Though I’m not a bread person, an exception is made for French Toast (also known as “eggy bread“), which is basically pan-fried bread slices dipped in a beaten egg mixture. I recall French Toast as the only western dish which my mum cooked for us in my childhood. This recipe though, is not my mum’s but from my secondary school’s Home Economics class.

I think my Home Econs teacher will be proud if she knew that after more than a decade after graduating, her student still remembered her recipe vividly! This is an easy and minimalist method for French Toast with only a few key ingredients, all of which are kitchen pantry staples (egg, bread, sugar, oil, milk). It is common to serve French Toast with maple syrup and some berries or fruits on the side; though personally, I enjoy French Toast the most when eating it on its own.

French Toast Recipe

This is a basic yet delicious recipe for French Toast which I grew up on. For a varied and gourmet touch, add 1/2 tsp freshly grated cinnamon and 1/2 tsp vanilla extract into the egg mixture.

Serves: 4 bread slices (2 persons)

Prep Time: 5 mins

Cook Time: 15 mins

Ingredients

  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tbsp caster or super-fine sugar
  • 2 tbsp milk or soy milk
  • 4 slices bread preferably stale (but not spoilt) bread
  • cooking oil 1 tsp at a time; may substitute with a small piece of butter

Directions

  1. Whisk eggs, sugar and milk in a bowl. Dip the bread, one slice at a time, until saturated on both sides.
  2. Heat oil in a cooking pan and either swirl the pan or use a pastry brush to coat the surface of the pan evenly. Fry the bread until both sides are browned. Repeat this step until all the bread slices are cooked.
  3. Drain the excess oil from the French Toast on kitchen paper towels. You may eat it on its own or serve it with a small & thin slice of butter, maple syrup and berries/cherry tomatoes.
