Breakfast, so they say, is the most important meal of the day. This is especially true when you’re going to spend the day exploring Philadelphia‘s historic sites or, say, visiting the new Museum of the American Revolution. Really, it’s important even if you simply want to have a relaxing morning. And starting this week, Philly’s Old City neighborhood has a new option for a morning meal at The Little Lion.
Not only did this past weekend’s blizzard live up to expectations, it exceeded them. The 6 to 12 inches ended up being more like 25 inches in our neck of the woods. Either way, Saturday was going to be a snow day. In other words, a perfect day for baking. So I decided to whip up some cinnamon buns with a twist: salt caramel maple frosting!
I’m going to go out on a limb here and say something controversial. It may cause me to be disowned by my own mother. However, it’s something I feel strongly and am willing to stand behind. French toast does not need cinnamon. In fact, I’d go so far as to say many recipes need less or no cinnamon. I said it and I don’t regret it. Don’t like it? Tough. But try this French toast recipe before making a decision.
