The Joy of PW Cooking: Week 2: Cinnamon Baked French Toast

Our Pioneer Woman Cooking Project made it to a second week. Woo Hoo! We may be on a roll here.

This week we made PW's Cinnamon Baked French Toast. Man oh man. Click over to her blog to get her recipe and see her scrumptious photos.

My mom was our very special cooking guest this week, all the way from Florida.

Hi mom!


Step 1 of the Cinnamon Baked French Toast recipe was to rip bread into pieces. The girls went at it with angry gusto. Rip. Rip. Rip. Grrrr.


CarriBear was really good at the angry part.


Maybe a little too good. Hmmm, maybe more than bread therapy is in order for my sweet little angry girl.


Or maybe it was just acting after all. She's a THESpian! It was ACTing! (Yeah, too much SNL in my younger years).


Our cyber-cooking-partner, Aunt Laurie, joined us again, and also had a really good time ripping bread apart.


As usual, the kids would get distracted from cooking by holding various objects up to see how they looked on the webcam, like this ultra-interesting twistie-tie.

Laurie was fascinated, I'm sure.


Comparing eggs.


CarriBear works hard cookin'...


... while DJ is busy snitchin' ingredients behind the scenes.


but she eventually tries her hand at egg cracking, too.


luckily we had lots of extra eggs :).



Laurie and BeachPea pour on the egg mixture together (virtually).


But of course DJ has to do the final drops.


mixing the topping


Hooray! Almost done!

Cyber cooking sometimes takes a little longer,

but it sure is fun...


and really yummy!

Ours didn't quite look like PW's. I think it might have been because I used the wrong kind of bread, but I didn't have any crusty sourdough on hand and didn't have the gumption to run all the way to the store to get it. But it tasted better than it looked, so it all ended well.

We added diced apples before putting the topping on. Very yummy. This is a great dish to make if you have company staying for several days, because it makes a lot and gets better every time you reheat it. Add coffee and some fruit on the side and you have instant breakfast.

Several other of our family members have said they want in on our cooking project, so we may have a few more talking heads on our counter the next time we do it. I love technology.

And I love PW cooking.

(Did I just put love and cooking in the same sentence? I think I did. Weird.)

You can see all of Pioneer Woman's recipes in her recipe archives.

Bye-bye from the kitchen,
