Hello Kfam, how are you all doing?
It's so cold in London and I didn't want to get out of bed this morning.You know the type of day when you just want to stay under the duvet and sleep all day? Yeah one of those days but then a girl's gotta to do what a girl's gotta do right? So here i am at the restaurant working hard and hustling my passion and making this post.
So on today's recipe, As I was about to write this post I deliberated on what name to call this. Akara in a hole? Bird's nest Akara? Akara hole? Akara toast? Toasted akara in bread? Then i thought oh shoot..It really doesn't matter what i call it, i just want to give you the recipe so you can make it and enjoy it! I decided to call it Akara in a hole.
So what is Akara in a hole? Akara in a hole is a new Nigerian breakfast developed by yours truly. It's very easy to make, you can make it as healthy as you like, it's quick and delicious. It is toasted bread and healthy akara all in one piece, no mess, no fuss, looks appealing and above all practical!
So fam, here is another K's Cuisine original recipe. Let's Cook:
Akara batter (Recipe HERE)
Butter or Sunflower oil
1) Place sliced bread on a board or plate and using a cookie cutter make a hole in the centre.
You can use any shape of cutter. I decided to use heart shape
2) Rub the pan with One or two teaspoons of oil and place the bread on it
3) Scoop Akara batter in the hole and leave to cook for atleast 40 seconds before attempting to move the bread so as to avoid making a mess of it.
4) Move it around and flip over to cook the other side
5) Akara in the hole is ready. There you have Toasted bread and Akara in one. How cool is that?
I cut into two so you can see how the bread is well toasted and Akara is well cooked? Super yum!
You can put butter on the toast when warm and enjoy with a cup of tea, coffee and juice!
Say hello to a new Nigerian breakfast the K's Cuisine way. Oh it doesn't have to be for just breakfast, It can go for Lunch and dinner too.
For healthier option use brown bread
Let's not forget the cut out part. Toast and enjoy. Nothing goes to waste.
You can apply extra butter on the toast after it's done. Apply while toast is still warm.
You can achieve in waffle maker and toaster.
For extra flavours add basil and peppers in the akara batter just like I did in the picture below.
That's it from me today. Don't forget to feedback and tag me in your pictures when you try it. I am on instagram and twitter as @kscuisine.
