I was making french toast every morning while we were in Brunei but still couldn't get enough of it, so we had it for breakfast again this morning !
Instead of the usual maple syrup, I made a mixed berry sauce to go with the toast & the girls loved it.
8 slices day old bread
3 large eggs
2 Tbsp honey, warmed
1 Cup whipping cream
Beat eggs, honey & whipping cream till well combined.
Remove crust from bread & cut it into half diagonally. Dip bread into the egg mixture & let is soak through, remove & set aside.
Melt butter in a large frying pan, place bread slices into the pan, let it cook until golden brown on both sides. Remove from heat & serve warm with maple syrup or fruits.
I've served my french toast with berry sauce today & this is my version of it :
250g frozen mixed berries ( red currants, blueberries, raspberries, blackberries)
60g caster sugar
Combine the frozen berries with caster sugar in a small pan over medium heat. Let the mixture boil, turn down the heat & let the sauce simmer till slightly thickened. I didn't bother to strain the berries as I like them with seeds.
