I don’t know about you, but when I think of brunch my mind automatically goes to french toast. It’s the absolute perfect weekend breakfast, what could be better? Unfortunately for me, I don’t actually get to indulge in french toast at restaurants as most places make their french toast with eggs and milk- ingredients I like to stay away from. It’s quite alright though, as it pretty much forced me to figure out how to make a tasty version of my own…and I do love a challenge!
The vanilla extract and cinnamon give it a rich flavor, and using thick, firm bread ensures that the french toast has the perfect bite- no soggy, mushy bread here. I like to top mine with a little powdered sugar, butter and maple syrup of course. Yummy, sweet goodness!
- 2 large slices sourdough bread (or any firm bread you like)
- 1/2 cup nondairy milk (I use almond milk)
- 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1 teaspoon nutritional yeast flakes
- 2 teaspoons flour
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1/2 teaspoon sugar (optional)
1. In a large shallow bowl whisk all ingredients (except bread) until thoroughly mixed.
2. Preheat greased griddle to medium heat.
3. Quickly dip each piece of bread in the batter so that both sides are coated.
4. Place on griddle and cook until golden brown on the underside. Carefully flip and cook for another 3-4 minutes until the other side is golden brown as well.
