Simple but Great: French Toast

Today is my half marathon race day, thus I am sticking to my regular breakfast. However, once in a while we do “fancy” thing, e.g. breakfast that takes a tiny bit more time and preparation than pouring cereal into a bowl. Something like pancakes, waffles, and French toast. Though it takes a bit longer, at least French toast is fairly simple to make.

I am not sure where the name comes from, I sort of doubt that the French really invented this. But if they did, great job guys. Egg, milk, and bread together makes a yummy combination.


– your preferred bread, sliced
-1 to 2 eggs, depending on the serving size
– some milk
– icing sugar
– cinnamon

Crack your egg and beat it lightly. Add the milk to thin it out, but make sure it is not too much. More beating is required at this point. Heat a pan and add some oil, really just a tiny bit. Now to the fun part, dip your bread on both sides into the mixtures and off to the hot pan it goes. Make sure you don’t burn either side, but don’t under cook it either.

Place on a plate, dust with icing sugar and cinnamon and you’ll have a happy husband, wife, children, boyfriend, girlfriend, mother, father, grandparents….you name it. A happy family is a good family, right?

Btw, I finished my half marathon fairly well in 2:24:38, which is good considering it was my first one. I am exhausted but happy that I was able to pull it off. Anything that is less than 21km will look like a piece of cake from now on.

Happy baking!
