Beignets for breakfast
One of my favourite breakfasts is zabaione which is eggs beaten with sugar and coffee. Just plain bread with coffee is always good. But if you spread some Nutella on the bread, it's even better. At a hotel near Cortona, we had the most amazing apricot torta, enjoyed with double cappuccinos. This morning I went all out and had beignets with cafe au lait dip. Found the recipe in the latest issue of Good Housekeeping. I have always wanted to try making these powdered fritters but never have because they are deep fried. Finally, a recipe for baked beignets and yes they are addictive and so good and the dip is yummy. Tomorrow morning, back to porridge.
