You know what? I think I got me a winner: this recipe is really simple, tasty – and fast. Even if right now speed isn’t my topmost priority, it sure is for most people’s breakfasts.
There are quite a few French Toast recipes. I remember an exceptionally complicated one I attempted a year or so ago – there were numerous spices like nutmeg and cinnamon involved, and it had to be baguette, and the baguette had to be left soaking in the fridge overnight and baked in the oven in the morning.
And you know what? After all these efforts, it turned out the proportions in the recipe were off. The baguette stubbornly remained half-dry by the time we woke up, and it didn’t taste all that great anyway. So complex recipes are not always the best ones to follow.
Today’s simple french toast is perfect illustration of that.
Ingredients (for 2 people):
- bread – 4 pieces
- milk – 2/3 cup
- eggs – 4
- sugar – 2 tbsp
- liquid vanilla – 1 tsp
- salt – 1/4 tsp
- butter (for cooking)
- icing sugar (for decoration)
- berries, yogurt, fruits, honey, maple syrup, ice-cream – whatever you want
- Mix all the ingredients in a bowl (I find using a rectangular lunch box the same size as a piece of bread the most convenient).
- Soak up the first 1 or 2 pieces of bread on each side.
- Meanwhile, heat up the frying pan to just above medium on the stove.
- Fry the toasts on each side (soak up the next two pieces while frying).
- Serve powdered with icing sugar and your choice of decorations.
