I have such an easy recipe for you to make a fluffy omelette using baking powder. I know, at first, I was like whaaaat?!
Why do I need baking powder to make an Omelette? After trying the recipe myself over the weekend, I understood why it is needed. I tried the recipe twice before I got it right. Baking powder creates air pockets in the egg which helps make it light and fluffy however adding too much baking powder can change the flavour of the egg. It’s important to stick to the exact amount suggested to add otherwise you will end up with bitter eggs.
After failing and trying again, my eggs were fluffy and light. Practise makes perfection right? 😀
Ingredients (serves 2):
- 30ml (2 Tbsp) butter or margarine
- 2 medium onions, coarsely chopped
- 10ml (2 tsp) white sugar
- 6 extra-large eggs
- 60ml (1/4 cup) milk
- 10ml (2 tsp) Royal Baking Powder
- salt and freshly ground pepper to taste
- 1 medium tomato, finely chopped
- 250ml (1 cup) grated cheddar cheese white sugar
How to Make a Fluffy Omelette:
Heat half the butter in a heavy-based saucepan. Add onions and sauté until soft. Add sugar and sauté until caramelized. Remove from heat and set aside.
Whisk eggs, milk, Royal Baking Powder and seasoning together. Melt the remaining butter in a non-stick, heavy-based frying pan. Add the egg mixture. When it starts to cook, sprinkle tomato, cheese and caramelized onion over.
Place omelette under a preheated oven grill until cheese starts to melt. Do not overcook as eggs continue to cook after being removed from heat. Fold omelette in half and serve immediately.
Substitute onion and tomato with tuna, any other cold meat or fried mince.
