    That title looks a bit odd doesn’t it. Let me explain:

    It isn’t an everyday occurrence here, so when my bride cruised in and suggested it, my eyes twinkled and I can’t tell you how enthusiastically I agreed. One doesn’t want to seem too eager-- but yep, that was me with glinting eyes, grin from ear to ear and rubbing my palms together. “Let’s do it !"

    First a bit of background: What are “Flipping Bitches”? It is a literal translation from the Dutch term, Wentelteefjes”. Wentel = flip or turn over. Teefjes – little female dogs, or bitches as they are called by breeders. It has also been suggested that way, way back in history a teefje may have been a type of pastry. It does not exist anymore.

    So then, you have the literal translation and the background...but what the heck are "Flipping Bitches" really? Traditionally it is stale bread soaked in an egg-milk mixture and fried in butter while flipping them over to brown both sides.

    There are many names for this delightful food in most countries—In Great Britain they are called, “Eggy-fried Bread” or “Eggy Bread”. In the U.S. I believe it is called, “French Toast”. At home we just call them, “Flippin’ Bitches”, and laugh like children.

    So then, how do we make them? Well, there are several different ways to make them and several ways to eat them, once prepared. The Bride doesn’t have a recipe as such...she sort of cooks this and other dishes intuitively, I guess you’d say—you know, “a bit of this, a pinch of that, a nob of butter, a shake of cinnamon”...you get the picture. Well, I plopped her in the barstool and tied her securely up until I was able to extract the following recipe:

    Recipe for 4 – 6 slices of bread
    2 large eggs
    1 cup of milk
    2 tsps sugar (or more or less, to your taste)
    1 tsp cinnamon (or more or less, to your taste)
    Butter to fry them in

    1 -- Mix the eggs with the milk, sugar, and cinnamon.
    2 -- Dip the bread slices in the mixture and stack them on a deep plate.
    3 -- Fry the slices in butter until brown.

    4 -- Eat with powdered sugar, whipped cream or as we do...with Maple Surpel

    I almost forgot to take a pic. This was the last one. Wentelteefjes are the ideal brunch on such an ugly day. And now...I see by the clock on the wall that it is tea-time. It doesn't win any prizes for being healthy...but youngens, it is sooooo good. To make it "healthy", I poured a glass freshly squeezed jus d'orange for us both.
    Excuse me...I have to go and untie the Bride now.

    Heh,heh,heh MART--Done.;)

    Thanks TONI--I have eaten them with powders sugar. That tastes good as well. We have some things here called, poffertjes, and I always eat them with powdered sugar.

    CAROLYN--You could call them, pafese or pofese. Didn't you tell me once that your man comes from Austrian stock? They are good however you call them...they are just too rich for me to eat them frequently.

    Right you are, PHILIP.

    Hee,hee, hee---2OF, you ARE a little devil, aren't you. I wonder what his response was. Ha, ha, ha.

    Oh...I see CAROLYN. I believe that the German name for the Wentelteefjes is Arme Ritter (poor knight).
    Chuckle MART---You know a tasty thing when you see it, don't you.

    well, he did ask for pancakes on Sunday but I suggested the flipping B's... he got wide eyed and I started laughing. he declined as the last time his stomach didn't feel good. I think eggs tend to bother him too.

    Awwwww....too bad, and you meant well. chuckle.
    Well, they are a very rich meal, that's for sure. I can imagine that some folks' tums are a bit sensitive to them.

    Its nice to surprise your spouse from time to time, isn't it CAROLYN.

    Good luck with your teefjes tomorrow KK--. If Becks raises her eyebrows....better not tell her the name. Just tell her that it is a sweet roti chennai or murtabak (not filled)..... or something . hahaha.
    Selamat makan.
