Nigella Lawson. Upon discovering that Nigella had 12 versions of the same dress i
had been coveting from afar, I simply had to get one for myself and share my
journey with cyberworld.
Last week I discovered an amazing channel on UPC- its called the food network,
and guess what (cue drum roll).... they play reruns of nigella express twice a day.
Needless to say the dvris working overtime and my love of Nigella has
been rekindled. Here are some gems from the domestic goddess herself:
'I agree that to some people using half a kilo of chocolate to make 12 cookies may seem
excessive, but personnally i don't put a price on alleviating human suffering'
'Emmanating calm is hard work after all'
'generally i dislike all things skinny'
Here is a recipe for doughnut french toast that i have taken from http://www.nigella.com/. I will be
testing it out in her honour tomorrow
Doughnut French Toast
- 2 eggs
- 4 teaspoons vanilla extract
- 60ml full-fat milk
- 4 slices from a small white loaf or 2 slices from a large white loaf, each large slice cut in half
- 25g butter, plus a drop of flavourless oil for frying
- 50g caster sugar
- Beat the eggs with the milk and vanilla in a wide, shallow bowl.
- Soak the bread halves in the eggy mixture for 5 minutes a side.
- Heat the butter and oil in a frying pan, and fry the egg-soaked bread until golden and scorched in parts on both sides.
- Put the sugar on a plate and then dip the cooked bread in it until coated like a sugared doughnut.
