Who says French toast could not be a quick brunch? Traditionally, French toast is soaked in its milk mixture overnight. I have made French toast a few minutes after soaking the bread into the milk mixture maybe three times now. So far, people have loved it!
So now I’m sharing this quick and skinny recipe with all of you.
All you would need are:
1 thick slice of bread (I just made a loaf in my bread maker the other day, yay)
1 medium egg
¼ tsp ground cinnamon
½ cup vanilla almond milk
1 tsp unsalted butter
1 tbsp pure maple syrup
In a small bowl, whisk the egg, add the milk, then the cinnamon. Give it a good whisk. Dip the bread into the milk mixture until both sides are well-soaked. Let stand for about a minute.
Prepare a nonstick pan, melt butter on medium low heat. Put in the soaked bread and let it cook for 5 minutes or until that side is golden brown. Turn and let the other side brown.
My toast was ready in about 10 minutes. I pour a tablespoon of maple syrup over it and also sliced a banana. I must say I enjoyed it very much, especially with a cup of freshly-brewed Columbian style coffee.
Easy, right? No oven needed either. When you make some, I really hope you enjoy yours as much as I did!
Note: Restaurant French toasts have at least 500 calories, without the syrup. My calorie count already includes the syrup.
