- 2 eggs
- 125 ml (½ cup) milk
- 30 ml (2 tbsp) brown sugar
- 2.5 ml (½ tsp) vanilla
- 1 ml (¼ tsp) ground cinnamon
- 4 slices whole-wheat bread Or raisin bread
- 30 ml (2 tbsp) butter or non-hydrogenated margarine
1. In a shallow bowl or baking dish, add the eggs, milk, brown sugar, vanilla and cinnamon. Mix with a fork.
Variation: Add extra flavour by grating the zest of one orange into the mixture.
2. Place the bread slices in the egg mixture, then turn them over so they absorb all the liquid.
3. Melt the butter or margarine in a large frying pan over medium heat and put in the bread slices. Cook for about 3 minutes on each side, or until the bread is golden brown.
Tip: If all four slices can’t fit into your frying pan at once, make the French toast in two batches.
