My 6 year old requests French Toast often. Only she doesn’t refer to it as French Toast. She says, “I want that yummy stuff with powdered sugar on top.” I guess the powdered sugar has made an impression. I think we’ll be making it more when school starts. It’s relatively healthy – powdered sugar and all. It’s also super quick and simple. If you are like me, you’ll quickly tire of making the same old boring French Toast. I’ve made a list of delicious on hand ingredients you can add to your egg mixture to mix it up a bit.
Maple syrup – Just a tablespoon goes a long way to sweeten things up.
Almond extract – Anything other than vanilla will change it considerably.
Microwaved jam or jelly – Heating the jam turns it into a liquid that mixes in easily.
Flavored coffee cream – Substitute some of your milk for flavored coffee cream.
Please share your favorite French Toast add-ins. I’d love to hear what other creative moms are doing.
