"Eggless" French Toast

After the recipe for "Desi Toast" was well received by my family & my readers, I decided to give its sweeter version a try! I am only too happy that I tried, especially for the sweet tooth I have! If you enjoy pancakes, waffles, crepes or any other sweet breakfast treats, then you must try this classic yet eggless version of French toast.

Thick slices of bread, soaked in a mixture of milk, corn flour, sugar and cinnamon, toasted in a pan smeared with ghee, and served with a drizzle of honey/maple syrup - can you even think of a better breakfast?! A guaranteed hit with the kids, this 'eggless' french toast recipe is ideal for your busy mornings!

Basic Info
Complexity - Simple
Prep time - 10 mins
Cook time - 20 mins
Serves - 5-6 slices

Bread - 6 slices (I used Oroweat buttermilk bread, you can use other white / wheat varieties too)
Almond milk - 1/4 cup (You can also use regular milk)
Corn flour - 3/4 tbsp (You can alternatively use custard powder)
Vanilla extract - 1 tsp (Skip this if using custard powder)
Cinnamon powder - a generous pinch (optional)
Sugar - 1 tsp
Ghee - As required to toast

Microwave 1/4 cup of almond milk on high for 30 secs and pour it into a wide mixing bowl. To this, add corn flour, vanilla extract, cinnamon powder & sugar. Use a hand whisk and mix it well until corn flour & sugar dissolves in the milk.

Heat a skillet on medium. When hot, drizzle a tsp of ghee over the skillet. Dip the bread slices on both sides in the milk briefly (for about 2-3 secs). 

Toast the bread slices on hot skillet until golden brown & crispy on both sides.

Serve hot with a drizzle of honey / maple syrup on top and enjoy!
