New beginnings are totally my thing this year. Starting brand new, embracing new habits and having a more positive look on life. If you are wondering who I am, it’s time to introduce myself. My name is Maria and I am what you would call a daydreamer, whose dreams have pastel colors and french pastries. I am the girl behind a foodie blog called “Honey and Cinnamon” and I am here to share with you some of my creations, after my sweet Anastasia asked me to join!
My first recipe is one you can make on a Saturday evening and then wake up the next morning and simply open the oven. An overnight version for french toast, which has nothing less than the original in taste (well maybe less fat involved) and is a treat for everyone on a Sunday morning.
Ingredients (for two persons)
4 slices of whole-wheat bread (or white)
1 cup whole milk (or nut milk of choise)
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon ginger
2 tablespoons honey (plus extra to serve)
1/2 cup almond flakes
powdered sugar to serve
fruit of choice to serve
1. In a medium bowl, whisk together eggs, milk, honey, cinnamon and ginger.
2. Use oil or butter to grease a medium pan and place your slices of bread on it. Then pour evenly the liquid mixture you prepared into the pan, making sure to cover all the slices of bread. Cover your pan with foil and place it in the fridge overnight.
3. The next morning, set your oven to 180C, take out the pan from fridge and bake for 25 to 30 minutes (You don’t want it to get extra dry).
4. When the french toast is ready, place the slices on plates, top with some extra honey and almond flakes. Add your favourite fruit of choice (I personally chose strawberries) and finally dust some powdered sugar for extra sweetness and charm.
