Fabulous French toast

Happy afternoon!

I’ve been experimenting a little in the kitchen, and was looking for ways to use the egg replacer which I bought for making pancakes. I came across a recipe for French toast and thought ‘why the hell not?’ I haven’t eaten French toast since I was little and thought it might be a nice change from pancakes. The recipe calls for thick bread, which I didn’t have at the time so I just used medium bread and it still came out okay. Like the OP my egg replacer is Orgran No Egg which is relatively cheap at Holland & Barrett and lasts for ages, so it’s a great buy. The batter is extremely easy to make and can be whipped up very quickly. I cut each slice of bread into quarters so I could dip in the batter easily (as I used a measuring jug). The recipe suggests to leave the bread to soak for 10 seconds each side but I just submerged several bits of bread at once, resulting in a couple of broken bits but nothing that wasn’t still edible. I also added a little maple syrup to the batter. Once cooked the toast has a golden exterior with a doughy centre and they were delicious! I finished the toast with a slathering of maple syrup and felt compelled to eat the entire thing in five minutes.

I have made this several times since, and will continue to do so because it is just so tasty. I really need to remember to buy thick bread next time to make it properly.

Hope your day is going well,
