french toast with a twist, originally uploaded by pearlyn83.

I came across this recipe on someone’s blog. It sounded really cool…french toast with alcohol. So I thought I’d give it a go and see how it goes. The effect was not too bad, especially if you are an alcoholic 🙂 ! I served it with blueberries compote which I made from some leftover blueberries. I would add a bit more alcohol the next time. My suggestion – use either a coffee based alcohol or something like rum.

Ingredients:

  • Bread
  • Eggs
  • Milk
  • Sugar
  • Pinch of salt
  • Alcohol
  • Butter

Blueberry Compote:

  • Blueberries
  • Lemon juice
  • Sugar
  • Corn flour mixture

Method:

  • Lightly beat an egg in a bowl. Pour it into a big, flat dish, mix in the milk, alcohol, sugar and salt. Adjust the taste accordingly.
  • Heat a frying pan with butter on medium heat.
  • Soak bread in egg mixture. Pan fry till medium brown in colour.
  • Serve with blueberry compote/cream/ice cream.
  • Place ingredients for blueberry compote in a saucepan. Heat till sugar dissolves. Add in corn flour mixture to thicken it. Squeeze in approximately 1 tbsp of lemon juice and stir well. Refrigerate and serve with other things.
