Hello! Today has been miserably cold and rainy in Dublin so nothing madly exciting going on with me. I decided to upload a recipe of one of my favourite weekend breakfasts, french toast. I never have time in the mornings during the week to make anything elaborate for breakfast unfortunately as it’s my favourite meal time. I love all of the foods used for making breakfast so every Saturday and Sunday I like to make more of an effort. So here is my french toast recipe, hope you enjoy it!
What you will need:
A Splash of milk
4 slices of bread
2 teaspoons of cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon of nutmeg
1 teaspoon of vanilla essence
1 teaspoon of sugar
Okay so first you want to crack your eggs into a mixing bowl. Next add milk, I usually add an amount equivalent to that of the egg whites (If that makes sense). Add the cinnamon, nutmeg and vanilla essence and whisk everything together until well blended.
The Vanilla essence is only 1 spoon! Woops!
Next, take a shallow dish and pour the mixture in. You should be able to lay a slice of bread flat in the dish.
Grease a pan with butter and place on a medium heat. Once it is hot enough, dip the slices of bread into the mixture allowing them to soak for 30 seconds on each side. Then lift them out carefully so they don’t rip and allow the excess mixture to drip off.
Then just pan fry until golden brown, flipping occasionally.
Add nutella, strawberries or whatever your favourite topping is and then chow down with a massive pot of tea!
