Since I moved to France, I got used to a busier life, student life, with lectures beginning at 8, waking up at 6.30 or sooner to get ready and take the subway, heating something to put in the lunchbox… I learned new things, enjoyed my life here, but for a while, I just forgot how I loved spending time in the kitchen every morning and cooking something warm. I couldn’t even remember since when I started having the same breakfast everyday: toasts + jam + nutella + milk, maybe 6 or 7 months, that was kinda crazy ! So today, benefiting my 1 week off, I just simply want to make a change, not something special but these buttery and soft French Toasts are truly a great treat for breakfast. You can enjoy them with butter, maple syrup (or any kind of syrup you like) or some fresh fruits to bring you more energy for a long day 😉
Ingredients (for 6 slices of bread)
6 slices of bread
1 large egg
100 ml fresh milk
1/2 tsp white sugar
1/4 tsp salt
20 grams unsalted butter
1. In a large mixing bowl or a deep plate, mix together the egg, milk, sugar and salt.
2. Heat a frying pan over medium high heat, melt the butter. Gently dip each slice of bread in the egg mixture in 20 secs and flip it until both sides are soaked in the mixture.
3. Put the slices of bread on the frying pan or a large skillet, brown both sides. Serve hot with butter, syrup or fresh fruits.
Have fun making these warm and delicious French Toasts and don’t ever forget to have breakfast even you’re busy ^^
Love, Trang Quynh
