From champagne to kisses, some things are better when they’re French.
One of my absolute favourite foods is French toast and my default choice from the brunch menu. Crispy on the outside and soft on the inside, it’s so filling and can be sweet or savoury. A delicious alternative to pancakes that make for perfect lazy Sundays.
Here is my recipe for brunch-worthy French toast.
You will need:
- 2 eggs
- 2 tbsp milk
- Pinch cinnamon
- 1 tbsp sugar
- Pinch salt
- 2 slices sourdough bread
- Maple syrup
First, whisk together the eggs, milk, cinnamon, sugar and salt in a bowl until completely blended together and silky smooth. Cut the bread into diagonal halves and submerge in the mixture so that they are covered on both sides.
In a frying pan, melt 2 teaspoons of butter and then add the batter-soaked bread. Cook on a medium heat for a couple of minutes on each side. It should be golden brown on the outside and soft on the inside, although you can cook according to taste.
Set the toast aside on a plate and add the toppings. My favourite is a mixture of blueberries and raspberries with maple syrup and yoghurt. You can use whichever flavour yoghurt you like, but I have preference for honey and ginger. A dollop of maple syrup adds the finishing touch and then you’re all set to tuck in!
