Recipe: French Toast
French Toast, or as I used to call it eggy bread but this is a much better version! So, with Matilda having this week off after last weeks little mini saga, (see last blog entry) she has a free pass on her lunches and today she requested French Toast.
I’m not gonna lie, I didn’t have the energy to do it at all. But once I checked on the Thermomix Recipe Community for a quick recipe, it gave me motivation to do it for her. After all she had been through a pretty stressful event, she deserved a treat for lunch.
This is a quick and easy recipe which can make up to 8 slices of French Toast. You can use normal store bought sliced bread or make your own! I used plain old white toast bread and it was delish! Matilda gobbled up 4 slices and proclaimed “it was deliciously filling”
What you’ll need:
15gm coconut sugar
1 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp nutmeg
Pinch of salt
1/2 tsp vanilla paste or extract
Butter for frying
Maple syrup, icing sugar and fresh fruit to serve
What to do:
Add all ingredients except for the maple syrup, icing sugar and fruit to the Thermomix
Mix for 30 seconds on speed 4
Pour mixture onto a plate or thermo server plate (best size for dipping bread into!)
Soak slices for 10 seconds each side
Place a knob if butter (for each slice) into a heated fry pan and fry soaked bread until golden brown on each side
Serve with maple syrup, small amount of dusted icing sugar and fresh fruit
This makes about 8 slices of French Toast
One of the earliest versions of french toast has been traced back to the Roman Empire. The name “french toast” was first used in 17th-century England. The recipe — and name — were brought to America by early settlers. In France, the dish is called “pain perdu,” meaning “lost bread.”
Best served hot.
