Happy Monday, Lovers and Friends !
I was in Kingston a couple weekends ago, and had some amazing french toast at a breakfast place there. It was so amazing that I knew I’d have to try recreating it once I got home. It was made with apple cider bread, served with orange slices, and apple cider creme fraiche, with maple syrup on the side if you wanted to use it. Absolutely divine. Luckily, while I was still in town, I picked up a loaf of the amazing apple cider bread to bring back home with me.
My french toast isn’t exactly the same as what I had at the restaurant, but I still loved it ! I think next time I will add more spices to bring out some flavours and compliment others a bit more, and maybe use one egg and one egg white instead of two eggs. I hope you try it out, apple cider bread or not, and love it as much as I did 🙂
Apple Cider Bread French Toast
Makes enough for 1 serving
2 thick slices apple cider bread
1/4 cup vanilla soy milk (feel free to use your favourite milk)
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp nutmeg
1/2 tbsp vanilla extract
Preheat a skillet to medium heat, once it is preheated, put in a tiny bit of butter.
In a shallow dish, whisk together the eggs, milk, spices, and vanilla.
Put your bread slices in the mixture and allow them to soak for a few minutes, turn them over, and allow them to soak on the other side for an additional few minutes.
Place the bread into your pre-heated skillet, and allow the toast to cook until browned on bottom, flip and cook until the other side is nicely browned.
Slide your finished french toast onto a cute donut plate, and top with desired toppings. I topped mine with some strawberry greek yogurt (my new obsession) and fresh strawberries, put a little ramekin of maple syrup on my plate for dipping, and had a couple of pieces of tempeh on the side.
