Another easy, filling Brekkie

Trying to make the mornings easier, healthier and fast, on-the-go; with food that’s good on the table and in the system.

So this is Veron’s – googled, I think, off the net.

Almond milk, thinner as it is from regular dairy, and off a different non-milk white – ivory ? – doesn’t photograph as well, but it tastes far better. (That’s my take).

  • A couple of tablespoons of rolled or steel-cut oats, per person, soaked overnight in almond milk.
  • Transfer to a bowl, mix in a dash of honey (optional), more almond milk if required, and arrange sliced banana, pomegranate arils and blueberries.
  • Sprinkle cinnamon powder and chia seeds, enjoy.

Mango cubes, ripe and succulent, should make a great alternative / addition ?

Jen’s Upside-down Almond-Preserved Mandarin Cake

  • 100 gms butter

  1. Mix them well together, add some of the syrup from the preserve
  2. Add almond meal with baking powder (I did 3/4 cup almond meal n 1/4 cup flour)
  3. Pour in some grenadine or cointreau for good measure
  4. Beat the whites stiff, fold into batter
  5. In a loaf tin, (mine is approx 3.5″ x 8″) greased and dusted, (additionally, layer the bottom with grease paper – that prevents the oranges from burning) huddle the oranges at the bottom of the tin, pour in the batter and they will fill the gaps and hold the oranges together.
  6. Bake according to your oven, but mine was 200 deg till it rose, then 170 till it was done. Took about 55 minutes I think.
  7. When cooled, turn over so the oranges are on top.    

If serving as dessert, I think whipped cream would be great, but it was  good on its own and seemed right to have it while it was lukewarm.
