I have been developing this super simple, versatile little beast for many years now (well, since I left home and started tinkering with food stuffs in a way that was 'misunderstood' at my parents abode). The main ingredient of the breakfast cake (BC) in this particular example is muesli, but I have had good success with a number of other cereals.
Primarily I use the BC at times when I feel like cereal but have no milk, but I have also enjoyed it on many different occasion. The first time I made it for my partner she was very sceptical, but she soon came round, once she had seen the benefits. Namely, the BC is a food on the edge; skating between savoury and sweet - it and could go either way, depending on your choices of accompaniments. To make the 'base model' is very simple and quick, and does not require many ingredients.
Step 1: What you need
- Frying pan (any size will work)
- Bowl or jug to mix it
- Fork, spoon, or other, for mixing
- 1 Egg
- Another egg (2 in total - now that's luxury)
- A sprinkle of herbs de provence
- A few slices of cheddar cheese
- Several cloves of garlic.
- A selection of condiments
Extra ingredients I have used in the past with good results:
- Sliced tomato, fresh basil and mozzarella;
- Broccoli and mushroom;
- Peanut butter, tomato and spinach;
- For a sweet one mixing in chopped apple, banana or other fruit works well;
- Crushed cashew nuts and cinnamon;
- Milk - for a delightful creamy breakfast cake;
- dessicated coconut flakes, ground almonds and fresh ginger pieces;
