Tasty Books #3 French Toast

It’s Sunday, I’m tired and I was hungry! I pulled out Rachel Allen’s Home Cooking book, which has a great breakfast section in.


I stumbled her French toast recipe. The French term for this eggy bread creation is pain perdu –very fancy! This toast was perfect for using up some leftover bread that I had. Don’t get me wrong, I know how to make it without a recipe, but I love the idea of using cinnamon in the mix. Cook books are great for giving me little new ideas on what to add or change in recipes that I’ve cooked for years.

Cinnamon French Toast:


25g butter
2 eggs
Ground cinnamon
2 tbsp milk
4 slices of bread
Maple syrup
2 bananas


Heat up a medium frying pan, adding the butter. Meanwhile whisk the eggs, milk and cinnamon in a shallow bowl.


Soak the bread in the egg mixture for a few seconds on each side and place in the hot pan.


Cook for a minute or two until golden brown and place on a warm plate.


I served mine with bananas and maple syrup!
