French toast is one of those perfect dishes for a cozy fall morning – or really any morning! Traditionally, French toast is made with a soft fluffy bread like brioche that is a little stale; instead I use whatever is in my fridge, because I don’t have time to go search out brioche most of the time. Today, I had some 9 grain bread that had been in the fridge for a while which made perfectly ready to absorb liquid. Try out this french toast with whatever you have; you won’t be sorry!
- 2 slices bread
- 1 egg
- 3 tbsp almond milk
- 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- 3 shakes cardamom powder
- oil for cooking
- 2-3 tbsp maple syrup
- 1/4 c blueberries
Heat a skillet over medium heat with some oil. Whisk your egg, and add the milk, vanilla extract, cinnamon, and cardamom. Combine everything, and dip the slices of bread in the mixture for about 5 seconds on each side. This will ensure a custardy inside to the French toast.
Once you have dipped your bread in the egg mixture, place them on the pan and allow to cook about 2 minutes on each side or until the sides are browned.
Heat your maple syrup and blueberries together in the microwave for about 30 seconds, and serve topped on your Whole Grain French Toast!
*Use whatever spices your enjoy. I highly recommend serving this with a fried or scrambled egg!
