The Musette: Pain Perdu

French toast, known as French pain perdu in France, is one of the easiest (and cheapest) dessert dishes to make. And yet, it’s utterly scrumptious! Legend has is that it was 15th century French King Henry V who made it popular though its origins… Continue Reading “The Musette: Pain Perdu”

The Musette: Vegan Oaties

I’m forever making batches of oat-based bars for breakfast and/or fuel on our bike rides. I tend to regard the ingredients as being pretty interchangeable, depending on what I have in the cupboard. Ingredients (4 – 6 servings) 80g (1/3 cup) home-made nut butter,… Continue Reading “The Musette: Vegan Oaties”

The Musette: muffins

This is my trusty go-to recipe whenever I need to whip up a few (or more) muffins. It’s an incredibly forgiving recipe as the batter will last for 30 days in the fridge. Trust me, I’ve tried it and the last muffin is just… Continue Reading “The Musette: muffins”

The Musette: apple pie spiced porridge

I’m trying to wean my beloved away from his usual breakfast (yoghurt on granola, followed by marmalade on toast) and getting him to eat more oats and eggs, though not necessarily together!

Sourdough starter is easily made — all you need to do is whisk together some flour and water — and its benefits are many. Not only does it give baked goods, from breads to pancakes to waffles to muffins and everything in between, great… Continue Reading “The Musette: sourdough pancakes”

Holiday photos: day 26

My beloved was due back from his business trip late on Saturday evening. I was just about  to go out, having wrapped up reviewing the day’s stage for VeloVoices, when my phone rang. It was my beloved who had missed his connecting flight from… Continue Reading “Holiday photos: day 26”

Vegan Shrove Tuesday

Just because I can’t have dairy or eggs doesn’t mean I can’t have pancakes on Shrove Tuesday, or any other day for that matter. I woke up this morning to find it grey, overcast and wet, not what I ordered. So, after a quick… Continue Reading “Vegan Shrove Tuesday”

The Musette: Turmeric Oat Pancakes

My beloved and I generally go for longer rides at the week-end, calling for a more substantial pre-ride breakfast. I haven’t made him pancakes for a while but I recently found a recipe for Turmeric Pancakes. Yes, I know that doesn’t sound terribly inviting… Continue Reading “The Musette: Turmeric Oat Pancakes”
