"How wonderful that Marion Cunningham has seen fit to devote an entire book to what I've always considered to be the most American and most exciting meal of the day. Anyone who suffers under the false impression that breakfast is an unimportant, uninteresting meal will have a mouth-watering awakening while thumbing through The Breakfast Book."
This charming, cozy, one-of-a-kind cookbook is devoted exclusively to breakfast--that most American of meals which, it seems, is everyone's secret passion. Marion Cunningham, who is known nationally as the Fannie Farmer of today, celebrates the simple pleasures of a good breakfast with 288 irresistible recipes for traditional favorites--from scones and sticky buns and popovers and hash browns to all kinds of eggs and pancakes and muffins--as well as some new treats she has created for the breakfast menu at the Bridge Creek Restaurant in Berkeley (such as her famous Heavenly Hots and and her airy Lemon Zephyrs).
She shows you how to make your own fresh sausage; she devises new approaches to traditional breakfast dishes--baking donuts (instead of deep frying), magically filling cornbread with a creamy custard, and rolling puffy muffins in cinnamon sugar. She whets your appetite for honest home-cooked cereals and revives the custom of puddings and pies for breakfast treats.
Her Great Coffee Cake lends itself to a variety of spicy, crunchy combinations; her Raw Fresh Fruit Jams can be made in just 30 minutes (with no cooking); and her Oatmeal Bran and Mother's Cookies are a godsend when breakfast is on the run. And for more leisurely moments and special occasions, Marion Cunningham has created some forty breakfast menus guaranteed to make the first meal of the day the best.
