French Toast


serves 2-4

recipe adapted from Better Homes & Gardens New Junior Cookbook

  • 4 slices bread (stale bread is great for this!)
  • 2 eggs
  • ½ cup milk
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla extract
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 2 dashes ground cinnamon
  • 2 tablespoons butter, plus more for serving
  • syrup, for serving
  • fresh fruit, for serving
  • powdered sugar, for serving

In a bowl, beat eggs with a fork until eggs are frothy. Add milk, vanilla, salt, and cinnamon and beat until well combined. Pour mixture into a pie plate.

Put 1/4 of the butter in a skillet over medium-low heat.

Dip one slice of bread into egg mixture, then turn it over to coat the other side. Let sit for a few second and put bread into the skillet. Cook until bottom is golden brown, about 2-3 minutes. Flip and cook the other side for another 2-3 minutes. Repeat until all the french toast is cooked.

Serve warm topped with maple syrup, butter, fresh fruit and a light sprinkling of powdered sugar.
