I’m back in Copenhagen! Since it’s no longer spring semester, I’m not living in a culinary themed house anymore and because of that I haven’t been cooking as much. That and the first week I was here my appetite was very weird due to jetlag and I was doing things like eating a bowl of peas and an ice cream cone for dinner. And then I was on a study tour in Berlin for the second week and didn’t get the opportunity to cook. I did however cook this french toast. It’s a pretty basic dish but this is actually the first time I’ve ever made it without it being a disaster and it’s pretty so I figured I’d post it.
I honestly didn’t know until very recently, I think when I watched a french toast challenge on Beat Bobby Flay, that you don’t just dip the bread in plain eggs and throw it in a skillet. That might be because one of my friends makes the weirdest “french toast” in the world, it’s more of an omelette with chunks of bread in it. Anyways, now I know. I made the egg mixture with eggs, milk, vanilla bean, cinnamon, and a bit of sugar. Then I heated a skillet with butter, made sure the bread was adequately coated in egg mixture, and cooked it till it was a perfect golden brown. I topped it with maple syrup and sliced strawberries and bananas.
