Let Valentine’s Day not be the most important holiday in the calendar. And yet the lovers are waiting for him with impatience. After all, this is an opportunity to again admit to the second half in warm feelings and give a few pleasant moments. The easiest and most proven way is to present a romantic breakfast in bed. A little time, a little imagination, a generous portion of care — and everything will work out. What to cook, we will tell you right now.
Scrambled eggs for romantics
To begin with, an original recipe for toast with a filling of fried eggs. Take a wide slice of bread and use a metal cookie mold in the form of a heart to carefully cut out the middle. Sprinkle the toast with vegetable oil and lightly fry on both sides in a frying pan with oil. Carefully break the egg into the hole so that the yolk remains intact. We cook like a regular glaze, at the end we salt and pepper only the protein. Serve the toast hot with cherry tomatoes and fresh herbs.
The remaining bread heart will make an excellent dessert. We dry the crumb in the oven, grease it with butter and jam. We caramelize several circles of banana in butter with sugar and spread it on sweet toast.
Please the refined natures with a recipe for waffle hearts in a waffle iron. In a deep bowl, rub 150 g of softened butter with 3 tablespoons of ordinary sugar and a bag of vanilla. Add 3 eggs and whisk everything with a whisk. Without stopping, pour in 250 ml of slightly warm milk. Gradually sift 200 g of flour with 1 tsp of baking powder and a pinch of salt, knead a thick smooth dough.
We lubricate the waffle iron with cells in the form of hearts with vegetable oil, heat it up well, fill it with dough. Bake the waffles for about 5 minutes, until they are deliciously browned. Serve the airy Belgian waffles immediately, before they have had time to cool down, with thick sour cream or natural yogurt.
Pancakes with recognition
Rosy pancakes in the form of hearts will tell you about the main thing without words. Beat 2 eggs with 2 tablespoons of sugar into a foamy mass. Pour in 60 g of melted butter, cooling to room temperature. Sift 300 g of flour with a pinch of salt and 1 tsp baking powder. Knead a thick homogeneous mass without lumps and leave for 10-15 minutes.
Heat a greased frying pan with a thick bottom. We form a small high pancake on it. As soon as it is browned at the very edges from below and covered with bubbles from above, turn it over to the other side and fry until golden brown. Ready-made pancakes are stacked in a pile, smearing each with butter. When they cool down a little, we cut out the hearts with the help of curly molds. Serve the pancakes with maple syrup or honey, supplemented with fresh raspberries.
Cupcakes with a surprise
How can I make cupcakes with hearts? There are many recipes. We will share the easiest and fastest to prepare. Soak 100 g of dried cranberries in rum or cognac for an hour. Beat 2 eggs, 100 g of sugar and 200 g of melted butter into a thick mass with a mixer. Sift 200 g of flour with 2 tsp baking powder, knead the dough. At the end, pour in 50 ml of orange juice, pour out the orange zest and cranberries soaked in rum, mix everything again.
We will definitely need beautiful silicone molds in the form of hearts. We lubricate them with vegetable oil, fill them with two-thirds of the dough, put them in the oven at 200 °C for 25-30 minutes. Such cupcakes can be baked in the evening — they will only taste better overnight. Serve them directly in the molds, tied with a satin ribbon.
Coffee in bed for a loved one works flawlessly. The matter remains for an interesting dessert. The recipe for cookies in the shape of hearts is exactly what you need. Grate 150 g of butter, add 150 g of fine sugar and 2 eggs, mix thoroughly. Pour 250 g of flour, 0.5 tsp of salt, 1.5 tsp of baking powder in several steps, put vanilla on the tip of a knife. Knead a soft plastic dough.
We roll out a layer 4-5 mm thick and cut out cookies with the help of molds. We divide it into parts and cut holes in half of the cookies with a heart shape or a knife in the center. It will turn out a kind of curly frames. We send the cookies for 7-10 minutes in the oven at 200 °C. We spread jam or jam from red berries on ready-made cookies without frames and cover them with cookies with cut-out hearts, powdered with powdered sugar.
Breakfast in Paris
What could be more romantic than a French breakfast? For him, you will need a recipe for croissants at home. We dilute 3 tablespoons of sugar and a bag of dry yeast in 120 ml of warm milk, leave it in the heat for 15-20 minutes. We grind 200 g of flour and 150 g of frozen butter, crushed on a grater, into a crumb. We introduce the sourdough with a pinch of salt, knead the dough and put it in the refrigerator for half an hour.
We roll out a thick rectangular layer from the dough. We wrap the edges to the middle one on top of the other, first along, and then across. We roll out the layer again and repeat the procedure three times. Now we roll out the dough into a very thin layer, cut into triangles and roll up the bagels with curved edges. Lubricate them with a mixture of yolk and milk and bake in the oven at 200 °C for 15-20 minutes. The French eat classic croissants without filling, dipping them in coffee or hot chocolate. For avid sweeteners, you can supplement them with honey, jam or chocolate paste.
The morning starts with fruit
Some even on holidays do not allow themselves to relax and take care of the figure. In this case, please them with a healthy breakfast. The recipe for fruit salad with yogurt will definitely benefit the body and give pleasure. The beauty is that you can take absolutely any fruit and berries. The main thing is that they are fresh and delicious.
We remove the thick skin from the kiwi fruit and cut it into semicircles. We divide the orange into slices, remove the white films, cut the juicy pulp into slices. We chop a banana with circles, a handful of fresh strawberries with slices, pineapple rings with large cubes. Mix all the ingredients in a salad bowl, add grapes and pomegranate seeds. Season the festive salad with natural yogurt and garnish with fresh mint leaves.
