Do you ever have those moments where you crave something so much, yet you have either never eaten it, or hadn't eaten it for a long time? I had that exact moment with french toast earlier this week
Personally, I haven't made french toast before, so I was glad to read that it actually is not very hard at all! I chose to have maple syrup and blueberries with mine, creating a delicious and filling breakfast!
Ingredients (for two slices of french toast):
- Any thick crusted bread (other than baguette)
- 2 eggs
- 200ml milk
- A handful of berries (or other chosen fruit)
- As much Maple syrup as you desire!
What to do:
- First, pour the milk into a measuring jug, and crack both eggs into the milk. Ensure no shell has made its way in, and whisk with a fork for one minute.
- Next, pour this mixture into a bowl or tray big enough to fit the mixture and eventually the bread.
- Slice the bread into THICK slices. I would recommend around 1.5-2cm in thickness to ensure that the inside of the bread remains soft, and the crust retains its crunchiness.
- Place the bread into the milk/egg mixture, and leave it to set. I would recommend putting it into the fridge and leaving it overnight, making sure to flip it once at some point.
- Once the bread has soaked in the mixture, gently heat a pan while melting some butter to ensure the bread will not stick.
- While on a mid heat, place your bread onto the pan. Fry the bread until it reaches a golden brown colour, ensuring to flip it to cook both sides sufficiently.
- Serve the toast on your favourite plate, dosing it in as much maple syrup as you find necessary finished off with a handful of fruit!
