A few of my lovely readers have been complaining that I always do either sinfully rich stuff, or things that are very complicated. So I'm going to try and occassionally post things like this delicious french toast, things that are staples in my home, but I never considered doing a post about.
I'd seen this recipe years ago on Allrecipes, and have been following it ever since. The small amount of flour gives it a fluffiness that just transcends this simple breakfast staple to a whole other level. I almost always caramelise some fruit to go along with it, because I have a major sweet tooth, and a nice [almost] dessert for breakfast just makes for the best day!!
Fluffy French Toast with Caramelised Bananas
Adapted from Allrecipes
2 tbsp flour
1 cup milk
1 pinch salt
1 tsp ground cinnamon
3 tbsp sugar
6 slices bread
- In a medium bowl, mix together the flour, sugar, salt and cinnamon. Whisk in the eggs and the milk until lightly beaten.
- Heat a slightly oiled frying pan over medium heat. Cutting each slice in half, soak in the mixture until saturated, then cook the bread on each side until golden brown. Serve warm
2 bananas, sliced
55 g [1/3 cup] sugar
30 g [2 tbsp / 1/4 stick] butter
- Heat the sugar in the same pan, over medium heat until it has just melted. Add in the butter
- Add the sliced bananas, and cook on both sides until the sugar has become a light brown [about 5 minutes total]. Serve on top of french toast.
