Since I didn’t have an early class this morning, I decided to make some Banana Foster French Toast http://www.mommiecooks.com/2011/03/18/banana-french-toast/. I didn’t have Banana’s, so I decided to substitute apples for them, and it turned out better than I could have imagined.
3 Slices of Bread
2 Eggs (It’s generally better to use 1 egg per piece of bread)
Cream or ½ & ½ or Milk
1 Med Size Apple ( I used a Northwest Greening)
½ Cup Maple Syrup
½ a stick of Butter
2 Tbsp Brown Sugar
Mix Eggs and cream together in a bowl with cinnamon and nutmeg.
Soak Bread in egg mixture as long as desired. (Longer equates to more moist French toast)
Lightly Coat pan in oil and turn stovetop to medium/high.
Cook both sides of bread till golden brown and remove from heat.
For Sauce (Can prepare while toast is cooking):
Mix vanilla, brown sugar, butter and maple syrup in a bowl.
Pour mixture into hot pan and mix apples in immediately.
Stir and simmer for 5 minutes or until apples begin to soften.
Cook each piece of bread individually in the sauce for 2-3 minutes.
Once finished cooking, pour remaining sauce over your French Toast and enjoy a gourmet breakfast.
Also, it’s probably smart to keep a kitchen vent on, because this recipe can create quite a bit of smoke…
