Jessie’s Special Treat – Blueberry French Toast

Sunday mornings in January are always lazy times at the North Pole.  The elves get Sundays off  and Santa tries to stay away from his lists.

Molly loves having Santa home and tries to make a special breakfast for the family.  Each week she makes something different.  Sometimes she makes Santa’s favorite Waffles and sometimes when hen Jessie has gotten better from being sick, or when she’s been a particularly good girl, Molly makes Jessie’s favorite breakfast Blueberry French toast.

Jessie loves the food so much she wants to share the recipe with all her friends.

Molly’s Baking Helpful Hints

mhh

  • If you plan to freeze spice cake leave the cloves out. Cloves get stronger when chilled.
  • Use the wrappers from butter and shortening to grease cake pans.
  • Sprinkle your cake plate with icing sugar or granulated sugar to keep the cake from sticking to the plate.
  • Dust your cake with powdered sugar before icing to keep icing from running off your cake.
  • A slice of apple under your cake dome will keep your cake fresher.
  • Slice leftover cake into slice and freeze. Take out for lunches.  The cake will be thawed by the time your ready to eat.
  • Before rolling cookie dough chill for ½ hour. This makes it much easier to roll without sticking.
  • For refrigerator cookies chill dough in empty orange juice tubes. The slices will be perfectly symmetrical.
  • Use an ice cream scoop to scoop out cookies onto your cookie tins. Your cookies will all be uniform in size.
  • When sprinkling sugar on cookies use an empty salt shaker.
