It's what's for Breakfast: French Toast for 1 (or 2 kids)

This is a really basic French toast recipe; it serves one adult or two young children. You can double or triple the amounts for a larger group but I do like to have a recipe pared down to a single portion, rather than dividing a larger portion recipe. Most recipes I've seen online serve 6-8 people but that doesn't work very well for when you're not cooking for the whole family.


Basic French Toast



Basic French Toast


Custard mixture

- 1 egg
- 1/4 cup milk/cream mixture (1/4 cup = 4 tbsp; I used 1 tbsp cream and 3 tbsp whole milk)
- 1 tsp cane sugar
- 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
- Pinch of salt
- Dash of ground cinnamon

- 2 slices day old bread, or lightly toasted fresh bread

- Softened butter (optional)
- Canola spray (like Pam)

- Whipped cream, agave/maple syrup, berries


Very lightly butter each side of the bread and place in a shallow dish. If you use too much butter, the bread will not soak up the custard mixture, so you should use just enough to achieve a crunchy effect upon frying.


Pour the custard mixture over the bread, then carefully flip it to soak both sides (it will probably soak up all of the liquid). If you're using very soft, fresh bread, it will likely fall apart, so I recommend lightly toasting it, should this be the case.



Soak the slices in the custard mixture


Spray a pan with cooking spray and fry bread on both sides until golden brown (be careful because it burns easily). I like to serve this with whipped cream, agave syrup and fresh fruit.


I still have to post the recipes for last week's trials in the kitchen- pot roast in red wine sauce with root vegetables, New England Clam Chowder, and South African Fudge.
