Growing up, Sunday mornings meant waking up to pancakes or french toast. Sometimes I miss the wake up call of a sugary sweet breakfast waiting for me as I roll out of bed. Since I am now the “mama” in My house, I can’t just walk into the kitchen and grab a plate. I have to actually whip up the weekend treat first before digging in. Today was one of those mornings were the craving was greater than my fear of doing the dishes so I made these mini french toasts. This recipe can be used with regular challah or challah rolls. I had leftover rolls from shabs so I went with the mini version! My son was thrilled to dip his french toast into the syrup and my husband who doesn’t usually like sweet breakfasts, noshed on a few as well.
I’m married with a kid yet most Sunday mornings you will still find me at my moms eating breakfast.I’ll drop everything to run over and have a bite of her light and fluffy pancakes dripping with sweet syrup. Last winter my brother called me to let me know my mom was making her famous pancakes and I ran over. It was during a huge blizzard! I was still in my pjs when I got the call, thinking with the crazy weather I would be home all day. I threw on clothes, slipped into my rain boots and got there 10 minutes after he had called. One bite of those light and fluffy pancakes was worth every minute of walking in the freezing snow! These are so good, I don’t just have them in the A.M., last night I served them for dinner with fruit, chocolate chips and syrup. Breakfast for dinner doesn’t get any better than that!
