French Toast

We're back from Salzburg!

What can I say. The city was simply breath-taking. As a matter of fact, I commented that Salzburg could even pass off as part of Germany. Everything was very German - the architecture, the food... even the language is the same. The only significant difference is the Alps which frame the entire scenery of Salzburg so beautifully. Like how a photo frame makes a photo look so much better, the Alps changes Salzburg from a "wow" to a "WOW"!

Anyways, before I process the photos, here's a foodie post.

French toast must have been one of the first things I learnt how to cook - back in school during Home Economics. You see, many women from Asia do not necessarily need to know how to cook because eating out is so cheap, it doesn't make economic sense to cook for yourself. Hence, as part of our school's curriculum, we learnt how to cook and sew! And oh boy, I so wish that I kept some of my recipes!

When we came back from Salzburg, our fridge was so empty and I was famished. So was the hub.

I looked into my fridge and saw that we only had bread and 2 eggs. Suddenly it dawned on me that I could re-visit this dish which I haven't eaten in years! Literally.

You'd need:

- 2 large eggs
- 1 cup of milk
- 2 tbsp honey
- 1 tbsp sugar
- dash of salt
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- Slices of bread

1. In a pie plate or shallow, flat-bottomed container big enough for one bread slice, mix all the ingredients except the bread.

2. Over medium-low flame, heat butter or oil in a pan.

3. One at a time, dip both sides of the bread in the egg mixture. Place on pan.

4. In batches, cook until golden brown, turning once. Transfer to a warmed plate in the oven (optional).

5. Serve with fresh fruits and honey.
