French toast recipe

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! 🙂

A basic French toast recipe
Ingredients
  • 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)
Instructions
  1. Mix the powdered sugar with milk and add the mixture to the beaten eggs.
  2. Mix well till all the powdered sugar has dissolved.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. Place the bread in the pan. Using the Happycall pan, you should be able to cook two slices of toast at one time.
  6. 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).
  7. Cook the other side of the toast till it turns brown as well.
  8. Remove from pan and place on paper kitchen towels to remove any excess oil.
  9. Repeat process for all the bread.
  10. Serve with maple/ golden syrup (optional).
Notes
1. Add a dash of cinnamon powder or 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract for variety.
2. French toast is usually prepared with stale (but not spoilt!) bread but I used fresh bread and it still turned out fine.
