Simple French Toast Recipe For 2

Happy New Year guys!

Just like with everything after Crimbo, (eating healthily, exercising etc.) I'm easing back in to blogging gently.

Although with blogging, I never actually meant to take time off, it just kinda happened. I could blame it on being busy, but putting all Christmas shenanigans and various other plans aside, I did have time to blog, I just didn't want to. I felt lethargic and drained of energy which is probably linked to my SAD, although my mood was fine so WHO KNOWS.

Anyway, I'm going to start off with a super easy, super simple recipe for my new favourite weekend breakfast; french toast, or eggy bread as it's also known (although that doesn't sound half as appetising, does it?)

It's a really quick recipe to follow and makes 2, ready-to-smother-in-whatever-toppings-you-fancy portions of deliciously crisp on the outside, soft on the inside french toast.

You will need
- 4 thick slices of soft, white bread (fresh bakery bread works best)
- 1 large egg
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
- 70ml semi-skimmed or whole milk
- knob of butter (for frying)

1. In a shallow dish beat the egg, vanilla extract, ground cinnamon and milk together until fully combined.

2. Dip bread into the egg mixture, ensuring the bread is well coated on both sides.

3. On a medium heat, melt the butter in a large frying pan or skillet.

4. Place bread in the pan (as many slices as you can fit - you may have to cook it in two lots) and fry until golden brown on both sides, flipping the bread where necessary.

5. Top with whatever takes your fancy (anything you'd put on a pancake will work). I had this on Christmas morning with maple syrup and blueberries and it tasted AMAZING. Next on my to try list is Nutella and strawberries - yum.


Note: Once you've got the basic recipe down to a fine art you can experiment with different bread, spices or even milk substitutes (I've heard almond milk works a treat).
