Easter Weekend Brunch

Easter!!!! This year I spent Easter with Mike’s family in Rochester.  I happened to wake up super early, so I decided to be productive and whip up something for brunch….which turned into coffee cake, scones, and mini frittatas.  IMG_4317

If I do say so myself, I was very happy with how everything turned out!

Even though I may have cooked the scones at the wrong temperature for a bit first before I realized it …. they still turned out great!

For the frittatas, I sautéed pancetta with peas and green onions.  Once combined with the egg mix in a muffin tin, I dolloped some ricotta cheese on top and baked them at 350 degrees for about 25 minutes (if I remember correctly 🙂 ).

With some fresh basil ribbons and cracked black pepper….these were a big hit and I will definitely be making them again!

And of course, brunch means coffeecake! This one had a light but substantial sugary cinnamon streusel topping with a tasty chocolate swirl inside.  Possibly the best coffeecake I’ve made.  Just saying.IMG_4316

So here’s a close up of my plate.  Doesn’t it look delicious, especially with the brightly shining fresh berries!IMG_4318Yes, I’ve decided, brunch is definitely my favorite meal of them all.
