Hello hello everyone. I am back to blogging after a break that went longer than expected. I missed blogging recipes and I am glad to be back. I wanted the first recipe that I post to be something sweet..
Here is a delicious recipe which can be served as breakfast or as dessert. Baked French Toast. Easy to prepare and totally tasty. Crunchy when you take a bite, soft and sweet as you eat.. Yummy.
The recipe can easily be doubled or made in half the quantity.





Here is the recipe..

Serves 2 as breakfast or 4 as dessert

Ingredients :
Bread - 6 slices (use any type, preferably sandwich or milk bread)
Butter - 1/4 cup melted
Egg - 3 large
Sugar - 1/4 cup + 1/8 cup, use more or less as per taste, use brown sugar or white
Milk - 1/4 cup
Salt a pinch
Cinnamon powder - 1/4 teaspoon (optional)

Method :
1. Preheat oven to 180C when ready to bake.
2. Pour melted butter over the base of a baking dish.
3. Sprinkle half of the sugar evenly over the melted butter. This step is optional.
4. Sprinkle cinnamon if using.
5. Remove the brown corners of the bread and cut each slice into 4, 6 or just chop it into chunks. The choice is yours. I cut it into 4.
7. Arrange one layer of the bread on top of the melted butter.
8. Arrange another layer of bread on top of the first bread layer.
9. You can stuff slices of banana or apple or any other fruit of choice between the two layers of bread.
10. In a mixing bowl add eggs, milk, salt and sugar. Whisk well to combine.
11. Pour the egg mixture evenly over the bread.
12. You can bake it right away or can refrigerate it till ready to bake for several hours or even overnight.
13. Place the baking dish in the preheated oven and bake for about 30 minutes or till desired doneness is achieved. Have a close eye after 20 minutes to make sure the toast doesn't burn.
14. Remove from the oven when done and let it cool down for 10 minutes before serving.
15. Serve as is or with syrups and fruit sauce of choice. Serve warm as a dessert with some ice cream or fresh cream.




Enjoy Baked French Toast.

Notes :
1. You can just grease the base of the baking dish and omit using butter.
