Eggless French Toast


French Toast and eggless ??!! That's what S asked me as I went on to prepare this over the weekend. Everytime we are on a vacation or at a restaurant buffet for breakfast, the strong smell of Vanilla infused Cinnamon in french Toast never fails to arouse my senses. Having said so, the non-egg eater in me refused to eat this, till I saw this recipe recently in a magazine (Good housekeeping, I guess). And got me to make this over the last weekend along with kiddo.

This is a ridiculously simple recipe for holiday cooking too;-) A perfect way to begin the day :-) Or even as a warm dessert post a lazy Sunday brunch (what we did)! 

Sending this across to Pavani who is hosting Valli's Kid's Delight - 5 ingredient fix and to BM # 28 too.

Prep time : 10 mins | Cook time : 10 mins | Serves : 3



Ingredients:
  • Bread slices - 8  nos
  • Custard Powder - 2 TBSP
  • Milk - Approx 1/2 cup (low fat version) + 4 TBSP
  • Sugar - 2 to 3 TBSP (adjust to taste)
  • Olive Oil - 3 tsp 
Method:
1) Boil the milk. Mix the custard powder in the remaining 4 TBSP milk to a smooth pouring (custard pudding consistency) and pour to the boiling milk. 
2) Switch off the stove and mix well. Add sugar and set aside. Then add the cinnamon powder and vanilla essence and mix well.
3) Cut the bread slices diagonally into half (this is for ease of use - you could use the entire slice if you wish). Lightly dip the bread slice into the custard mixture and place it immediately onto a medium-hot tava (skillet). Drizzle olive oil around the bread and flip and bake for a few more minutes till it turns slightly brown and moist.
4) Serve immediately as it is or with honey , or even better, dusted with cinnamon powder :-)
