New Recipe – French Toast

Ingredients:

  • 2 eggs
  • ½ cup milk or half-and-half
  • ½ tsp. vanilla extract (optional)
  • Cinnamon or nutmeg to taste (optional)
  • 4 thick slices of day-old bread — French and Italian bread work well
  • 1 tbsp. butter

 

Method:

Beat together the eggs and milk. Whisk in the vanilla and seasonings. Melt the butter in a frypan or griddle over medium heat. Dip the bread slices in the batter. Fry the bread in the butter until browned on each side. Serve with syrup or powdered sugar (icing sugar).

For a fancier breakfast, make a French toast sandwich. Put cream cheese and jam, broiled banana slices or sautéed apple slices between 2 slices of battered bread. Cook like a grilled cheese sandwich.

 

I will be making French toast for breakfast this Saturday morning. French toast is one of the popular foods in France and is loved by many. This type of food is normally served with syrup covered over the top with icing sugar sprinkled over and fruit is optional to add in. French Toast is one of the easiest things to make and it’s a basic food everybody will love.

Food Restuarants

Le Petit Nice 

Is a nice restaurant and it would be really worth a visit for the magnificent view of the Mediterranean and the elegant white decor of the dining room.

Le Chantecler

This restaurant is located inside Hotel Negresco. It is a quite pretty restaurant with very old wood paneling from centuries ago with fragile portraits of the French royalty. 

 

If you are not interested in buying food you can go to an estaminet. This you can explore the french culture and explore wonderful places. If you are touring france, creperies prove to be an irresistible type of food tourists seem to can’t get enough of. As the name makes it clear, they sell sweet and savory crepes of every kind.

French Cherry Cake

  • This recipe takes less than 5min! 
  • Serve hot with cream 

Ingredients

125gm (4 oz) self raising flour

3 eggs

8 dessertspoons sugar

milk

cherries – best with fresh ripe cherries

 

Recipe

  • Beat/whisk the eggs, then add the sugar and beat that in to the eggs
  • Add the flour to the mix, and beat it in – you will probably need to use a fork, since it is too thick for a hand-held whisk and the recipe is too quick to bother getting the food-mixer out
  • Add a small amount of milk, perhaps 1/2 a cup, and mix well in. The consistency should be half-way between double cream and single cream – quite smooth but not at all watery. A cherry placed in the cake mix should stay put, not roll around!
  • Pour the mix into a tart/quiche type dish, quite low and flat
  • Add the cherries, carefully laid in an attractive pattern if it is for a dinner party (careful, this can add 2 minutes to the preparation time)
  • Cook in a PREHEATED hot oven (225degrees c / gas 7) for about 35-40 minutes, then remove. You can sprinkle some sugar on top if you want it to look even more sophisticated.
  • Serve your chery cake, ideally still hot but still nice cold, with a big blob of creme fraiche. Yum.
