Traditionally french toast is for breakfast or brunch, delicious but loaded in calories since it usually made with cream, brioche bun and a bit of whipped cream. This is a stripped-down version using pantry ingredients.
If you are looking for a more traditional version, then sub out the whole wheat bread with brioche, and the 2% milk with cream.
Don’t forget to experiment with the flavors! We prefer to add more cinnamon and change spices (e.g., cardamom, cinnamon and ginger are good combinations).
Gather all your ingredients and select a container for dunking the bread.
Mix all the ingredients (except for the bread) directly in the container.
Put your pan on medium heat, and add 2 tsp of butter.
Dunk your bread in the mix for about 5 seconds on each side, although time may differ depending on your choice of bread.
Brown each side and serve with chopped fruit and maple syrup if you wish.
After cooking each one, add a little butter before the next.
This recipe makes about 4 french toast (2 servings). To calculate more servings, the ratio is around 1 egg and 2 TBL of milk per 2 slices of bread.
