Hello Breakfast! A lovely breakfast dish, easy but filling. Ordinary French toast can be changed easily to become fancy french bread with a few exciting additions.
First up is fluffy french toast made with desiccated coconut giving it a lovely texture and coastal flavour. Then it’s cooked until golden and drenched with an irresistible, deliciously sweet syrup and to finish it’s sprinkled with shredded coconut. Recipe from Anjum’s Indian Vegetarian Feast which is definitely worth buying.
- Eggs – 1 per person
- Bread – 2 per person
- 200 ml of milk
- 3 tbsp sugar
- 6 tbsp dessicated coconut
- Vegetable oil
Whisk together the eggs, milk and sugar. Spread the coconut on a small plate. Heat oil and butter in a large frying pan, dip one slice of bread in the batter for about 30 seconds and transfer to the plate of coconut pressing gently, turning to coat both sides. Place into the hot pan and repeat with the other slices. Cook over a flame till golden brown on both sides. Add maple syrup for extra sweetness and some raspberries.
Another tasty addition to the french toast mixture is mixing in Indian spices – chilli powder, salt and a pinch of haldal giving it a kick.
Anyone else have any tasty combinations to their breakfast french toast to share?
