Cinnamon French Toast (Kate Young)

September 29, 2017

Serves 2

Ingredients
2 large slices slightly stale bread
2 eggs
2tbsp milk
Pinch salt
2tbsp butter
1/2tsp icing sugar
1/2tsp ground cinnamon
Pinch nutmeg

1. In the flat dish, whisk the eggs, salt and milk together. Push the slices of bread into the mixture, leaving them for around a minute before turning them over. The time here is really down to how robust your bread is – sourdough can take a minute a side (it would be fine if you forgot about it for a good few minutes, actually), softer bread will need less time.

2. Melt the butter in the frying pan over a medium heat until it is frothing, then lay the bread in the pan. Cook for around two minutes, until golden underneath. Flip over and cook the other side for two minutes too. The butter will brown during this time – if you’d rather it didn’t, you can use clarified butter, but I quite like the nutty flavor that brown butter lends.

3. Remove the toast from the pan, then sprinkle with the icing sugar, nutmeg and cinnamon. Serve immediately.

  1. Melt butter in a large pot over medium heat. Stir in leeks and onions, and cook until the onion softens and turns translucent, about 5 minutes. Add potato, squash, carrots, apple, and chicken stock. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to medium-low, cover, and simmer until the vegetables are soft, about 20 minutes.
  2. Carefully puree the soup in batches in a blender, or use a stick blender to puree the soup right in the pot. Once the soup has been pureed, return it to the pot and stir in wine and cream. Season with nutmeg, salt, and pepper; simmer gently for 5 minutes. Ladle into bowls and garnish with chopped chives.
