French Toast

French toast is relatively simple, but when I first tried to learn the recipe (I was about 9) it couldn't have been more complicated.

Hopefully this is easier for you to do than it was for my 9 year-old self. If you've already mastered this sweet breakfast treat, then maybe it'll inspire you to fancy up your week-day mornings--french toast style.
3 slices of bread (french bread or day-old bread is the best. However, in a pinch, a toasted slice of white bread will do.)
1 egg
½ c milk
cinnamon or pumpkin pie spice

Serve with butter, syrup and powdered sugar. 

Heat a pan over medium heat.

In a deep plate or glass pan, whisk the egg and milk. Add in vanilla and enough cinnamon (or pumpkin pie spice) to provide lots of brown speckles :).

Place a slice of bread into your egg-milk mixture and flip to coat both sides.

Then, transfer to the heated skillet. Cook a minute or so, until it is golden brown and then flip. Cook another minute or so until that side is golden brown as well. Transfer to a plate and repeat with remaining slices.

Serve warm with butter, syrup and powdered sugar if you’d like.
