I know I’ve posted a French Toast recipe before, but this Rachel Allen one is so beautifully simple. So simple that anyone in the family could take it upon themselves to make it for, say Mother’s Day….
This is my go-to book for simple quick recipes that taste of the flavours you’d expect of the dish. And with “traditional” French Toast you need not add anything except the 4 main ingredients. Then you can add all the fancy blueberries and maple syrup afterwards.
Mind you if you try to look up “French Toast Recipes” there’s a myriad to chose from. This Guardian Article is excellent and very informative about alternatives if you chose to follow a different path to mine- so to speak….
Rachel Allen’s Simple French Toast
2 eggs (as fresh as possible)
2 tablespoons of cream or milk- use the cream.
Put a heavy frying pan on the hob to heat and add some of the butter. Whisk the eggs and cream together in a shallow dish big enough to take the slices of bread.
Soak a slice of bread briefly in the egg mixture then turn over to soak the other side. Lift up to drain off the excess liquid then place gently in the hot pan. You may need to turn down the heat. Let it cook away until you start to see the bottom turning golden.
NOTE: I usually make twice this recipe! But we are always hungry at breakfast
NOTE2: as a disclaimer- my wonderful daughter actually made these, I just watched and photographed. She insisted, it was my birthday after all!
NOTE3: On the day I treated myself to a dollop of cream, some raspberries and slices of banana.
