If I’m feeling up for something special on the weekend, I will usually make french toast. It’s easy — just a couple of eggs, a little milk or cream or soy milk, and spices of your choice. I love a spice blend available via Juliet Mae called raz el hanout. It’s got about 18 things in it. It’s warming and soothing and makes really delicious french toast.
For something unusual, I sometimes make french toast out of english muffins. The craggy side soaks up lots of the eggy custard. The smooth side gets a little crispy. You do need to cook them a bit longer than regular bread. They are better when they’re not soft or soggy.
Cooked in butter and topped with maple syrup… Perfect!
