Once Upon A Saturday Morning

It’s 6 o’clock on a Saturday morning and all through the house not a person was up and about except mom. She was busy in the kitchen mixing up a tasty treat for her tribe. She gathered flour, cinnamon, nutmeg and sugar; some butter, eggs, and whipping cream too. Then for a magical taste she reached for some egg nog. Yes, egg nog. These will be tasty waffles indeed. And with some cinnamon whipped cream to dollup on top these would surely be waffles supreme!
Gathering the essentials.
1-1/2 cups of this magical liquid to take 
these waffles to The. Next. Level.

Don't overmix. Lumps are a good thing 
in waffle land.
Fill your waffle maker with amount it 
requires and...

Voila!!! Yummy happens.
 I used the leftover whipping 
cream from last nights supper. 
I just added some cinnamon.
Look how pretty it is. And its going to 
be the perfect compliment for the Egg 
Nog waffles.
Serve warm sprinkled with powdered sugar and a big 
dollop of the cinnamon whipped cream. Extra whipped 
cream is strongly encouraged. 

Guaranteed good to the last crumb!

**I didn't have butter and substituted 1/3 cup 
cooking oil as a substitute.**

This is my modified version of the recipe from:

Oh Meyer! Lemon Loaf

I'm so excited friends and I just couldn't wait to post. The last time I made a lemon loaf it stuck to the pan, and  I was not sure if it was the goop's fault or mine. I was hoping it was mine because I really love my goop (homemade pam spray) I think it is the best thing since anything as far as baking goes. 
Anyways, I made another lemon loaf today, and was praying that it wouldn't stick to the pan because I was making it to take to a friend. So thinking back on my disastrous last loaf of lemon bread; I said a prayer, baked the bread, and when it was done I let it cool in the pan just a bit longer. this time.  Last time I tried to take it out of the pan at about 10 minutes, and this time I waited patiently for 15 minutes. Santo remedio, as we say in Spanish. It truly was the holy remedy because the bread came out perfectly. So glad it worked out. My patience paid off. 

The Goop. Magic stuff it is!

The finished Lemon Loaf.


Lemon drizzle/glaze. Guess it really depends on how much 
you put on the loaf. I'd say I glazed today. 

Yep, its glazed.
