When I was young, it always made my day when I wake up to find that my mum had made French toast for breakfast. Now that I have children of my own, I decided that they too should be introduced to this delicious yet really simple-to-whip-up breakfast. My little boy can eat a whole slice readily while my fussy girl prefers hers to be served with a little bit of golden syrup. The rest of the French toast, needless to say, is easily consumed by hubby and I! 🙂
Here’s my humble version of French toast recipe adapted from my mum’s recipe:
- 6 thin slices of bread (I used Gardenia's white bread)
- 2 eggs
- 2 tablespoons powdered sugar
- 2 tablespoons milk
- oil for frying
- maple/ golden syrup (optional)
- Mix the powdered sugar with milk and add the mixture to the beaten eggs.
- Mix well till all the powdered sugar has dissolved.
- Heat 2 teaspoons of oil in the pan (I used my Happycall pan). You may want to brush the pan with oil to ensure better oil distribution.
- Dip a slice of bread in the egg mixture and ensure that the bread is covered entirely with the mixture but don't over-soak or your toast will be soggy.
- Place the bread in the pan. Using the Happycall pan, you should be able to cook two slices of toast at one time.
- Cover the Happycall pan for about 1 minute and flip the toast over (or when it turns brown, whichever happens first, depending on your stove's fire).
- Cook the other side of the toast till it turns brown as well.
- Remove from pan and place on paper kitchen towels to remove any excess oil.
- Repeat process for all the bread.
- Serve with maple/ golden syrup (optional).
