French Toast

Last week I was in Paris. I want to go back! Why is it that holidays are always over way too soon? I walked along the Champs-Élysées all decked out in Christmas decoration, climbed up the Eiffel tower, paraded around the parks of Versailles, admired the Mona Lisa together with about 50 chinese tourists and enjoyed awesome and heavy food. Croissants in the morning, boeuf bourgignon and cheese plates in the evening. Heaven! :)

All that food spoiled me so much and actually gave me a sugar high for a couple of days so that I’m craving sugar right now. It’s like withdrawal. So I had to eat crêpes all weekend long and since I can’t eat them every day, I switched to french toast yesterday night. It’s actually very easy to make and very fast as well. A really good alternative to my usual breakfast palette of crêpes and pancakes.

French Toast
idea adapted from Technicolor Kitchen

 4-5 slices of American sandwich bread
1 egg
120ml milk
1 teaspoon of cinnamon
1 tablespoon of sugar + more for sprinkling
1 tablespoon of butter
maple syrup

First step: Heat a big pan to medium heat. Mix the egg, milk, cinnamon and tablespoon of sugar in a deep plate. Drench the slices of bread in the mixture from both sides. Set aside.

Second step: Melt half of the butter in the pan, if you can only fit half of the slices, else add all of the butter. Sprinkle one side of the slices with sugar and put them sugar down into the pan. Let them fry for about three minutes.

Third step: Sprinkle sugar on top of the slices in the pan before turning them around when they are a golden brown on the bottom. Let fry for another 2-3 minutes then serve immediately with maple syrup. Repeat for all of the slices.
