yesterday afternoon while catching up on some tv shows i saw an advert for a french toast special at some restaurant... needless to say i couldn't get the idea of french toast out of my mind so i decided to make some for dinner! the traditional milk and eggs mixture tends to make the bread quite soggy, so here's my recipe that works even for thin bread to keep good texture. it's also sweet enough with the dipping mixture and optional fruit to not have to add more calories with some syrup. then you can add some whipped cream instead. ;)
1/4 cup flour
1 cup milk
1/2 tsp nutmeg
1 tsp ground cinnamon
1 tsp vanilla extract
1-1/2 tbs granulated sugar
6 slices bread
bananas or other fruit
1. in a large bowl, whisk or use a hand mixer to mix together the flour, milk, eggs, nutmeg, cinnamon, vanilla and sugar until smooth.
2. heat a griddle or frying pan on medium heat. if desired, lightly oil the pan's surface (i use pam).
3. dip each slice of bread in the mixture until saturated. cook each side until golden brown.
4. optional - top with powdered sugar, fruit and some whipped cream. serve with syrup if desired.
makes 3 servings - enjoy! =)
