Cinnamon French Toast

I tried this recipe from my Marie Claire “spicy” collection. I love cinnamon so I thought this might make a nice breakfast.

What you need:

  • 5 thick slices of white bread, crusts removed
  • 1 egg
  • 1T sugar
  • 1t ground cinnamon
  • 125ml milk
  • butter for frying

Options to serve:

  • plain yoghurt
  • fresh seasonal fruit
  • maple syrup
  • 2T finely chopped pecans

Cut each slice of bread in half to make rectangles. Beat the egg, sugar and cinnamon in a bowl and then add the milk. Melt the butter in the frying pan over medium heat. Dip the bread into the sweet milk mixture, covering both sides. Sprinkle one side of each piece of bread and gently fry, sugar side down, for 3 minutes or until golden.
Sprinkle tops with a little sugar and flip over. Cook until golden.

Serve with yoghurt, fruit, maple syrup and a sprinkle of pecans.

I used golden syrup instead of maple; as I find maple way too sweet. The strawberries cut the sweetness and the grape gave it a nice flavour. This is something I will definitely make again.
