Sick of the rain and crazy weather? Here are 5 rainy day recipes so that being stuck indoors doesn't seem like so much of a punishment. So what is rainy weather food? It's not salad and ice cream. Rather it's delicious butter tarts, warming soups, cheese pastries, hot donuts and rich chocolate muffins!
These Canadian Butter Tarts are a wonderful rainy day bake because not only are they delicious, they may also transport you to another country. A butter tart is a rich pastry tart filled with vanilla soused raisins and butter and has to be tried at least once (and trust me you'll want to try these many times afterwards).
What's a rainy day without soup? I love having this wonderful barley, pork and vegetable soup simmering away for 4 hours on the stove with barely any attention. By dinner time you've got a tasty dinner sorted!
3 -Cheese Knish
I always think of cheese knishs as rainy or cold weather food perhaps because when I first tried one it was in New York at Christmas time and it was freezing cold! These are delicious pockets of dough filled with garlic, potatoes and cheese filling. They're incredibly delicious and perfect for a lunchbox too!
Donuts on a rainy day? In Sri Lanka, donuts are made on rainy days, perhaps as an antidote to the rainy day blues. These Colombian Buñuelo donuts are made with cheese and sprinkled with icing sugar and are so delicious! They only take 5 minutes prep too!
Muffins are one of the best bakes if you're low on energy but want something sweet and tasty. There's no heavy equipment needed, just a bowl and a spatula and you'll end up with an absolutely delicious rich triple chocolate muffin in the end. Perfect for afternoon tea time or breakfast!
So tell me Dear Reader, how do you chase any the rainy weather blues? Do you like to bake or cook anything in particular?
