Sticky Bun french Toast, Lancaster Sunday News Recipe, Romantic Bed and Breakfast


"Sticky Bun French Toast"

Featuring  Cinnamon Bread 
from 
Ric's Breads from Lancaster Central Market

On February 3, 2013 we were featured in the Sunday News.  

Thank you for the honor Stephen!


By STEPHEN KOPFINGER
Correspondent
This recipe is technically a breakfast dish, but why just enjoy it in the morning?

Georgie Blymier's take on cinnamon toast, after all, combines just a few simple ingredients to create something that's warming and nourishing no matter what the time of the day may be.

The results taste like a cross between French toast and a sticky bun, melding the flavors of vanilla and real maple syrup. In the latter category, it's worth the extra effort to obtain something that's not on the supermarket shelf.

Plus, this dish celebrates the adage "buy fresh, buy local."

That's not a problem in Lancaster County.

"I'm a huge, huge local market girl," says Blymier, 60, who runs the Olde Square Inn, a bed-and-breakfast housed in a 1920s mansion that was once home to a Mount Joy tobacco king.

Blymier, a Columbia native who operates the inn with her partner, Paul Lefever, is a fan of Ric's Bread, which has a location on North Queen Street and a stand at the venerable Lancaster Central Market.

She admits she's not one to be precise when it comes to cooking.

"I'm what you call a 'dumper,' " she says. "I look at a recipe, but I just do my thing. I'm not a measurer."

Today's dish (which makes use of bread from Ric's Bread) isn't tweaked from a cookbook, but was created "just in my mind," Blymier says.

That reflects Blymier's cooking background — or lack of it. Nobody really taught her culinary skills.

"I'm a foster kid," she says. "I just read books. I'm an avid reader of books. It's just one of the things God blessed me with."

Another is a talent for painting, which provides an appropriate metaphor for cooking.

"I'm a watercolorist," she said. "Cooking takes all of your senses. ... It all has to come together to make a beautiful canvas."
RIC'S BREAD CINNAMON TOAST
2 eggs

1/2 cup cream

1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

3 slices cinnamon-swirl bread

Butter, as needed

2 tablespoons real maple syrup

Whipped cream and strawberries, for garnish and flavor
Break eggs and whip with cream and vanilla. Dip bread into mixture. Melt butter in frying pan. Grill bread over medium to medium-high heat until brown. (Blymier likes the bread to have an almost crispy texture.) Place maple syrup in pan. Flip bread on each side in syrup and serve.

Top with whipped cream and strawberries. Serve with scrambled eggs or sausage, Blymier suggests.

The Baker's Table, Lancaster, Romantic Bed and Breakfast






"The Baker's Table"

The Baker's Table located in Urban Place, Lancaster PA.  

I love bakeries and this one is a gem!
As soon as you enter, it says "warmth, stay a spell "and captures you with it's olde time bakery feel.

A beautiful very long table is the center of attention.  Rolling pins on the walls, antique cake plates for you to purchase.

Windows to peak into and watch while the baker is creating the next wedding cake.

The bakery case is where the delicious unique desserts are waiting for you.

Pure chocolate, miniature coffee cup cup filled with mousse and even a chocolate stirrer is tucked into it.

Strawberries dipped in chocolate, miniature whoopie pies, slices of cakes, miniature lemon tarts with a fresh raspberry on top.

Everything is superb and they have won me over!
