One of my favourite things to do is to wake up on the weekend and make brunch. Not only does it start my morning off in a productive way, but who doesn’t like starting the weekend off with some delicious food! As a kid, I was pretty excited to make the transition from pancakes to French toast – I suddenly felt a whole lot more grown up. This recipe is actually incredibly easy to execute, and French toast always presents so well – it’s a very easy meal to make look sophisticated! It’s a great way to use up bread that is starting to get old.
- 4 pieces of brioche/sour-dough (any bread will do though, even just stock-standard sandwich bread)
- 2 eggs
- 1/2 c milk
- 1 t cinnamon
- 1 t vanilla essence
- bacon, to serve
- maple syrup, to serve
- banana, to serve
- Mix the eggs, milk, cinnamon and vanilla essence into a shallow bowl.
- Dip and soak each piece of bread into the mixture, flipping it over to make sure that it is well saturated.
- Fry each piece of bread in a medium to hot pan with butter to ensure it doesn’t stick.
- Flip after a few minutes to cook on both sides.
- Garnish with bacon, banana, maple syrup and additional cinnamon.
