French Toast

It was a lazy Saturday morning.  I slept in (relatively), after a long few days at the jobby job.  I have some big plans today and intend on having some fun.  I need to have a 24 hour break from all the work recently.  To start my day off, I did something I rarely do, breakfast.

This is a quick and easy dish I used to make on the regular about 10 years ago.  It has been at least 2 since I last made it but the recipe came back to memory like riding a bike.

French Toast

6 slices of bread
1/2 cup of vanilla non-dairy milk
1 tablespoon of vegan margarine
1/2 tablespoon of cinnamon
2 teaspoons of nutritional yeast
1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon of almond extract (optional)
1/2 teaspoon of cardamom (optional)

Heat the margarine on med heat on a non stick skillet.  Make sure the pan is fully up to heat before you begin cooking.

In a large bottomed bowl, add the non-dairy milk, cinnamon, nutritional yeast, vanilla, almond, and cardamom and mix vigorously.  The cinnamon will appear to settle near the top.  Gently dip each slice of bread into the mixture and place on hot skillet.  Allow to cook for 4-5 minutes and flip.  Repeat until all slices have been cooked and are a golden brown color.

French toast is a favorite breakfast of mine! I like to cook it in my waffle maker (:

I could definitely go for some French toast after reading this post. Never thought to add cardamom, but it sounds like a nice touch. Thanks for sharing!

The cardamon is a great idea! I love to put cardamon in my tea, it gives it nice aroma an flavor.
