Happy Tuesday and Happy Birthday to anyone who shares the same birthday as me today! Like me, I hope you all are taking some much needed rest time. You deserve to celebrate YOU today. To help you do that, I’ve included one of my favorite cake recipes of all time. My mom used to make this cake all the time when I was growing up and it was always the first to go at any special event or function. You’ll see why once you make it!

Buttermilk Pound Cake

Ingredients

  • 1 cup butter, softened
  • 2-1/2 cups sugar
  • 4 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • Confectioners’ sugar, optional

Directions

  1. In a large bowl, cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Beat in vanilla. Combine flour and baking soda; add alternately with buttermilk and beat well.
  2. Pour into a greased and floured 10-in. fluted tube pan. Bake at 325° for 70 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Cool in pan for 15 minutes before removing to a wire rack to cool completely. Dust with confectioners’ sugar if desired. Yield: 16-20 servings.

Try not to eat it all at once!

Happy Friday Everyone!

Sorry I’ve been absent this week. I had some personal issues I was dealing with as we all have from time to time but I am back and better than ever! What better way to celebrate than by sharing with you a sinfully amazing recipe to make your weekend that much better. So without further a due, introducing: Tater Tot Waffles with Bacon, Eggs, & Truffle Oil

IMG_7744

8 slices of bacon

4 eggs

1 tablespoon white vinegar

Nonstick cooking spray

1 (32-oz) bag of frozen tater tots, defrosted

Salt and pepper

Truffle oil, for garnish

Chopped scallions or chives, for garnish

For the Bacon & Eggs:

Fill a shallow pot with water and bring to a simmer. Heat a large skillet over medium heat and add the bacon. Cook until crispy and rendered. Drain on a paper-towel lined plate and set aside until you are ready to serve.

To the pot of simmering water, add the white vinegar. Keeping the water at a simmer (not a boil), create a whirlpool by stirring the water in a circular motion with a slotted spoon. Crack each egg into a small bowl or ramekin and then carefully drop them, one at a time, into the gently swirling and simmering water. Poach the eggs for 4 minutes, remove from the water with the slotted spoon, and carefully set on a paper-towel lined plate until you are ready to serve.

For the Waffles:

Heat a waffle iron and preheat the oven to 200°F.

Spray the waffle iron liberally with nonstick cooking spray. Spread roughly 2 cups of the tater tots on the iron in an even layer. Season with salt and pepper.

Close the waffle iron and cook on medium-high until the waffle is crisp, about 5 minutes.

Open the waffle iron and fill in any holes in the waffle with more tater tots, then close the iron again, and cook until golden and crispy, roughly 2-3 minutes more.

Transfer the waffle to a baking sheet; keep warm in the oven while you make the remaining waffles.

To Serve:

Halve each waffle. Place a waffle half on each serving plate and top with the crispy bacon, a poached egg, a sprinkle of salt and pepper, a drizzle of truffle oil, and lots of chopped scallions/chives. Serve immediately while warm.

NOTE:

You really want to take the time to defrost the tater tots before attempting to waffle them. For these waffles, I set the bag of tater tots out at room temperature, unopened, for about an hour. Then they were ready!

Have a GREAT weekend!
