Breaking Fast Like A Boss

I’m going to get real with you guys today. Ok, so I am not fake at all in my other posts but today, I have just got to let it out. Hard hitting, real life observation that I, and basically everyone else in the world, have made.

Breakfast is the most important meal of the day.

You feed me well at breakfast, and I wouldn’t need to eat for the rest of the day until supper. Supper being fruit and milk of course. You feed me well at breakfast and I go out with a spring in my step, a smile actually on my face as opposed to pasted on, and a whole lot more positive vibes resonating from me! :D

Breakfast is the best.

Lunch tried to be breakfast with ‘brunch’.
Dinner is often an assortment of breakfast foods eaten again.

Breakfast is the best. Period.

You wake up at noon? No worries mate, you eat cereal for your ‘lunch’. Breakfast always wins. :D

Breakfast, in the meal world, is the Hercules, defeating tiredness, sickness, and all other deadly awful monsters surrounding us. If you believe in religion, breakfast is akin to god, protecting without us even realising. I don’t believe in religion, but BOY, do I believe in breakfast :P

Breakfast clutches its butter knife in its fist and launches itself at the bacteria waiting to gnaw at your unassuming intestines. Breakfast slathers itself in jam and rolls all the way with its various partners during long, tedious commutes. And it stays warm. Oh my.

Who run the world?
Breakfast.

Beyonce I love you, but honey, get your facts right.

But of course, as is the case with all heroes, heroines, mythical or real, Breakfast too has its own harmatia. Whether it be Achilles with his heel, Superman with his Kryptonite, Hercules with his uncontrollable strength or Zeus with his lust, everyone has that fatal flaw.

Breakfast… your one fatal flaw is… that… you can be a little… well…predictable.

BOOM. There I said it, admit it breakfast ADMIT it! Stop hiding behind the few interesting dishes people eat, be the god-like entity you are and TAKE YOUR CRITICISM!

*deep breaths* everybody just CALM the frick down…

Phew. Intense right? But it is true… breakfast is so delicious. We look forward to it, we crave it, and yet, we know exactly what we are getting – no surprise, no change, just routine.

Which is why, from NOW on, everyday when I eat breakfast, I am going to do something different. It could be something as small as trying a new type of fruit in my cereal, or it could be trying a completely new breakfast item. I don’t know about you but I want myself to get excited in the morning because I don’t know what my fave meal will bring me!

It might even help me get out of bed faster! #secondarybenefits

If you want to join me in ending Breakfast’s harmatia once and for all, and stopping this trend of boring breakfasts every routinely morning, then I reckon, like me, you get started with the bread food porn that has been popping up throughout this post :)

Just a suggestion, just an idea, but if you want to break out of wheat bread toast, and start breaking your fast like the boss that you all are, this bread is the way to go. Honestly, I don’t even need to butter it, or jam it, or even toast/grill it for it for it to taste good.

Imagine soft crumby dough, with delicate sugary-cinnamon flavour pockets swirling around in it, with the occasional surprise *pop* of a golden raisin.

Yeah, it is a pretty nice image right? ;)

So much better than the routine breakfasts non?

After all – it is a combo of cinnamon toast and raisin bread, made at home so while you dine, you have that fresh bakery smell surrounding you and enhancing the experience! :D

Enjoy this Cinnamon Swirl Raisin Bread mes cheris!

    This cinnamon swirl bread looks amazing. I need to get over my fear of yeast and make some dough. This must happen in my kitchen. You are so clever and fearless in the kitchen. :)

  2. Lmao! Uru, I loved this post so much. “Who run tha world? Breakfast” <– TRUTH! I loooooooove breakfast too (I could eat it any time of day, all day). Your cinnamon swirl raisin bread looks ridiculously good. As in, cram it into my mouth as fast as possible good.

  3. I’m not a morning person at all. I used to be, but my illness and meds means I don’t usually see mornings. Would definitely trying getting up for this raisin bread though. I think I’d sub with sultanas since they’re sweeter and more juicer than raisins.

  4. I agree about breakfast but sad to say, never been into it; either I’m rushing or I’m too lazy to eat in the morning.

    The bread is simply divine and you sure did a fabulous job.

  5. Barbara says:

    Yes, I admit it. I eat the same breakfast every morning! And yes, I agree it’s the most important meal of the day. Loving your cinnamon rolls and wish they were in my kitchen right now!

  6. Jo says:

    I don’t ever think that breakfast is boring. In fact, I love my breakfasts and would never skip them. A cinnamon swirl raisin bread ranks very high on my favourite breakfast item. Perfect way to start a day!

  7. I’m always a big breakfast eater. Not a fan of a big breakfast, mind you — too much food too early in the day. But always eat something. Your cinnamon swirl raisin bread would be perfect for me. Thanks!

  8. If there is one thing that I harp on, that would be a good breakfast. I have made everyone a breakfast eater, and while it was a tough journey with lots of tough love, it has been worth it. Now no one in the house can do without a good breakfast and this swirl looks a perfect beginning…like a boss!

  9. Suzanne says:

    You are so right, breakfast is the most important meal of the day and I have not eaten it yet, my bad! I would like a slice (or 2 or 3) of that gorgeous loaf, love cinnamon raisin bread, slathered with butter, YUM, looks delicious.

  10. As a lifelong Jersey girl, I know the importance of breakfast food. I also know the importance of breakfast-for-other-meals food. I find myself completely at a loss if I go out of state and there are no diners. How do you get pancakes for dinner if you have no diners? *hyperventilating*

    Ahem, I’m cool, I’m cool. I’d be happy to eat your cinnamon bread any meal of the day, any day of the week. (PS, you should totally make a dessert sandwich with cinnamon bread, Nutella, and strawberries or strawberry jam. Because it’s EPIC)

  11. Erika says:

    These rolls look yummy! When I was in uni I could go the whole day without eating. A good breakfast and a small bottle of yoghurt at lunchtime would keep me going from 6am until dinner. But, unlike you, dinner wouldn’t be fruit and milk ;)

  12. Awh yeah… totes hear that! Breakfast is my absolute fave meal of the day, although during the week I don’t eat it, def make up for it on the weekends. I tried that mixing it up business, failed… No point filling up on fruit when you can eat bacon, soooo much bacon. :) Love your bread, I shall add to the list of delights to bake.

  13. There is an old saying eat breakfast like a king, lunch like a prince and dinner like a pauper. I am pretty boring with my breakfast routines and would not mind giving this delicious bread starting tomorrow. Hot out of the oven.

  14. Breakfast does make a difference. Ask any teacher and she can tell you which kids haven’t eaten just by their behaviour. Your raisin bread would be a delightful way to start the day. Starting tomorrow morning!

  15. A_Boleyn says:

    I rarely get up in time for breakfast but I have a preference for savoury items. That said, I’m not going turn down a slice of this bread if it’s not like most I’ve had in the past on the day AFTER it’s been baked … dry and tasteless.
