On Tuesday Cam and I celebrated our wedding anniversary with lost of simple and delicious food and a quiet evening curled up on the couch; happiness! I ducked out of bed early and fixed us up some simple French toast as a treat for breakfast. Really you can’t go wrong with fried bread especially when drizzled in maple syrup with a little side of fresh fruit; it’s the kind of thing breakfast was made for :)
The applesauce gives a lovely fruity sweetness without any added sugar and is teamed with cinnamon, of course, for a truly scrumptious breakfast recipe. Choose nice crusty white bread and be sure to slice it thick for the very best results. We served this quick and simple vegan recipe with maple syrup and a fresh fruit salad. Perfect for a Sunday breakfast the whole family will enjoy or as a special breakfast treat for the very special person in your life.
Preparation time: 15mins
- 1 small loaf crusty white bread
- 1 cup non-dairy (or dairy) milk (I used rice milk)
- ½ cup apple sauce
- 1 tsp freshly grated cinnamon
- 1 tsp pure vanilla
- 1 tbs non-dairy (or dairy) butter or sunflower oil
- maple syrup & fresh fruit
Slice the bread thickly and set aside.
Whisk the milk, applesauce, cinnamon and vanilla together in a shallow bowl until well combined.
Heat a little butter in a small preferably non-stick frying pan until it begins to bubble. One piece at a time, dunk the bread into the milk and applesauce mixture allowing the bread to soak up the mixture. Hold the piece of bread over the bowl allowing the excess to drip off and then place in the frying pan.
Fry the bread in the hot butter flipping over after a minute, you want the bread to be nice and golden. Place the cooked toast on a warm serving plate and keep warm in a low oven while you fry the remainder of the toast.
Serve the warm toast with maple syrup and a little fresh fruit for a quick but delicious vegan breakfast recipe.
