Ultimate French Toast
4 slices brioche loaf roughly 1 inch thick
3 eggs egg
3 tablespoons milk
30 grams cornflakes
rapeseed or sunflower oil for shallow frying
Whisk the eggs and milk together in a shallow bowl. Roughly crush the cornflakes and spread them out on a plate. Gently heat the oil in a shallow frying pan once a small piece of cornflake sizzles when dropped in it’s ready. Dip the brioche slice into the egg mixture then into the cornflakes, gently pressing the cornflakes onto the brioche, then shallow fry in a frying pan until the underside is golden and crispy. Turn and fry on the other side until golden and crispy. Remove from the pan and drain on a piece of kitchen paper, repeat for the remaining brioche slices.
Serve this toast with fresh fruit and cream or yoghurt.
Better still serve this for Sunday brunch with JuJu dhau (King Yoghurt) (see recipe) while listening to Billy Holiday!
