Emilie from Scarborough Food Fair is our Day 6. After following yet another gorgeous photo on Pinterest, I found sweet Emilie and her lovely blog. Her recipes are unique and her images are beautiful. If I had to pick only six recipes to share, I guess I would have to settle on the Caprese Bruschetta, Blackberry Lemon Gin Fizz, Mediterranean Baked Tomatoes, Oreo Cake or the S’mores Cake or the Lemon Raspberry Cake. Here is Homemade for the Holidays with Emilie.
Hello lovely people of This Heart of Mine! I’m so excited to be here with a guest post today. Especially because it’s about my favorite thing…
I’ve always been a lover of breakfast. No matter the hour of day or time of year…I need my breakfast. And if I’m deprived…you should probably steer clear.
I’m usually a light and savory type of breakfast girl. But I completely understand the glory that comes from switching it up every once in a while. It’s a special occasion type of thing. Like when my mom makes her world famous waffles. Or when the holidays roll around. That’s the time when you need a big gooey cinnamon roll or a stack of pancakes and a steaming cup of coffee to get into the holiday spirit. Nothing kills that spirit like an egg white omelet stuffed with vegetables. (Even though I’m on the egg white omelet boat 360 days a year.)
‘Tis the season – Might as well eat cake for breakfast. Right? Right.
Just as I’m not usually on the sweets for breakfast bandwagon, I’m typically not on the eggnog bandwagon. But I will admit, I love the flavor.
And that’s why this breakfast “cake” knocks it out of the park. It’s sweet. But not too sweet. The flavor of eggnog is there but you don’t feel like you’re drinking a big glass of heavy cream. The whole wheat flour gives it a boost in the texture department, and justifies the whole sweetness thing. It’s quite perfect.
I recommend whipping this little gem up for an early morning family gathering. Or maybe a mid afternoon nibble. But of course it would also do as a late night snack. I don’t want to limit you, you know.
Either way, you’ll be the hit of the season.
And of course a big thank you goes out to Amy for inviting me to be a part of this series! Happy Holidays!
Thanks Emilie! Nothing says holiday more than cake for breakfast and this one looks mouth-wateringly delicious.
