It's Easter time...which is one of our favorite times of year because that means we get to indulge in Easter Bun and Cheese! But of course we end up having more bun than we need, so I decided to test out a delicious recipe for breakfast using the leftovers. The result is this delicious Easter bun french toast!
For the Jamaican Spice Bun
INGREDIENTS -1 1/2 cups sugar -2 Tablespoons Cocomon coconut oil -2 teaspoons honey -1 teaspoon cinnamon
-1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
-1 teaspoon ginger -1 cup stout such as Guinness -3 cups flour -3 teaspoons baking powder -1/2 cup mixed candied fruit
-1/2 cup raisins -2 eggs
DIRECTIONS -Preheat oven to 375 degrees. -Heat sugar, coconut oil, honey, spices and stout over low heat so the sugar melts a bit. -In a seperate bowl, mix flour and baking powder. -Pour heated ingredients in the flour mixture, then the eggs, mix until incorperated. Stir in the mixed fruit last.
-Pour the batter into a prepared loaf pan, bake for 40 minutes. Insert toothpick in middle to see if bun is baked. If it is baked very little or no residue should be on the toothpick.
