A foodie aside… Austrian Breakfast

This morning I treated myself to a yummy brekkie that I learned from my Austrian aunt:

Recipe (quantities are approximate):

1 C wheat farina

2 C milk

2 eggs, separated

Zest of 1 lemon

1 tsp cinnamon

1 Tbsp Sugar

A pinch of salt


Whisk all ingredients except egg whites together in large bowl until frothy. Whip egg whites until just before they form peaks, fold into batter. Pour into preheated and buttered nonstick shallow frying pan on low heat. Cover and cook, lifting mixture to allow remaining liquid to flow to the bottom. Once majority of liquid is evaporated (10 min or so) use wooden spoon to break it into pieces and turn up the heat, cooking until it is browned to your preference. Serve with homemade whipped cream and top with a bit more sugar if you would like it sweeter. Bon appetit!
