A Little Bit French-
Bonjou, mes amis! I had fun with the title of today’s post with a little bit French. I hope you had a lovely weekend. Ours was very busy and the weather was teasing us with warmer temps, But we know a cool front is just around the corner. We did take advantage of the weather and we spent time outside working in the yard. Why am I greeting you in French and rambling about the weekend weather…….it’s to ease you into today’s incredibly super simple recipe.
Before I dive in though, did you know that French Toast did not originate in France? It’s actually from Belgium. It is called pain perdu in French. French toast always makes me think of my Mother. She used to make it for us (my brother and I) before she went to work . She would put it in the oven on warm and we would eat it before school (covered in powdered sugar) . Now I’m writing about my mother, why? Because she is coming to visit! I am so excited. It’s been three years since I have been able to hug her in person.
Just one more thing, a very important one too. We have a winner ( all winners for my giveaways are selected through the rafflecopter system) The April Showers giveaway winner is Rosey from Mail4Rosey! Please join me in congratulating Rosey.
What You Need
3/4 cup lactose free milk ( almond milk is great in this recipe)
1 tsp maple flavoring ( or 2 Tbsp maple syrup)
8 thick slices of French bread
Non stick cooking spray
Cinnamon and Sugar
Before You Start– Spray skillet with non stick cooking spray
Lets Make It!
Combine eggs, milk, and maple syrup in a mixing bowl and beat with a whisk until frothy. Heat prepared skillet over medium high heat. Dip each piece of bread into the egg mixture to soak/coat ( but not make soggy) let excess drip off ,then place into the hot skillet. Continue until all bread is in the skillet ( you may need to do this in batches if you have a smaller skillet) .Fry the bread until golden brown flipping occasionally with the spatula to create evening browning.
Serve hot with your favorite toppings
