Simply Sunday: Sunday brunch

 

Simply Dressed-9

Easy like Sunday morning isn’t just a song that sets the mood for the today’s blog. Today I think it is important to choose to create moments and memories on this note I want to share some things that I have made that allowed me to create the best moments with the people who mean the most to me. So follow me as I set the mood and share the recipe for some amazing food. So Sunday morning in my house growing up we would always have a big brunch, so as an adult it’s only natural for me to continue these traditions. So now that you have the back story let’s get to it.

Brunch

Simply Dressed-8

Dry ingredients

3 cups Swans Down Cake Flour (All Purpose Flour will work fine)

1/3 cup of white sugar

1 TBS Baking Powder

1/4 tsp salt

Wet ingredients

1/2 Stick of melted butter

2 eggs

2 cups of whole/buttermilk

2 TBS Vanilla

Directions

Combine all dry ingredients in a medium-sized mixing bowl and mix up. After all dry ingredients are thoroughly mixed in a separate bowl, combine all wet ingredients staring with the following order: melted butter, eggs, milk, and vanilla.  I chose to omit cinnamon but it can be added as well as pecans. Combine the wet and dry ingredients and thoroughly mix up, the batter shouldn’t be too thick or too runny. Pour about 1/4 cup of waffle mix into a clean and oiled waffle maker and cook for about 2-5 minutes depending on your preference. In addition to waffles I made fried chicken. However, you can totally opt for sausage/bacon/ham and some scrambled eggs. I also made a Homemade Peach Hennessy tea.

Ingredients

Package of chicken (I used drums and flats that were already separated but you could use legs/wings/tenders which ever you like. I personally think the drums and flats are perfect)

Seasoning

2 packages of Sazon

3 tablespoons of garlic powder

3 tablespoons of onion powder

2 tablespoon of Tony Chacheres (use less if you don’t like your food spicy)

1 tablespoon of pepper

Things needed

1 Ziplock bag

1 large bowl

1 small bowl

Frying oil

Frying pan/Deep fryer/deep cast iron skillet

*Rinse chicken off with cold water and add rinsed chicken to a bowl.  Measure out the above amounts and mix them up together in a small bowl take 1 tablespoon out and set a side.  Add all seasoning to chicken and toss chicken around to ensure chicken is evenly coated with seasoning. In a ziplock bag add 1.5 cup of flour and the tablespoon of seasoning you set aside. Close the bag and shake up to ensure seasoning is mixed in to the flour. Add chicken 5-6 pieces at a time and shake up, ensuring the chicken is evenly coated. ensure the grease is hot and fry **do not over crowd your fryer as this will result in soggy chicken. when the fryer is crowded the temperature drops**
