Morning breakfast recipes
Updated: Aug 24, 2020
Hello everyone it's Rai and I am on my first day of doing my morning routine and let me tell you it was great!This routine gave me energy and excitement for the rest of the day, can't wait to do it tomorrow. On this post I want to share some of my favourite breakfast recipes. You be as creative as you like with breakfast like trying out a smoothie bowl but these are my top 3 breakfast recipes.
Rai's top 3 morning breakfast recipes-
1) Protein shake-You may have seen this on my last post as something I do before exercising and it really helps to give that energy while working out. My recipe is for a chocolate protein shake but you can not add the cocoa powder and use fresh fruit instead if you like.
2 tablespoons of protein powder
2 teaspoons honey
1 tablespoons cocoa powder
1 1/2 cup milk
1 teaspoon vanilla bean paste/ extract
Blend all the ingredients in a blender and serve in a glass
2)Pancake tray cake- I got this recipe from- https://www.theflavorbender.com/. This tray cake is perfect for simple and easy breakfasts that are also delicious. The best part is that no one has to stay next to the stove all the time making the pancakes, you can just bake it and enjoy having breakfast with your family.I topped my pancake tray cake with some yoghurt frosting and pumpkin pie spice- yumm!
3 tbsp butter melted
2 cups AP flour
1/3 cup confectioner's sugar
2/3 cup cornstarch
4 tsp baking powder
½ tsp kosher salt (heaped tsp) Use less if you're using regular salt
2 large eggs or 3 small eggs
2 cups buttermilk
1.5 tsp vanilla
5 tbsp butter melted
Line a sheet pan (about 18" x 13") with parchment paper and brush the bottom with 1 tbsp of butter (or more).
Preheat oven to 425°F.
Sift all the dry ingredients together into a large bowl.
Combine and eggs, buttermilk, vanilla and 5 tbsp melted butter in a jug and whisk to mix well.
Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and mix until just combined. Do not over-mix.
Scrape the batter into the prepared sheet pan, and then using an offset spatula, evenly spread the batter. Gently shake the sheet pan to make sure that the batter is evenly spread, but do not shake or knock the pan too hard (as this may deflate the batter).
Place the sheet pan in the center of your oven and bake for 5 - 7 minutes. Check at 5 minutes - the pancakes are done, if the center of the pancake is springy to the touch, and a toothpick inserted into the middle comes out clean.
Remove the pan from the oven and switch the oven to broil. Brush the surface of the pancake liberally with the remaining melted butter and place it back under the broiler for 1 - 2 minutes, rotating the sheet pan half way through, until the surface starts to turn a golden brown in color. DO NOT WALK AWAY FROM THE PANCAKES while they are under the broiler, as they can burn quickly!
Remove the sheet pan pancakes from the oven as soon as they turn golden brown.
Cut the pancakes (while they are hot) into 8 (large), or 12 (medium), or 16 (small) portions.
Serve while warm with maple syrup, or pancake syrup and other toppings.
3) Breakfast bruschetta- Breakfast bruschetta is perfect for quick and customisable breakfasts and instead of eggs you can just put some olive oil, cherry tomatoes and basil.
I got this amazing recipe from justataste.com.
8 (1-inch-thick) slices French bread
3 Tablespoons unsalted butter, divided
4 large eggs
1/4 cup whole milk
1 Tablespoon chopped fresh chives
1/8 teaspoon fresh black pepper
3/4 cup mashed avocado
1 cup diced tomatoes
Preheat oven to 400ºF. Melt 2 tablespoons of the butter and brush it on both cut sides of each slice of French bread. Arrange the bread slices on a baking sheet and bake for 5 minutes, then flip them and bake an additional 3 to 5 minutes until toasted. Remove the bread from the oven and set it aside. In a medium bowl, whisk together the eggs, milk, chives and pepper. Heat a medium nonstick sauté pan over medium-low heat. Add the remaining 1 tablespoon of the butter to the pan, and once it has melted, pour in the eggs. Cook the eggs, stirring as needed, until they’re scrambled to your desired consistency. Spread a portion of the mashed avocado on one side of each slice of toasted bread. Top the avocado with the scrambled eggs and garnish with the diced tomatoes.
I hope this post inspired you to make fun, creative and quick breakfast recipes every morning.
