Mother's Day Breakfast: French Toast

Since my mom is the best mother I could ever have (and I mean that 110%), I made her a Pre-Mother's Day breakfast today. I surprised her with sweet french toast, warm maple syrup, hash browns, bacon, juice, and green tea. She loved it and was so surprised.
This is the recipe I used for the french toast I made her, just saying this will be the best french toast you will ever try. EVER.

Indgredients you'll need to buy (or borrow from your neighbor)---better yet, you can just invite all of the neighborhood mothers for a delicious brunch. Oops got a bit off topic...
So anyways you will need:

  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp nutmeg 
  • 2 tbsp sugar (or maple syrup or honey, depends on what you fancy)
  • 4 tbsp butter
  • 4 eggs
  • 1/4 c milk (whole milk will taste a lot richer)
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla
  • 8 slices stale white bread (tastes a whole lot better than soft bread that will turn out soggy)
  • toppings: warm maple syrup, fruit, nutella, berries, powdered sugar, cream cheese, etc.
French Toast
Recipe adopted from Robert Irvine
  1. In a small bowl (I used a ramekin), combine cinnamon, sugar, and nutmeg
  2. Melt butter over medium heat on a skillet (use a nonstick cooking spray before buttering the skillet to prevent the butter burning)
  3. Whisk together the cinnamon mixture with eggs, milk, and vanilla (make sure ingredients are at room temperature for a richer flavor) and pour into shallow pie dish
  4. Dip bread into egg mixture (whisk the mixture very well so it has a smooth consistency and prevents any excess bits of fried eggs hanging out)
  5. Fry until golden and flip 
This recipe serves 4 people

Also, this recipe tastes delicious with a quick and easy berry compote I created:
  1. Preheat a small saucepan over a stovetop on medium heat
  2. Add 3/4 c of mixed berries
  3. Add ice cubes and 2 teaspoons of sugar (optional)
  4. Stir with wooden spoon and add 1 teaspoon of cornstarch 
  5. Let cool for 10 minutes and serve
This recipe serves 2 people

I am also making another Mother's Day surprise for my mom tomorrow, so expect a blog post on another delicious recipe soon. 
Have a wonderful Mother's Day weekend! Xx
