Doughnut French Toast

During this week I woke up in the middle of the night and could not get back to sleep. So I turned on the tv and watched last weeks episode of Nigella Express. She made this Doughnut French toast. So when I got up for work in the morning, I just had to try it. It was really good. On Saturday I made it for Daniel, he liked it as well. This recipe is for one, so just increase to how many people you are making this for. This is in the Nigella Express Cookbook.

Doughnut French Toast

1 egg
2 tbsp. milk
2 tsp. vanilla
1/4 cup white sugar
1 slice bread cut in half
1 tbsp. butter
1 tsp. oil

Combine egg, milk, vanilla in large flat bowl. Mix well.
Place bread in bowl and let it soak up egg mixture on first side then the other.
In fry pan add butter and oil, when hot add the bread slices.
Cook until browned on both sides.
Remove from pan and place in white sugar, coat on both sides.

Place on plate add a bit of butter and add maple syrup.
Nigella did make a strawberry sauce:
4 to 5 strawberries
place in blender
add icing sugar 1/4 cup
a squirt of lemon juice
blend together and then pour over french toast

That's how I usually make my french toast. What does it have to do with doughnuts? lol

Hendria said...

How to eat a cupcake... Nigella ... added extra vanilla to this recipe. I believe it gives you the flavour of donuts...with the sugar coating outside..the french toast. :)
Thanks for the comment.

Watching food TV in the middle of the night is dangerous. You dream food all night and wake up desperately wanting it. Your french toast looks worth waking up for.
