… and fell in love. Aw….
But seriously. For my 28th birthday last week, I stretched it out all the way until Sunday morning when I made my farewell-to-birthday breakfast. I wish that I could say that I created this all on my own, but it just isn’t true. The only truth to this recipe is that it was posted on Tasty Kitchen by A Cozy Kitchen who blogged it from Freckles and Sunshine. Oh my lawd.
Also, the truth is that I didn’t measure. I guesstimated the whole thing and it worked out. What can I say… maybe that it why I don’t often cook in the morning. I am more of a banana girl.
But anywhoo… I was reminded of this recipe this morning when I realized my bananas had gone brown. I perused my fridge to find something that would be suitable for breakfast when I stumbled across a few pieces of Pancake French Toast babies and had popped one in the micro. I was shot straight back to Sunday morning and the yumminess that I experienced that day. I knew I would need to blog this recipe ASAP because not only are these babies amazing the morning/afternoon/night of, but they are also great popped into the fridge for 1, 2, 3, or 4 days and reheated for about 25 seconds per slice.
Here is what you need for about 3 servings:
- 2 whole Large Eggs
- 1/2 cup All-purpose Flour
- 1/2 cup Milk
- 1/2 Tablespoon Brown Sugar
- 1 Tablespoons Vegetable Oil
- 1 teaspoon Baking Powder
- ¼ teaspoons Salt
- 1 teaspoon Vanilla (optional)
- ½ teaspoons Cinnamon, Optional
- 6 slices Bread (you’ll Want Something Thick And Hearty To Stand Up To The Heavier Batter)…I used regular wheat bread and it worked out too
Then, add together all of the ingredients into the bowl… except the bread.
Make sure your skiddle… oh my lawd… I mean your griddle (sometimes….) is heated up before you begin this next step.
Dip your bread slices into the batter one slice at a time.
Make sure that the bread soaks up that sweet cinnamony batter on both sides.
Then slap them down on your griddle over medium to medium high heat.
Let the first side brown. Just like when you cook pancakes, you will know when it is time to flip because the batter will start to bubble and become firm.
Once both sides are browned to your liking, plate those bad boys with a little side of fruit. Slather the Pancake/French Toast babies with butter and Maple Syrup and dig in!
The best breakfast that I have ever made in my entire life EVER! Now, mind you… I am a big pancake fan, so maybe that swayed me. But there is something special about this breakfast. Make them for your self or make them for your honey, they are sure to be an ENORMOUS hit!
