This morning we woke up to a beautiful winter morning...what better way to start the day than with a hot breakfast and a cup of hot cocoa?? :)
Our choice??...french toast!! :)
I know french toast is a pretty basic recipe but there are several variations...and here is one that my sister, Sarah came up with.
8 slices of french bread, sliced about 3/4-1 inch thick
2 Tablespoons honey
1/2 cup heavy whipping cream
1/2 cup milk (I used whole milk)
1 tsp vanilla
2-3 Tablespoons butter
butter, syrup, berries, whip cream...
Step 1: Warm 2 Tablespoons of honey in the microwave for 20 seconds.
Step 2: Combine your warm honey along with the heavy whipping cream, milk, eggs, and a
generous sprinkling of cinnamon in a shallow dish. Whisk well. Heat a large skillet to medium heat and add 2 Tablespoons butter.
While the skillet is heating begin dipping your slices of bread in the egg mixture allowing them a few seconds on each side to soak up the liquid.
Place in the hot skillet.
Fry each side for a few minutes or until golden brown.
Remove from pan. You may need to add some additional butter for the next batch.
Top with your choice of toppings! :)
My favorite is butter, syrup, with a dollop of whip cream. YUMM-O!
