French Toast

3 Apr

Two slices of french toast with maple syrup.

  • 2 to 3 slices of whole wheat bread cut into 3/4 inch thick (I used bread from Angie’s.)   
  • 2 large eggs, beaten
  • 1/4 cup skim milk (or substitute with kefir)
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon 
  • 1 tsp real vanilla extract
  • a tiny pinch of salt
  • 2 tbsps unsalted butter
  • white sugar
  • maple syrup

In a shallow bowl, mix the eggs, milk, cinnamon, salt and vanilla extract. Combine well.  Thoroughly soak each slice of bread into the batter.

Add the butter to a frying pan. Heat the pan on high. Once the butter has melted, add in the soaked slices of bread. Turn down heat if the pan is getting too hot. Cook for about 2 to 3 minutes on each side.  Right before flipping, sprinkle a light layer of sugar onto the bread. Right after flipping, sprinkle a light layer of sugar onto the bread slices.

Serve hot with maple syrup.

For a twist on the classic French Toast, try making Banana French Toast.
