Being at home with my kids during summer vacation makes me want to loosen the reigns a bit where food is concerned. I let them eat foods with more sugar in the mornings from time to time, and it is great to see the smile on their faces when they see the extra special breakfast my other half or I had prepared for them.
My younger daughter loves to have sprinkles added to some of her breakfasts on special occasions. One morning, I wanted to make French Toast for her, but she is not crazy about eating eggs. To solve this conundrum, I decided to try putting some special touches to it so she would try to eat it. This is where I came up with this Sticky Sweet French Toast dish!
Now, I know you are thinking to yourself that French Toast can already be sticky and sweet with syrup drizzeld all over it, but no syrup is used in this dish! Check out below how I put this yummy treat together.
- 3 slices of bread
- 1 egg
- 2 tbsps milk
- A few drops of vanilla
- 1 tsp of butter (not pictured)
- Icing sugar (not pictured) and sprinkles
- Heat a pan to medium heat and use ½ tsp of butter to lightly grease the pan.
- In a bowl, blend the egg, milk and vanilla together until it becomes a uniform mixture.
- Lightly dip each piece of bread into the egg mixture on each side and place into the heated pan. Flip it over after about 2 mins or golden brown and cook on the other side.
- Remove from stove and lightly butter each piece of toast with the rest of the butter.
- Using a strainer, dust each piece of toast with icing sugar.
- Add sprinkles to each piece of toast.
And there you have it! My daughter is thrilled whenever she gets to have this dish. She loves how bright it is and how sticky and sweet it tastes.
The great part about this dish is that you can customize it to your liking. You can add theme-specific sprinkles to celebrate a holiday, or you can use different fun-shaped sprinkles to make each piece special.
I hope you enjoy making this Sticky Sweet French Toast for someone special!
