Long back I made a post about 25+ breakfast items that Indians have. Out of that long list, french toast has a special place in my heart. My mum used to make french toast for me for evening snacks but never in breakfast!
After moving out, I had a hard time in getting used to South Indian food. One good thing about Hyderabad is there are abundance of restaurants in different price levels. Over weekends I used to order breakfast from many different places and later I started making quick recipes improvising the dish with the flavors that I liked most.
I had french toast in many places, they tasted more or less the same. One restaurant served it with fruit jam and yogurt, that was a different experience!
If somebody ever asks how I would like my french toast- here is the recipe.
Things you need:
- 4 pieces of Bread (Preferably Milk bread)
- 2 eggs
- 1/2 cup milk
- 1 tsp cinnamon powder
- 3 tbsp sugar
- Vanilla essence
Crack two eggs, beat them well. Add milk, sugar, 2 drops of vanilla essence and a teaspoon of cinnamon powder.
Most of the places I have tried do not use cinnamon powder. I think it really adds an extra bit in the flavor.
- Brush the piece of bread with the egg mix on both sides. The mix should coat the bread but not make it a soggy mess.
- Heat a pan on medium heat and add a little bit of the butter. Butter enhances the flavors even further but you can use any flavorless oil in place of butter here.
- Toast the bread until light brown.
French toast is ready to be served. Serve it maple syrup/nutella/fresh fruits or as it is!
