritte custard beat together 2 eggs, sugar, cinnamon, and sugar in a bowl.  Dipped texas toast in the ameritte custard and fry in 1 tsp. oil until lightly browned.  Punch out with a maple leaf cookie cutter in the cooked ameritte.  Place the prepared ameritte in the hot pan and crack egg into the hole of the ameritte.  Cook on each side until eggs are firm.  Slather with unsalted butter and drizzle with Canadian Maple Syrup..  Enjoy and Happy Canada Day!

Minion Cupcake Cake

This is how I made my Ube (purple yam) Minion cupcake..  Enjoy! Come see how I made it in this youtube video.  Don't forget to subscribe for more updates! Used Wilton tip 1M to create the rose pattern on the cupcake.  Start pipping from middle cupcake and out. To create the eyes...  You will need 3 different sizes of round cookie cutter (3", 2.5, 1 inches, white fondant, grey fondant (goggle frame), light brown fondant (iris), and black fondant, large ball tool, and piping gel.  Cut out a 3" circle out of grey and white fondant.  Set aside in large ziplock bag.  Cut out a 2.5" circle in the middle of the grey circle.  This will be the frames for the minions goggles. With a small brush apply a small amount of water along the perimeter of the white circle.  Lay down the grey frames on top of the white circle.  Using a ball tool (See pic bellow) make an indent on the bottom centre of the white circle.  Place the brown 1" circle in the di

Pilipit - Filipino Twisted No Yeasts Donut

Pilipit is a Filipino style donut.  It has a crunchy outer shell and a soft inside.  It is similar to bannock or elephant ears.  These are similar to donuts and leavened with baking powder.  Traditionally coated with sugar or glazed I coated mine with powder sugar kind of like their elephant ears counter part.  But you know what they are perfect on their own without sugar.  The dough is sweet enough to hold on its own.   The ones that I made are for some reason soft on the inside.  I'm certain it's because I rested my dough for more than 30 minutes instead of the usual 15 minutes.  If you guys want more crunch in your pilipit just proof it (resting stage) for 15 minutes or less. Pilipit Ingredients: 2 eggs 1/4 cup sugar 1/4 teaspoon salt 1 teaspoon baking powder 1 tablespoon Vegetable oil 2 cups all purpose flour ( add a bit more if the mixture sticks to your hand) 3 tablespoon of milk ( add more if final mixture is dr
