Perfect French Toast - simple ingredients for a delicious quick and easy breakfast.
Have I mentioned how much I love breakfast?
It is definitely my most favourite meal of the day and two of my favourite things to have are my American Style Pancakes and this delicious French Toast. Basically, anything I can drizzle with Maple Syrup.
Ever since I moved to Canada I love that stuff - oatmeal, pancakes, waffles, whatever I can drizzle it on I will.
I usually pick up a big 1-litre jug of the Kirkland Signature Canadian Maple Syrup whenever we go to Costco, which is usually a once a month occurrence, to stock up on various other items. I love that place. But why is it, then no matter how little you actually go in there for, you always, always come out with a full shopping carts worth.
One thing I will say is to make sure whatever maple syrup you use is 100% pure, there are some nasty ones out there that are mixed with other ingredients and those just do not compare in any way.
When starting on Slimming Eats, I was determined to make a French Toast recipe that I could enjoy, without busting my dailys and these really are scrumptious.
The great thing about French Toast is that when it soaks in all the egg mixture it expands in size, making that measly 60g of whole wheat bread a lot more filling too.
No complicated ingredients need to be added to this recipe, just simple bread, eggs, a little milk (you can use a dairy-free alternative), vanilla extract, a pinch of cinnamon.
For sweetening, as per usual with most of my cake recipes. I use Sukrin: 1 which is a great natural tasting sweetener that can be ordered on can be ordered on Amazon. I have tried many different types of sweetener in the past trying to find one that is natural and tastes natural and I think this is it. I usually just use some honey or maple syrup, but it’s nice to know I can now use this and reduce even further. Instead of Sukrin, you can use any sweetener of choice. This is just my preferred option because of the now aftertaste.
In this recipe, however, we are only using 1-2 tsp depending on your sweetness level, which is less than a tablespoon, so we don't need to worry about that at all.
You could totally skip the maple syrup for drizzling over the top, but it really feels decadent along with the plain Greek yoghurt and mixed berries.
I also give a teeny little dusting of icing sugar, so teeny that it will be negligible. It's purely just because it makes this French Toast look pretty.
