mama home alone, food, french toast

I mean food... did you expect to find it here? I have no business in posting recipes other than I eat and like my plate look appetizing. If this convinces you enough to stay and read on, please do but be quick -- the butter's melting. I have cooked practically nothing all month long and then whisked together some eggs, milk, maple syrup, cinnamon and soaked my bread in it hours before we flew on holiday. Time I was most excited spending folding cotton neatly, I was dying to taste the result of nearly rearranging our tiny kitchen. It was amazing and the whole floor smelt of cinnamon instead of curry powder (sorry, neighbours). I prepared three slices of an English wholemeal toast bread and Polish white slice to experience a little variety. So when the cinnamon fume has settled and you want to make some of your own, here's what you need to replicate this summer project:
  • 4 slices wholemeal bread or any bread you like
  • 3 biggish eggs, whisked
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup and more for topping
  • 1/4 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • blueberries
  • 4 pats of butter
  • oil to spread on a sheet pan
Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees and whisk all ingredients together. Dip each slice of bread in batter and place it on a sheet pan spread with oil. Leave it to soak for about a duration of a remix of your favourite song then top the bread with blueberries. Bake for 25 minutes until bread is golden brown. Remove from oven and garnish with butter and maple syrup. Serve while freaking hot. Or go straight to the original recipe and do just the same.

I'm definitely not done after trying this simple summer recipe, if you're happy with more easy, mostly one-person-eat-it-all quick meals aka mama-home-alone, you're in right hands. So it turns out I actually like cooking. What a hugely reassuring thought. Happy day, friends x
