Thick slices of Challah bread, soaked in egg beaten with milk and cinnamon, fried in butter and served with delicious Canadian maple syrup.
This doesn’t happen very often, but some days I actually wake up before my alarm goes off. Today was one of those days. I woke up 45 minutes earlier.
What to do with all this extra time?
You make French toast. That’s right. I still had some challah bread that I made over the weekend so I knew this would be a great bread for this.
I don’t normally make French toast, usually if I go out for breakfast I would prefer Belgian waffles instead. However, my sister’s favorite breakfast is French toast. Whenever we go out anywhere for breakfast she always orders it and she makes it quite often too. She probably makes one of the best French toasts out there.
French toast is very easy to make and very quick as well, but it’s one of those breakfast foods that everybody will enjoy. The good thing about French toast is that you can top it with all sort of fruits, maple syrup, jams, sugar or butter. My personal favorite is with maple syrup and fruits. Today I enjoyed my French toast with great Canadian maple syrup (simply the best) and bananas. You know what, it just dawned on me, some nutella would go perfectly with French toast too!!!
- ⅔ cup of milk
- 8 slices of 2 day old bread, preferably thick slices
- 4 eggs
- 2 tsp cinnamon
- maple syrup
- fresh berries (optional)
- In a bowl beat the eggs, milk and cinnamon together. Pour into a shallow bowl.
- Take each slice of bread and dip it into the egg mixture, and allow the bread to soak up some of the mixture. In a large skillet, melt a little butter on medium high heat. Add 2 or 3 slices of bread into the skillet or as many as you can fit and fry the bread until brown on both sides.
- Serve hot with butter, maple syrup and fresh berries. Delicious.
