I seldom have this kind of breakfast at home..i mean to me this is kind of luxurious breakfast. Very often my breakfast is really simple..i am a noodle person but i cant really take noodles in the morning, i find that a little heavy for me, so often breakfast is just slices of bread with jam, oat or milo or just a ham egg sandwich or a simple wrap..and although french toast is very common and simple to make, i rarely make it at home. The only time i have french toast is only at hotel breakfast. Most of the time breakfast is just me alone..so just go simple but nowadays have been making smoothies, easy smoothies that just perk up my mornings.
Have some homemade bread and berries at home so on this day treated myself to something other than my ordinary breakfast. I cut the bread a little more thicker than usual to soak up the egg mixture, cook them and immediately coat them with cinnamon sugar. Again cinnamon sugar? hehe..as if i've not gotten enough of cinnamon sugar in my doughnuts muffins earlier. Anyway, the below portion is quite filling, a little heavy for me alone..would be nice if i can share this with someone..:D
|Place the hot french toasts in cinnamon sugar immediately after cooking and coat them completely|
Recipe ( from curtisstone.com ) has been scaled down to serve 1 or 2
Ingredients for berry sauce
1/3 cup of mixed blueberries and raspberries
Mix the berries and sugar in a pot and cook at medium heat, stirring occasionally and let it simmer for about 5 mins. Remove from heat and leave aside.
2 slices of thick bread/brioche
1 tbsp of butter
slightly less than 1/4 cup of sugar
1 tsp cinnamon
creme fraiche ( i used greek yogurt ) and some fresh berries to serve along.
1. Using a fork, beat eggs in a large flat plate to blend. Place the slices of bread in the eggs and let stand for about 5 mins, or until the eggs are absorbed, turning the bread slices once.
2. Melt the butter on a pan on medium heat, add in the bread slices and cook for 2mins or golden brown on the outside. Meanwhile, stir the cinnamon and sugar in another large plate. Immediately place the hot french toast in the cinnamon sugar and coat completely. Top with some creme fraiche or yogurt and spoon the berry sauce over the french toast. Scatter some fresh berries over and serve immediately.
