Yum : French Toast

This recipe is one of my all time favourites, especially when you have time on the weekend to savour the delicious flavours.

French Toast

  • 3 eggs
  • ¼ cup (60ml) milk
  • ⅓ cup (75g) caster sugar
  • ¼ cup (60ml) pouring cream
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon lemon rind – finely grated
  • 20g butter
  • 8 slices baguette
  • Maple syrup – to serve


  • Whisk together the eggs, milk, sugar, cream, cinnamon and lemon rind
  • Heat a medium non-stick frying pan over high heat, add the butter and heat until melted and just starting to bubble
  • Dip the bread slices in the egg mixture and cook, in batches, for 2 minutes each side or until golden
  • Serve with the maple syrup
  • Serves 4

I actually use crusty sourdough bread and serve bananas and bacon with the French Toast – the traditional Canadian way.  Enjoy.
