In 704 we have made a tiny tradition of making weekend breakfasts special; while we work the entire week, this ends up being something that we both look forward to dearly. The MRS, while being a champion of baking, is no short of being a genius of stove cooking as well. Realizing that 704 Kitchen hasn’t shared a warm breakfast recipe yet, we’re excited to share our French Toasts!
Trust us, by the time you’re done having these your face and your tummy will both have a wide smile! 🙂
- Eggs- 2
- Milk- 1 ½ cup
- Cocoa Powder- 1 heaped teaspoon (optional)
- Cinnamon Powder- 1 ¼ teaspoon
- Powdered Sugar- 2 teaspoon
- Bread Slice- 5
- Apple- 1
- Brown Sugar- 4 teaspoon
- Butter- 6 tablespoon
- Cream- 1 teaspoon
- Walnuts (or any nut of your choice)- a handful
- Crack 2 eggs and add milk to it. Whisk.
- Add 1 heaped teaspoon cocoa powder, 1 teaspoon, and 2 teaspoon powdered white sugar. Whisk until everything is well combined to form your batter.
- Dunk bread slices in the batter; do not leave the slice in because it’ll get too soft and won’t hold shape when you transfer to the pan.
- In a pan, melt 1 tablespoon of butter and add dunked-in-batter bread slices. Cook each side for 1 minute before dishing out.
- Slice apples.
- In a pan, melt one tablespoon of butter. When it begins to sizzle, add 4 teaspoons of brown sugar.
- When half of the brown sugar is melted, incorporate sliced apples. Let apples cook, untouched, for about a minute.
- Stir well so that apples are well coated in the melted brown sugar.
- Sprinkle ¼ tsp of cinnamon powder and drizzle 1 teaspoon of cream. Stir well!
- Let the apples sizzle in the bubbling caramel for about 30 seconds before turning off the heat.
Bringing it all together!
- Spoon caramelized apples on the toast, and drizzle some caramel syrup.
- Now drizzle some cream.
- Top with some sprinkled icing sugar, cinnamon powder, and walnut pieces.
- Cocoa powder: while we added cocoa powder, this is optional and may be omitted. We personally feel that cocoa powder gives this a more warm and flavorful breakfast taste.
- Brown sugar for caramelized apples: you may choose to use white sugar if you don’t have brown sugar.
- Cinnamon powder: we are lovers of cinnamon! If you aren’t, feel free to use less of it in quantity.
- Fruit: while we used apples to celebrate fall, you can use either pears, strawberries, or bananas. These are tried and tested (and thumbs up-ed) choices of fruit for this recipe.
