Doughnut French Toast (Nigella Lawson)

Any variety for French toast, I'd give a try
Ian loves French toast so much he asks for it almost every weekend
While he's always happy with the same usual kind, his mummy gets very bored with it, a little twist here and there each time will be great :)

Nigella has a few variations for French toast. Let me try with this one first :)

Well, nothing fancy about this French toast actually. The same way of making, minus the sugar. Once ready, immediately dip in sugar and eat
Nevertheless, it's still a good thing. French toast won't fail you, will it? :)

Recipe is from HERE

What you need:

2 large eggs
4 tsp vanilla extract                                               
60 ml full fat milk                                               
4 slices white bread (I used thick toast, halved)                                                         25butter                                               
1 drop vegetable oil for frying               
50g caster sugar (I used icing sugar)

  1. Beat the eggs with the milk and vanilla in a wide, shallow bowl
  2. Soak the bread halves in the eggy mixture for 5 minutes a side
  3. Heat the butter and oil in a frying pan, and fry the egg-soaked bread until golden and scorched in parts on both sides
  4. Put the sugar on a plate and then dip the cooked bread in it until coated like a sugared doughnut

    1. thks Emily,
      this really tasted pretty similar to doughnut, with different shape :)

  2. My kids love french toast, they have been asking me for french toast a couple of days ago! Dipping it in sugar does sound like a doughnut!

    1. Joyce, can try this French toast, I guess they'll like it :)

  3. Nice breakfast! Love french toasts :) . Thanx for submitting this to CLAS!

  4. Hi Alice,

    We didn't have the habit of eating French toast at all and prefer pancakes for some reasons... French toast with lots of sugar... no wonder Ian likes this... I will like it too :D


    1. Zoe, pancake is also in the favourite bfast in our family, but my Ian has been into French toast especially lately, so the pancake must wait patiently for now LOL

  5. Hi Alice, any french toast is good for me. But these look extra good.

  6. I love french toast! Especially with lots of icing sugar dusted on top, like yours! Mmm!

    1. thks Jasline, I normally don't use icing sugar but maple syrup instead
      but will not say no to this one :)

  7. Alice, make some for my kids too next time yeah? Looks good!

  8. Wow can't wait to give this a try.
