I love how easy it is to make French toast. Thrown together with every day ingredients at home, it makes for a luxurious Sunday morning treat that goes so well with any kind of fruit, especially with a drizzle of maple syrup. I love the hint of cinnamon as well, but if you’re not a big fan of it you can leave it out.

To serve 3, or 2 very hungry people
Prep time: 5 minutes
Cook time: about 10-15 minutes

1 cup of milk
1 egg
3-4 slices of white bread
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
butter, softened
fruit, berries, extra butter and maple syrup to serve if desired

Stir together milk, egg and cinnamon until well mixed in a bowl. Soak each piece of bread individually in the egg/milk mixture for a few minutes or until the bread is quite soft. Heat about a tablespoon of softened butter on high heat in a non stick fry pan until bubbly (but don’t allow to burn). Fry for about 2 minutes on each side until golden and crisp. Fry each piece of bread, adding extra butter to the pan if necessary. If you have a larger pan, you can fry a few pieces at a time. Keep cooked french toast no a plate in a warm oven to keep warm before serving. Serve with sliced fruit, extra butter and maple syrup if desired.

I especially love French toast with fresh blueberries and maple syrup. I had them here with blueberries I picked myself with some friends in Bilpin. They also go really well with these honey garlic glazed sausages.

This French toast also goes nicely paired with my favourite easy blueberry icecream.

Here’s to long lazy weekends with scrumptious breakfasts ๐Ÿ™‚
