For this week’s All Day challenge I chose cinnamon. I have a great love for cinnamon as the smell reminds me of cold christmas days. I don’t like em, but the smell of good food, chocolate and cinnamon always keeps me feeling warm inside. As the days are getting colder outside, I therefore felt like I needed a good cinnamon boost to keep me feeling happy.
When I was younger, every Wednesday it was a food party at my sitters house. Wednesday the oldest son came back home to have dinner with the family, and therefore there was always something extra on the table. And that something extra was always ‘Frensh Toast’ or as we call it ‘Wentelteefjes’ (If you translate it literally it says ‘Turning bitches’, don’t ask..) Wentelteefjes are easily made so you will get the hang of it quickly.
- 2 eggs
- 200 ml of milk
- 2 tsp of cinnamon
Grab a bowl and add 200 ml of milk, 2 eggs and 2 tablespoons of cinnamon to it. Mix it all together.
Soak a piece of bread in the mix and bake it on both sides in a pan. When both sides are a little bit brown and the bread is not wet anymore, you can take it out and serve it on a plate.
When you’re done you can add any ingredient you like. Myself always love to put brown sugar on it. But if you want you can also add fruit or syrup.
I am a huge sweet tooth so for lunch I decided to cook something sweet again. It was something I had not tried before, but in the end it worked out great. So if you are bananas for something sweet like me, you should really try out this dish!
- 2 slices of puff pastry
- 1 banana
- 1 sachet with vanilla sugar
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- 1 tbsp of honey
- a shot of milk
- chocolate sauce
Pre-heat the oven on 175 C.
Defrost the pastry.
Peel banana and slice it in half (down the width)
Mix vanilla sugar and cinnamon on a plate
Role the bananas through the sugar and cinnamon mix and place it on the pastry puff.
Role the pastry around the banana. Mix the honey and milk and spread the mix on the pastry puff.
Place it in the oven for 20 minutes on 175 C.
Serve the pastry on a plate and pour the chocolate sauce over it.
Dinner was a bit more challenging as I am used to adding cinnamon to sweet dishes. However I found a way to incorporate the cinnamon to a dish without it being very present in taste.
- 3 tbsp of olive oil
- 1 tsp of cinnamon
- 1 tsp of brown sugar
- 1 pizza bottom
- 350 g of shoarma
- 1 mozzarella ball
- 350 g of snap beens
- 1 jar of tomato sauce
Heat the oil in a wok. Stir fry the snap beens for about 7 min. Add some salt to the snap beens.
Place the pizza in the oven for 7 minutes on 200 C.
