I really enjoy when I have a little extra time in the morning to potter about in the kitchen and cook breakfast. I like banana and blueberry pancakes with warm maple syrup, omelettes with chives and smoked salmon, eggs Benedict with ham and English muffins, croque madame or full-English, but they require way too much effort for a Tuesday morning, plus I don't have most of the ingredients anyway. If only I have at-home-room-service... *sigh... if only.
Instead, I baked Nigella's Irish oaten rolls. They're like mini soda breads, but no kneading involve whatsoever. It takes about 5 minutes to mix all the ingredients and shape them into rolls and 15 minutes in the oven.
Freshly baked rolls, soft butter, apricot jam and a big cup of coffee. Heaven.
Do I really have to go and do some work now...
