my other recipe for french toast and decided to change the flavor profile a bit. I think this is now my favorite - reminded me of lemony ricotta pancakes as they were fluffy and delicious.
Lemon French Toast serves 2
4 slices of bread (used my homemade, holey county loaf slices straight from the freezer)
2/3 cup whole milk
2 tablespoons cream (you don't have to use, but it was nice ; )
zest of 1/2 a lemon
grating of fresh nutmeg
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
dash of salt
1 teaspoon sugar
couple tablespoons butter for the pan
Whisk together all the ingredients and then in a glass pyrex place the bread slices and cover with egg/milk mixture - let sit a few min on each side turning a couple times. You don't want a soggy mess, just a bit soaked in. Melt the butter in a large pan or griddle and fry each slice until browned on both sides and cooked through. Great on it's own or with a little sprinkle of powdered sugar or maple syrup.
Keep that rain coming!!!
