I take full credit for finding this recipe.
When I was working at a Bed and Breakast I was always on the lookout for new breakfast ideas. I found this one on Epicurious.com, although I can't find it there anymore.
But I remembered the recipe. It was single-handledly one of the favorite recipes we served on the weekends. It was our "Sunday Special".
And we always served it on Valentine's Weekend.
You almost feel guilty for eating dessert for breakfast...
And then you taste it and you get over the guilt real fast.
So if you are looking for a romantic breakfast to serve someone in bed....This is your recipe.
