In my mind, there’s nothing more comforting than a stack of gorgeously gooey French toast and while it’s certainly a bit of a treat brekkie and not something I would suggest noshing on every day – it’s definitely on high rotation in our household at the moment. 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, and then it’s straight back to the kitchen for pure indulgence…
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 just that..)
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 (it’s a treat after all!) and maple syrup. But, honourable mentions include sliced banana and bacon, raspberries and coconut yoghurt or my hubby’s simple favourite, cinnamon sugar…
