Sunday mornings are my designated mornings of relaxation, as I’m sure they are for most people. It’s my one morning a week where I’m not running around like crazy trying to get out of the house.
It’s the only morning where I get to enjoy a more lavish breakfast than a quick bowl of oats or granola bar on the run. This typically involves me rummaging through my fridge and pantry and pulling out a whole bunch of things to make pancakes, eggs, anything I have on hand. A delicious meal typically follows, but I always regret it after I finish eating and remember the pile of dishes in the sink.
This past Sunday I wanted to keep it simple and easy, and avoid all those dishes.
I decided to try out the Burwell General Store Cardamom Quick Bread. I am typically not one to use quick mixes because I associate them with a long list of unfamiliar ingredients.
But Burwell’s mix was different: a short list of ingredients I knew, and liked. I unwrapped the mix, cracked an egg, added a splash of oil and milk, gave it a stir, and the bread was ready to bake. After 30 minutes in the oven the bread was done and ready to be enjoyed with my mug of hot tea: the perfect Sunday morning breakfast.
An added bonus: the mix comes in it’s own baking pan, which meant no dishes to clean up afterward. This allowed me to move on to the most important Sunday task: relaxing.
