Dayv has always been a breakfast food kind of guy. When I first met him, he told me his favorite food(besides pizza) was french toast. Whenever we went out to a restaurant and he had the opportunity, he'd order french toast. I even made him his grandmother's "famous" french toast recipe for our first anniversary of dating. It was an entire loaf of bread, 4 eggs, 1/2 cup of milk, 6 tablespoons of sugar, and a dash of nutmeg. Looking back at the recipe now makes my stomach turn. Really, Grandmother, six tablespoons of sugar??
I have been making Dayv this vegan french toast recipe for a couple of months now, several days a week. He loves it. It is so simple to throw together since the ingredients are minimal and the measurements are super easy to remember. It tastes delicious, too. You know, even without 6 tablespoons of sugar.
adapted from Babble Family Kitchen
makes approximately six slices, depending on bread thickness
6 slices of gluten-free bread
1/2 cup unsweetened almond milk
1 tbsp ener-g egg replacer
1 tbsp maple syrup
pinch of cinnamon
dash of nutmeg
In a bowl, whisk together almond milk and egg replacer. Add maple syrup, cinnamon, and nutmeg, and whisk until completely combined.
In a skillet over medium heat, lightly coat with Earth Balance. Take a piece of bread and quickly submerge it in the mixture, making sure both sides are wet. Place the bread on the skillet. After about 3-4 minutes, or until the bottom side is lightly browned, flip. Cook for an addition 2-3 minutes, or until lightly browned. Remove from skillet. Repeat until all mixture has been used.
Top with additional Earth Balance, maple syrup, fruit, or whatever you desire! Enjoy!
