In my mind, there’s nothing more comforting than a stack of gorgeously gooey French toast.
While this dish certainly isn’t something I’d nosh on everyday, Sunday mornings currently involve a lazy stroll to the corner coffee shop, followed by a trip to the local bakery for a loaf of fresh gluten-free sourdough. Then… it’s straight back to the kitchen for a little brekkie treat.
LUXE / HEALTH French Toast
1/2 cup milk of your choice
1 tbsp. rapadura sugar
4–6 slices thickly cut sourdough (I’ve found the BEST gluten-free loaf at our local, but any bread will do)
Marscapone or coconut yoghurt, to serve
Maple syrup (make sure you buy 100% pure – the regular supermarket rubbish is often full of junk!)
Butter or coconut oil
- In a large bowl, whisk together the eggs, milk and sugar until smooth. Then, dunk each slice of bread in the egg mixture for a few seconds until it’s super soggy.
- Heat a grill pan or frying pan on medium-high heat and add a dollop of butter or coconut oil and swirl around. Note: I like to have two pans going at once because I’m simply too impatient to wait!
- Fry each slice of bread for 3–4 minutes on each side until golden brown and serve while hot.
- Current fave toppings include fresh raspberries with marscapone and maple syrup. But, honourable mentions include sliced banana and bacon, raspberries and coconut yoghurt or my hubby’s simple favourite, cinnamon sugar…
I don't know about you, but during summer, I begin to crave lighter dishes for dinner...
Craving something salty? These purple carrot wedges are the perfect snack.
There is nothing more satisfying than this tasty bone marrow dish, hot out of the oven!
