French toast or toast mayai as we fondly call it here in Kenya is a quick breakfast fix that can be transformed very easily. This time round I added some orange zest and the results were amazing.
Ideally a day or two old bread is great with french toast but any slice of bread will work well.
In a shallow bowl, break in your eggs and grate over the orange zest.
Add the milk.
Using a fork,whisk to combine.
Coat the bread slices.
Flip to coat the other side.
Heat your pan over medium heat and add some little and swirl to coat.
Place the coated bread slices.
Cook until lightly golden and flip to cook the other side.
Repeat the cooking procedure until your bread slices are over.
Sprinkle over some icing sugar, drizzle with honey and top with some fruit.
Or serve it plain.
However you choose to eat them, you’re sure to enjoy them.
Easy to whip up and utterly delicious.
Sunshine in my mouth.
