Craving something sweet, I reached for none other than my new friend Nigella Express. Oh Nigella! Where have you been all my life. This is my first Nigella Cookbook. Yes. I am a Nigella virgin!
But it wont be for long. I have my eye on Domestic Goddess and Feast. But lets get back to the sweets.
It was mid Sunday morning, and I had gone on my morning jog on the treddy, put two loads of washing on, entertained the kids and done and general tidying up. So, my tummy was rumbling, and whilst I know I undid all my good work exercising, these were well worth it.
Doughnut French toast!!
Here is what you need.
4 teaspoons of vanilla extract
60 mls of milk
4 slices of bread. I think I just used the last four slices of day old sourdough bread.
50g caster sugar.
1. Beat the eggs with the milk and vanilla in a wide shallow bowl.
2. soak the break halves in the eggy mixture till it coats.
3. heat the butter in a fry pan and fry the egg-soaked break until golden and scorched in bits on both sides (about 4 minutes a side on medium heat)
4. put the sugar on a plate and then dip your cooked break in until coated like a sugared doughnut.
These are for the sweet tooth but i happened to enjoy them with just a squeeze of lemon ontop.
put the kettle on, sit and marvel at a job well done!
