Sunday mornings are usually great for having a family breakfast. If you want to try something a little different, then this easy french toast recipe that my mom always used to make for us, may be just what you’re looking for.
Growing up, I didn’t actually call it french toast. If I do an exact translation of what we called it, it would be “bread with egg.” There was a sweet and spicy version and today I will be sharing the ‘Mitha Pow’ or ‘Sweet Bread.’
This french toast recipe is actually really simple and only requires four ingredients. And you don’t even need syrup! Our kids love it, so hopefully it’s a hit with your family as well.
Easy French Toast Recipe
Ingredients for French Toast:
– 3 slices of whole grain bread (or any bread you like,) cut each piece in half if you like
– 1 large egg
– 1-2 tbsp of white sugar (depending how sweet you like it
– 1/2 cup of milk (works with almond milk too
– sprinkle of ground cinnamon (optional)
Instruction for French Toast:
1. In a bowl, that’s wide enough to dip a slice of bread, add the egg, milk and sugar. Whisk all three really well.
2. Lightly coat a pan with oil and heat it on medium/low. Dip each slice of bread in the mixture (make sure the sugar isn’t stuck to the bottom of the bowl) and soak completely.
3. It’s best to cook two pieces of bread at a time (or one whole slice). When one side is golden brown, flip the bread to cook the other side. Do that until each slice is done.
4. Then plate and serve, no syrup needed. Serve by itself or with some fruit, eggs or yogurt for a delicious breakfast.
This simple french toast recipe is also great for the lunch box and for breakfast on the go. For more breakfast ideas, you can check out my Breakfast pinterest board.
