Level: Apprentice Category: Breakfast Time: 30 Min Yields: 4 servings
- 1 Cup Dairy Free Milk
- 3 TBL Corn starch, Potato starch or Tapioca starch
- 2 TSP Vanilla Extract
- 1 TLB Maple Syrup
- 1 TSP Cinnamon
- Pinch of Salt
- 4 Slices Thick GF Bread (BFree or Schar)
- 4 TLB Dairy Free Butter (Earths Balance)
- Large Mixing Bowl
- Measuring Cup
- Measuring Spoon
- Large Nonstick Sauté Pan
- Oven Safe Plate (optional)
- Oven Mitts (optional)
- In your large mixing bowl, combine with a whisk the dairy free milk, cornstarch, maple syrup, cinnamon, salt and vanilla.
- Make sure you have just whisked your mixture before soaking your bread so the cinnamon and starch do not sink to the bottom of the bowl.
- Place one slice of bread into your milk mixture just long enough to coat then flip to the other side. Soak for a few seconds on each side.
- Melt 2 TLB dairy free butter in your non-stick sauté pan on medium high heat.
- Place 2 slices of bread in your pan. Cook for on one side for 3 to 4 minutes or until golden brown. Flip the bread and cook for an additional 3 to 4 minutes or until golden brown and crispy.
- Repeat with your remaining bread slices and your allergen friendly butter.
- Place slices on your plate. You can keep your French Toast slices warm in a preheated oven set to 150°-200°F on an oven safe plate.
- Serve with maple syrup or topping of your choice!
- You can store your French Toast in the refrigerator for up to 4 days and in the freezer for up to 2 months in an airtight container or bag.
- You can reheat the French Toast slices in a preheated oven at 350°F for 5-7 minutes. You can also place your slices in a traditional toaster to reheat.
- Add a dash of orange juice to add a subtle citrus flavor.
- Have fun with toppings such as powdered sugar and/or fresh berries.
- If you find the French Toast too browned for your taste either wipe the pan out between batches or put non-stick spray on your pan before Step 4 – Melt butter.
- If you want to streamline the process, you can coat all your bread slices in the batter and set them aside on a platter. Next, cook them in your sauté pan as stated above.
