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.
|Recipe adopted from Robert Irvine|
- In a small bowl (I used a ramekin), combine cinnamon, sugar, and nutmeg
- Melt butter over medium heat on a skillet (use a nonstick cooking spray before buttering the skillet to prevent the butter burning)
- 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
- 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)
- Fry until golden and flip

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

Have a wonderful Mother's Day weekend! Xx
