French toast is slices of bread soaked in a mixture of egg and milk with some simple seasoning and fried on a greased pan over low heat until crisp. French toasts origin is rooted in the Roman Empire. It has two variations a simple sweet dish, and a savoury dish. It is served hot with toppings of personal choice.
This recipe shows traditional simple sweet dish variation which turns out delicious and will surely satisfy your sweet tooth in a healthy way.
French toast is rich in proteins, calcium and fiber. I have used honey in place of maple syrup thus enhancing it’s nutritional value further and tastes best too. Additional berries can be added as toppings.
Generally served as breakfast or snack.
Make a batter by beating egg, milk, cinnamon, sugar and salt in a bowl.
Heat a pan on medium flame and grease it will butter.
Dip the bread into the batter twice, that is each slice needs to be flipped twice so that it gets nicely soaked into the batter on each side.
Immediately transfer the soaked bread into the pan one by one and lower the flame, cover and cook for 3 minutes each on both sides until the bread becomes nice golden brown in colour and turns crispy.
Remove the cooked bread into a plate.
Pour honey evenly on all slices. That's it, serve hot.
- Any bread french, Italian, whole wheat or white can be used, tastes best with white milk bread.
- It is optional to use Maple syrup in place of honey.
- If you don't have cinnamon powder then saffron or cardamom powder or vanilla can be used as an alternative.
- A savoury dish of the French toast can be made by adding only eggs, salt and black pepper, skip the rest of the ingredients for this.
