These are perfect for a breakfast or brunch. A classic French Toast, with a hint of spice, rolled in cinnamon sugar.
During the week, like many of you, Our breakfast usually comprises of a quick cereal with milk or muesli with yoghurt. So on some weekends, I like to spoil Imran with a proper breakfast, and this morning I busied myself in the kitchen whipping up an old favourite of Imrans’ , the French Toast.
But sometimes making the same old, same old….can be a tad bit boring right? 😉 So with this in mind, I slightly altered my usual way of making these, by adding a slight touch of spices, which is absolutely Optional, this dish can be prepared with just the usual salt and pepper seasoning. Then I thought let me give it a bit of a Doughnut taste, and rolled them in cinnamon sugar. All that’s left to say is…A HIT with Imran.? ? ?
So here I have penned down my recipe, and I hope you do give it a try and surprise your family, the next time you want to prepare them a special breakfast or brunch, teamed up with any kind of extra fry-ups you may like. Looking forward to your comments below.
Happy Breakfast Fry-Up
(? FOODEVA MARSAY ? )
Cinnamon Sugar French Toast (A Foodeva Marsay recipe)
3 Extra Large Eggs
1/4 teaspoon Baking Powder
2 Tablespoon Water
A Good pinch of Chillie Powder(optional)
A pinch of Cumin Powder(optional)
1/4 teaspoon crushed dry chillies(optional)
Salt and Pepper to taste
~whisk together the eggs and spices
~ dissolve the baking powder in the water, and add to the egg mixture and whisk well.
~Remove the crusts off 6-8 slices of bread, I used Brown bread, but white bread would work just as well.
~roll these crust-less breads flat, using a rolling pin.
~brush the one side well with the egg mixture, this allows for the bread to hold shape when rolled.
~Roll up the bread, like for swiss roll, and dip the entire roll into the egg mixture, coat well all around and the rounded sides as well.
~ shallow fry in oil, that’s medium hot, turning a few times to ensure its lovely golden brown all around.
~when done, cool slightly and roll in cinnamon sugar, prepared as below.
Cinnamon Sugar (Foodeva Marsay)
*1/2 Cup Castor Sugar
*1/4 teaspoon cinnamon powder
**the excess of this may be stored in an airtight container, in a dry cool cupboard, for sprinkling on pancakes or doughnuts.
All that’s left to do now is sit back and enjoy with your favourite cuppa warm beverage.
