Cinnamon infused french toast is served with mouth-watering blueberry maple syrup for a delicious Canadian-style breakfast.
French Toast with Blueberry Maple Syrup
Ingredients Makes: 2 servings
5 to 6 thick slices of bread *how many slices depends on size of bread pieces
4 eggs, mixed
1/4 cup of milk
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
sprinkle of sea salt
1/4 cup maple syrup
1/4 cup blueberries
2 Tbsp avocado oil ~or~ coconut oil
Prepare the egg mixture. In a medium-sized bowl break four eggs, remove any egg shell fragments, then mix well. Add the milk, cinnamon, vanilla extract and the sea salt to the eggs, and then mix until well combined. In a tray or container 2 to 2.5 x larger than a slice of bread, pour the egg mixture.
Prepare the blueberry maple syrup. In a small saucepan over low heat combine the maple syrup and the blueberries. Allow mixture to cook for a few minutes or until it begins to bubble, then give it a stir and turn off the heat.
Make the french toast. Place your sliced bread in the egg mixture, and with a fork, gently move the bread in the mixture, then carefully flip the bread and egg-soak the other side until the bread is covered in egg. Repeat until all the bread pieces are well soaked in the egg mixture. Stack the egg-soaked bread pieces as you go on one side of the container the egg mixture is in, tipping the container slightly to move egg mixture to open end while dipping the bread.
In a large girdle or frying pan over medium heat (4 to 4.5 on the electric stove), pour in one tablespoon of cooking oil then 3 of the egg soaked bread pieces placed apart from each other. Cook the french toast for 2 minutes then flip the bread and cook for 2 minutes on the other side. Cook until both sides are a nice golden brown colour, then transfer cooked french toast to a plate and cover to keep warm.
Add another tablespoon of oil to the pan and repeat with the remaining egg-soaked pieces of bread, until all the french toast is cooked. Cooked french toast can also be kept warm in an oven on low heat until ready to serve.
Serve cooked french toast warm with the warmed blueberry-infused maple-syrup. Enjoy.
