Every Sunday in our house is officially – French toast day! My kids love the stuff, and have demanded that I make it each and every Sunday!! I have had to come up with some different ways to make the french toast to keep it yummy and exciting. We hardly ever use maple syrup (The pure stuff is best). Sometimes we use just powdered sugar, and other times I make a homemade “syrup”. Here is my recipe for French toast, and my infamous Strawberry Syrup (Infamous according to my family)
French toast (2 versions as my kids eat eggs)
1 cup vanilla soy milk
2-3 tablespoons flour
1.5 teaspoons sugar
1 tsp vanilla
bread slices (Spelt is best)
Mix all ingredients well. Dip bread in then fry on lightly buttered (Earth balance organic) griddle.
¼ -1/2 cup Orange juice (not from concentrate)
½-1 tsp vanilla
Bread slices (Spelt is best)
Dip bread then Fry on lightly buttered (Earth balance organic) griddle.
1 Package frozen (mostly thawed) Organic Strawberries (Fresh would work as well)
3 Tblsp Orange juice (not from concentrate)
½-1 cup sugar (I only use ½ cup, but this is a matter of preference)
Slice strawberries or put into blender.
Mix all ingredients in a saucepan.
Bring to boil stirring frequently.
Reduce heat to low, simmer stirring frequently 15-18 minutes.
Remove from heat, and cool almost completely before serving. Can be kept in the refrigerator 1-2 weeks
The Combination of strawberries and French toast is amazing!! My kids love it so much, they literally lick their plates clean!!
Try making this syrup next time you make French Toast, your family will surely love it!
