Angel Food Cupcakes with Fresh Raspberry Cream

Learn More About This Recipe +

You don't need a special pan or anything to make these little bites of heaven, just a mixer! Light and summery, these cakes are amazing topped with fresh whipping cream infused with summer berries. When separating your eggs, be very careful not to get any yolk into the whites or they won't whip properly. I suggest cracking the eggs one at a time into an egg separator, then when you've successfully separated them pour the white into another bowl. This way if one egg breaks on you, the entire batch isn't ruined.



Light and summery, these are a perfect treat

Monte Cristo Sandwich

Learn More About This Recipe +

What could make a fried ham and cheese sandwich better than dipping it in an egg mixture and cooking it in butter? Monte cristo sandwiches can be a great addition to your breakfast menu, or whip them up for a great lunch or light dinner. Usually Emmental or gruyere is used, but I used cheddar in this instance. Thick bread works well as it soaks up the egg without getting too soggy, and gives you a sturdy base to stuff with all that ham and cheesy goodness. Add a little mustard to the bread and you've got yourself a great sandwich!

Enjoy a classic for breakfast!

Lemon Pudding Cake

Learn More About This Recipe +

You'd swear this cake is magic! While it bakes a fluffy, light, almost meringue-like sponge forms the top, but dig your spoon in for a surprise. Underneath the sponge is a light, lemony curd ready to spoon over the cake once you scoop it out. The cake is drier and more cake-like the first day you make it, but as it sits in the fridge it becomes more moist, almost with the texture of cheesecake. On a hot day baked up and then cooled in the fridge for a few hours, this cake is simply glorious topped with fresh raspberries and whipping cream. If you love lemon, this is definitely the dessert for you!

This recipe is adapted from Canadian Living's cookbook "Sweet and Simple" which was released this year. If you are looking for a book that has lots of easy recipes I highly recommend it for homemade pudding, custards,and great egg dessert recipes like this one!

Light and lemony, this is the ultimate summer dessert.

Soy Marinated Eggs

Learn More About This Recipe +

These eggs are so simple, and yet so unbelieveably delicious. Gently boiled just enough to create a silky, creamy yolk, and then marinated in a savoury liquid enough to give them amazing flavour. When my friends first spotted this recipe in Food 52, they insisted I needed to try them immediately. One friend stated that she can't get enough of these eggs and now has some in her fridge at all times. What I love about this recipe is that it's so amazingly simple, but also that you can re-use the marinade and that the eggs keep in the fridge really well so you can make some ahead of time. What a great summer snack!

Salty and creamy, these are the best soft boiled eggs.
