a warm breakfast for these cool fall mornings...


This was a breakfast dish that I grew up enjoying with my family.  The recipe was passed down to me from my mom who got it from her mother.  You can serve it up with cinnamon and sugar or cinnamon and real maple syrup or cinnamon and applesauce.  It is the best breakfast for cool weekend mornings.  I believe you spell it "Chuchel" but our family opted for "Chuckle" as we always seemed to have a good chuckle or two when we tried to flip it in the skillet and keep it all in one piece.  I'm actually pretty good at it now.


  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup flour
  • 3/4 cup milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla (I use 2 tsp!)
  • salt (dash)
  • oil (to coat pan)
Place skillet on medium heat on stovetop, coat pan with oil. Mix all other ingredients and pour into heated skillet and let cook until edges start to look solid, (think of an extra-large pancake here) and then loosen edges and (attempt to) flip the entire "chuckle." Cook on that side until golden brown, (about 5 minutes), then cut into cubes. Cook cubes for another 5 minutes or so until all chuckles are golden brown. Serve with sprinkled cinnamon and syrup or cinnamon and applesauce. Serves: 2 adults and 1 seven year old nicely!

This looks wonderful Jen! When I first looked at the photo I thought it was french toast cut in cubes. The next time I'm "on my own" for a few days I'm going to try this recipe!
