We have timidly begun a new tradition in my home.
For the past three weeks, each Thursday, my father and brother make the 2min drive to my home to have breakfast with my husband and myself (and our dog Yoshi). Although they struggle to make it here by 10am (which I personally don't consider to be that early, but I guess I didn't inherit my family's 'vampire' gene), they eventually come rolling in, still sleepy eyed, to feast on treats with us.
The past two Thursdays I have made pancakes, but today I thought I'd deviate a little and make french toast instead, with some fruit thrown in for good measure (and nutrients).
prep time: 5mins.
cooking time: 15mins to make 8 slices of french toast and poached pears.
taste: 4.5/5. As I guessed, everyone loved these. Anything that involves sugar, maple syrup and fruit tends to be a hit. The toast was spongy, soft and crunchy whilst the pears were softly firm with just a hint of cinnamon, the syrup they were cooked in went beautifully with the dish. I made the following modifications:
- I used sour dough white bread
- I used around 1/4cup maple syrup
would I make it again: Yes, with some extra spicing up and an extra pear.
recipe: French toast with spiced pears
