Hi and welcome back.
I thought I would share another How to Make recipe. This time, its French Toast. Today I am dreaming of lazy Sunday mornings. That rare occasion when you wake up naturally, as opposed to the glaring noise of the alarm. No plans, no need to dash out of the house to face the morning commute. What better way to relax than to treat yourself to that indulgent breakfast?
I first tried French Toast when I was 16 years old. I had been at a sleepover with friends (the one where you spend all night talking so don’t actually sleep). Daylight descends, you are exhausted and just need sleep. My friends mum was making French Toast and I thought I would try it.
(Have I mentioned that before I became a coeliac I rarely experimented with food?) It was like heaven on a plate. Crunchy exterior, soft warm bread and lots and lots of sugar – the sweet tooth dream. It was the perfect treat to indulge in.
When I discovered I was a coeliac, I tried recreating the French Toast. It was a complete mess! The bread fell apart in the egg mixture so when I tried to cook it, I was left with scrambled eggs with soggy bread between – not exactly the treat I had been dreaming of.
I gave up for a long time until one lazy autumn morning. This time it worked! Here is the recipe – I have been using it regularly now. It just goes to show, with a few small tweaks this treat is not off limits for the coeliac.
So here is my simple recipe for gluten and dairy free French Toast. it is simple to make and tastes amazing. I hope you enjoy. Chrissi -x-
