I took a home made waffle out of the freezer. Then made some caramel sauce with butter, brown sugar, and white corn syrup. Boiled it. Added a bit of vanilla. Then toasted the waffle, topped it with a scoop of ice cream, and poured warm caramel sauce over the top. (The harder/longer you boil the caramel sauce, the harder it gets when it hits the ice cream)
Yes, it was good.
2 cups Nabisco 100% Bran (I used store brand bran flakes, didn't have Nabisco)
2 cups boiling water
Pour boiling water over the bran, let sit while getting other ingredients ready.
1 cup sugar
1 cup vegetable oil
4 cups buttermilk
1 (generous) tsp. vanilla
Mix well. Add the wet bran mixture.
Then sift together:
3 cups white whole wheat flour
2 cups all purpose flour
5 tsp. soda
2 tsp salt
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp allspice
1/2 tsp nutmeg
Add the dry mixture to the wet. Add
4 cups Kelloggs All Bran (the stuff looks like long pellet rabbit food)
Mix well, and put into a large plastic tub (I have a square Rubbermaid one) and put in the fridge. You can scoop and bake as needed.
I made them up in advance, using mini-muffin tins, no papers, sprayed the non-stick pans with oil. Then put them in the oven 350F for about 25 minutes. It makes 8 dozen mini-muffins.

As for the eggs, well, duh. Eggs, a small splash of milk, pepper, salt. Scramble.

These are also known as German pancakes. very easy.... preheat the oven (425F) and cast iron pan. In a bowl, whisk together 2 eggs, 1/2 cup flour, 1/2 cup milk, a pinch of salt and sugar.
Put a couple of tablespoons of butter into the hot pan, when melted, pour the batter into the pan. Put back into the oven for about 15 minutes, until puffy and golden.
Serve immediately with syrup or jam.

This is a topping I made for a pizza today. I sliced a sweet onion.
