Custardy French Toast
What you first need to do is go and run yourself a nice hot bath, I assume you'll be making this on a lazy sunday morning, after a nice lie in.
Whilst it is running, take yourself down to the kitchen and get breakfast going.
Custardy French Toast - Serves 1
2 fresh eggs
approx 100ml milk
approx 100ml double cream
1/2 tsp cinamonn
dash of vanilla extract
2 tablespoons of granulated or brown sugar
2 thick slices of good quality white bread
Whisk together all the ingredients for the custard in a shallow pie dish or wide bowl. Dunk in your pieces of bread so that they are nicely covered. Place a heavy plate on top of the dish to submerge the bread further. If it doesn't submerge add a bit more milk.
Then you need to leave it as it is and go and give yourself a nice soak in the bath whilst your bread has a nice soak in the custard.
Leave for about 20 - 30 minutes.
Heat up a nonstick pan and add a small knob of butter, fry each slice of bread for about 3-4 minutes on each side til golden brown and a bit crispy, keep one slice warm whilst you fry the other.
Serve with a large mug of tea and maple syrup, your favourite berries or maybe a bit of creme fraiche or yoghurt?
