Peach Cinnamon Bagel French Toast

“When you wake up in the morning, Pooh,” said Piglet at last, “what’s the first thing you say to yourself?”

“What’s for breakfast?” said Pooh. “What do you say, Piglet?”

“I say, I wonder what’s going to happen exciting today?” said Piglet.

Pooh nodded thoughtfully. “It’s the same thing,” he said.”

My love language is breakfast at all times, and just like Pooh I like it on the sweet side. Preferably with a serving of warm, sweet and comforting french toast bake, like this Peach Cinnamon Bagel French Toast! Best thing about this dish is that thanks to the use of cinnamon raisin bagels it’s super easy to make, leaving you time to scroll through your favourite feed – or chase toddlers- whatever your morning routine is!

Also, you could do all the preparation the night before, and just pop it in the oven after waking up! Which makes for a perfect solution when hosting family or friends!

All you’ll need is:

  • 4 eggs
  • 4 cinnamon raisin bagels
  • 1 cup milk ( or 35% cream )
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla essence
  • 1 spoon brown sugar
  • 3 ripe peaches ( or frozen )
  • 1 cup blueberries ( optional)

Cut the bagels in fours and place them in the baking dish. Mix eggs with milk ( or if you want a truly decadent french bake go for cream!) , vanilla essence and sugar, and pour the mixture over the bagels. Press the bagels in to the mixture so they can soak in all of it. Meanwhile cut peaches in slices, and place them in between bagels. Add blueberries and bake on 350 F for around 35- 45 minutes.

Remember to serve your Peach Cinnamon Bagel French Toast still warm, and preferably on a lazy weekend morning while surrounded with friends and family! Enjoy

The best chocolate cinnamon mud cake

Chocolate cinnamon mud cake

Here is your next favourite dessert :chocolate cinnamon mud cake! It’s dense, it’s extremely chocolaty, it’s gooey and it has this lovely cinnamon touch to it. So next time you can’t decide if you should make a regular chocolate cake or a brownie (oh the tough choices we need to make!) this is exactly what you need.

I love to pair this kind of dense chocolaty goodness whit a simple layer of melted chocolate, that after cooling down cracks and crunches. But that’s me, if you prefer the regular chocolate icing then go for it!

Here’s what you’ll need:

1 cup melted butter
2 eggs
3/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup brown sugar
1 cup melted chocolate chips
1/4 cup milk

1 cup self-raising cake flour
1 tablespoon cinnamon
1/3 cup cacao

1/2 cup chocolate chips

Mix together butter, eggs, sugars, melted chocolate chips and milk. Then slowly add flour,cinnamon, and cacao. When all the ingredients are well mixed pour the batter in to your baking dish and bake on 350F for around 35 minutes ( to until the centre seems to be set)

Chocolate cinnamon mud cake

When it’s cooled down, melt your remaining 1/2 cup of chocolate chips, and spread over your cinnamon chocolate cake. And if you have kids add sprinkles! If you ask my daughter she’ll tell you that everything is better with sprinkles.

Enjoy with a glass of cold milk or coffee (yes, I had it for breakfast).
