Happy Birthday to me (helloooo 25!) and I’ve got some catching up to do!
For breakfast, I made my husband and omelets! They have a reputation for being somewhat challenging to flip and I have a reputation for being somewhat challenged with eggs, but I made it work!
This recipe and instructions were foolproof!
I only sprinkled cheddar cheese on my husband’s omelet, but for mine I added diced tomatoes and a mozzarella/cheddar cheese blend. Oh so yummy.
I didn’t know there were so many tricks to getting eggs just right and thanks to my girl Betty, there was virtually no way to mess it up.
Unfortunately, there’s no recipe for a basic omelet online, but there is an instructional video that can be found here.
Notice the mug in the photo. My husband knows what’s up. 😉
We had dinner that evening with several friends for my birthday, but after we got home I tried to make “Molten Chocolate Cakes.”
All I have to say is FAIL. I followed the recipe to a “T” and still ended up with burnt, gross, cakes! I think I’m just unlucky in the baking field.
Supposedly this is the cake most often served by restaurants since it’s so easy and universally liked, but I just couldn’t make it work!
One last recipe I tried out this weekend was what’s called a “Puffy Oven Pancake.”
The exact recipe wasn’t online, but I found a recipe for German Oven Pancakes that’s pretty darn close. That recipe is here.
The difference between that recipe and the one I made is that there are only 2 eggs needed, no sugar, and 1/2 tsp salt.
So really the only ingredients are:
- 1/2 cup flour
- 1/2 cup milk
- 2 tbs butter
- 2 eggs
- 1/2 tsp salt
I am usually terrible at making pancakes. I just can’t get the heat quite at the right temperature!
So my husband was a little skeptical when I told him I made pancakes for breakfast. This pancake was so light and fluffy. We ended up eating it with our hands. It did taste kind of eggy but I thought it was great.
Plus, it was really fun watching the sides of the pancake rise up about 6 inches out of the pie dish! The picture seriously does not do that height justice.
