We are having more foggy mornings now that it has begun to be cool in the dawn.
This made of cold mornings that I would awake as a child and when I arrived at the kitchen Mother would have a big plate of home made biscuits and Chocolate Gravy. So I will be sharing the recipe for the gravy today.
1 cup sugar
3 Tbsp all purpose flour
3 Tbsp cocoa
2 cups milk
2 eggs yolks
2 Tsp of vanilla
Butter to taste
Mother would use a fork and mix the flour and cocoa together and then add the sugar and stir so the dry ingredients are thoroughly mixed. Beat the eggs yolks into the milk. In a saucepan or skillet, put the milk mixture and stir in the dry ingredients (slowly) If you dump it in it will LUMP LUMP LUMP.After the dry ingredients have been added , stir in the vanilla. You cook the gravy over low heat and constantly stirring for about 25 minutes. After it thicken, add butter to taste. Serve over homemade biscuits.
Stand back and listen to the mumms and ahhs. Puts a smile on a hungry kids face.
The kitty justice if I was still a kid, I would have someone to cook my breakfast.
