Yes, this is French toast, but a superior one. Unlike normal French toast this batter cooks into a custardy, crispy coating that leaves the bread creamy and oh so good. The use of good egg bread is a must here. Homemade is best, however store bought (such as Hawaiian bread) will work in a pinch.
Cut the bread and place on a wire rack to dry out a little as you prepare the batter.
Whisk the egg to blend. Melt 3 tablespoons of the butter in a saucepan or on the stovetop and allow to cool slightly. Whisk the sugar, salt and spices into the egg. When the butter has cooled slightly, slowly drizzle it in to the egg, whisking all the time. A little at a time, add the flour to the egg mixture to make a smooth thick paste. After it is all added, slowly blend in the milk and finally the vanilla. Whisk until just smooth and set aside.
Heat the remaining butter in a large skillet over medium heat. Dip a slice of the bread in the batter and allow to soak for 30 seconds, no more. Remove from the batter and allow the excess to drip off, back into the bowl. Place the battered slice in the skillet. Repeat with the remaining slices. Cook until golden on one side and then flip to brown the other. Serve immediately–a fresh squeeze of lemon juice and a good dusting of powdered sugar is traditional.

Eat good breakfast to start the day has become a good habit. It’s a best way to start my day off healthfully. The sweet hit from the fruit wakes me up and gives me energy to make on the morning. The sweetness is more vilified as the root of all disease, but sweetness is also loaded with fibre, which is great for your stomach system and helps keep you feel full longer, and less likely grab a snack out of the vending machine before break .
Make fruit a morning habit is simple . Easy as put the fruit in your fridge next to the sweet drink or on the table next to your grain bowl , or move your coffee maker or tea kettle — about anywhere where you’ll see it. Before you eat the rest of your food , eat your fruit. If you’re not normally a breakfast person.
