Girl wants French toast, girl makes some. These are SO easy to do and takes too little time to do.
(And if you live in Malaysia, guess what, I didn't even use any fancy bread. Gardenia wholemeal slices are my homegirls.)

What you need:
  • Two slices bread; I use wholemeal bread as that's what I had in my kitchen, plus wholemeal will hold together better even when soaked
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla essence
  • 2-3 cinnamon sticks
  • Oil and/or butter
How to make 'em:

1. Break eggs in a bowl (I used a deep plate), then add milk and vanilla essence. Beat well using a fork, then add cinnamon sticks, and then beat the mixture a little bit more (it's harder to beat with the cinnamon sticks around, so feel free to use cinnamon powder if you like a stronger cinnamon taste).



2. Soak bread in mixture for about a minute on one side of bread, then flip and soak for a further minute; I divided my egg mixture into two plates to soak my breads quicker.


3. While the bread is soaking, heat up about half a teaspoon of oil (I use extra virgin olive oil) and half a teaspoon of butter in a flat pan on medium heat; feel free to use either oil or butter only, or mix them as I did. When the butter has melted, transfer soaked bread into pan and let it brown.

I like my French toasts to be soft on the inside and slightly crispy on the outside so I had to play with the heat and the timing of browning a bit.

4. Cut the bread into halves diagonally, arrange on a plate, drizzle loads and LOADS of maple syrup onto them, and add your favourite sweet and sour fruit pieces on the side.
I'm obsessed with super sweet grapes so I balanced the sweetness with some strawberries.

Ready to eat!
