- My Chocolatey French Toast
My Chocolatey French Toast
I look down into the empty plate.
Not one single pancake left for me.
I have spent the last few hours in the kitchen, making these wonderful chocolatey pancakes one after the other, and by the time I was finished and joined the rest of the family, none was left?
“C’mon guys! What about me?”
I should’ve known better though, judging by the hungry mob coming into the kitchen and snatching the pancakes straight out of the pan… They didn’t even wait for the pancakes to make it to their plates…
At least I know they were good. That’s for sure. I’m putting it on my to-do list to write the recipe in my next post.
But now what?
I was craving something chocolatey and spongy the whole day… You know what I’m talking about, right?
- I eat an apple or some other fruit and forget the whole thing. (No way!)
- I whip up something else (with whatever I can find in the fridge), and hope it comes out chocolatey and spongy…
I opt for the latter, obviously!
So I grab an egg, some milk, cocoa powder, some stevia, and vanilla extract, and put it all on the counter.
Ok, that’s a beginning, but what about that cakey texture I was sooo looking forward to?
The only think I can think of, that somehow resembles the texture of a cake is… well ….. bread.
Hmmm, I guess we’ll have to make do.
So now what do I do with all this?
Let me think… let me think….
I already spent enough time in the kitchen today. Better be quick and easy.
Ok, let’s see.
All into a mixing bowl. Now whisk. Now dip the bread.
Into a pan. Now fry, flip, and fry the other side.
Fast forward 10 minutes to a much happier me...
Of course, when the house filled with that chocolatey fragrance for the second time today, my hungry mob came in again and demanded their share. Only this time I managed to hide my new creation behind one of the fruit bowls on the counter…
A few useful tips:
- Both mixing bowl and frying pan need to be wide enough to contain 1 slice of bread.
- A lid for your frying pan might come in handy, although it’s not a must.
Ok, dears, let’s make it happen.
- Making: about 5 minutes
- Cooking: about 5 minutes
You will need:
- 1 organic egg
- 1 tbs. organic whole milk
- 3 sachets stevia, or to taste
- ¾ tbs. organic raw cocoa powder
- 2 drops pure vanilla extract
- Optional: a teeny-weeny pinch of salt
- 1 slice bread of your choice, ripped into 2 halves
- ¾ -1 tbs. ghee/coconut ghee/coconut oil
How to make it:
- In a flat bowl, whisk egg, milk, stevia, vanilla, salt, and cocoa powder, until well combined.
- Dip bread in batter, let sit for a minute, then flip and dip other side.
- Place bread in a frying pan pre-heated with ghee/coconut ghee/coconut oil. Pour leftover batter on top.
Tip: to keep moisture and enhance cooking, cover with a lid.
- Fry for a couple of minutes, then flip with a spatula, and fry the other side.
- Serve warm, with some butter, or any topping of your choice.
