I prefer my french toast baked rather than pan fried with butter. It is so much healthier and yummy too if baked. I like to add banana slices and dark chocolate to it. We had four days holidays and this is what I served for our brunch when we were too lazy to go out and queue for our food....the crowds were either visitors from KL or Penang or as far as Singapore :p . All the famous eating places were packed so Wild Boar rather eat in. For me it is sheer heaven, no rushing to office and the best thing was we can sleep in LOL! Woke up to something sweet and chocolatey....double happiness !
It is easy to prepare and doesn't take much of your time. I have all the ingredients at home and making this is just super easy. I have some melted chocolate cream in the fridge waiting for my next cake frosting :) I spread some on my homemade wholemeal bread slices, sliced some banana and arranged them on the chocolate spread. Sandwich with another slice of bread and soaked the sandwich on the beaten egg mixture till both sides are coated with the egg mixture. Gently lift up and placed on the lined grill pan. Baked in oven for 15 -20 minutes @175C. Half way through baking, flip over to brown the other side of the sandwich . You can apply half a teaspoon of butter on each sandwich surface. When it is browned on both sides. You can take it out of the oven and served with honey and fresh fruits of your choice. I have strawberries , so I added them as desserts :)
you can use hazelnut nutella or melted chocolate as spread
make sure the sandwich is fully soaked with the egg
mixture on both sides
lined the grill pan with greaseproof paper for easy
Having french toast the baked way is so much
healthier and yummy when sandwich them with
fresh banana and chocolate spread
drizzle honey or maple syrup on them while they are piping
hot from the oven.....so chocolatey gooey good !
we both had a well rested four days holiday and looking forward
to the 31st August long holidays :)
Have a great day !
