Tasteful Tuesday – Fabulous French Toast


You know when you wake up one morning, and you’re all like, “I’m gonna be indulgent today.”?

Wait until the next time you feel like that, and then try out this recipe. Or if you’re like me, and you believe in every day indulgence (because well fed people with happy tummies smile more than their carrot consuming friends) then try it right . now …

Now I know that it’s common practice in Europe and America to make sweet french toast, but here in South Africa there’s loads of people who turn their noses up at the idea, and are more inclined to say “Pass the tomato sauce” (thats ketchup for you American kids) rather than “Pass the maple syrup”… I was like that too, until I tried making french toast this way, and now I’m hooked.


Fabulous French Toast:
• Thick, day old white bread
• cinnamon
• nutmeg
• eggs (1 egg for every 3 or 4 slices of bread)
• milk
• banana, sliced
• syrup
• icing sugar to garnish

1 || Mix your eggs with a dash of milk.

2 || Sprinkle in a little nutmeg and a bit of cinnamon. (I love cinnamon, so I put loads in, and then add some more later too.)

3 || Put a non-stick pan on the stove and turn it up to medium heat.

4 || Soak each of your slices of bread in the egg and spice mixture, and place them in the pan. Two at a time should fit.

5 || Flip them over after a coupe of minutes to check whether the first side is cooking. If not, then flip it back onto the first side and wait a little longer. Repeat with the other side.

6 || Pop onto a plate and put the banana right on top. Dust with a little icing sugar, and sprinkle with some extra cinnamon if you love it as much as I do…

7 || When you’re ready to eat, pour syrup over the whole lot and enjoy!
