Frühstück (pron. frooshtook) means breakfast in German. Good word.
It’s a simple recipe because that’s what we do here: simple and yummy 🙂 And this is the grocery list:
- 3 eggs
- 3 small cups of brown sugar (small cups like espresso cups)
- 1 small cup of milk
- 3.5 small cups of flour
- 1 small cup of oil (veggie, corn, sunflower – any yellow with a neutral taste)
- 1/4 teaspoon of bicarbonate of soda or baking powder. Whichever you have. I used soda for these pictured.
- About a handful of cherries. I put 2 in each cup so it was 24 in total. You can use other fruits, too: raspberries, blackberries, pineapple (yummy), apricot etc.
Mix all the ingredients, adding one by one and starting with eggs – and following the list. Make sure the sugar is dissolved. Beat it some more adding the milk.
Bake at 220 C for 10 minutes, then lower to 200 C and bake for another 10-15 minutes. Not all ovens are the same so just see that the color is nice and golden.
This is nice in the summer because it’s light and fluffy, and it’s perfect for the winter because the oven warms up the house and the sweet smell warms up the senses – so enjoy whatever the season!
