Recipe For One – Vanilla French Toast

My daughter has always loved French toast. She puts both peanut butter and syrup on it when it’s done. I’d like to share with you how I make vanilla French toast for one.

Depending on the size of the bread slices, I use two or three pieces of bread. When I was a kid, I used to love French toast with cinnamon raisin bread. Today, one of my favorite breads is challah. It can be cut thick and it already has the egg taste to it.

Now it’s time to coat the bread with your batter. We have used egg substitute just once and I had to throw away the French toast. There was no way to get the egg product to cook once it had soaked into the bread. We ended up slow cooking the bread and still the middle of the bread was soggy and wet. Instead, I use two egg whites and one egg yolk. I like the one yolk for color and for consistency when beating the eggs. I’ve heard of people using the reverse, two yolks and one white. I prefer fewer calories and fewer cholesterol. If I’m making a larger batch of French toast, I’ll even use three egg whites to one egg yolk.

Many people add in one to two tablespoons of milk. We use non-fat milk in my house and it’s so thin that I just don’t use milk in my French toast batter. Depending on how much vanilla flavor you want, add in between 1/2 and 1 1/2 teaspoons of vanilla. Not all brands of vanilla are created equally. Some are much stronger than others. Base your measurements off of how strong your vanilla is.

If you like the taste of cinnamon, add in a pinch of cinnamon. While I do not add salt to my batter, many people also add in a pinch of salt. Whisk this all together and then dunk your bread. We do not like a soggy middle so we quickly dunk the bread just enough to coat the outside and then fry. Other people will allow the bread to soak up the batter for fifteen minutes. This leaves the bread a bit soggy in the middle when you’re done cooking the French toast.

I use butter flavored cooking spray. I very generously coat the frying pan and then add the bread. I flip it twice. The generous coating of butter spray helps in browning and crisping the edges of the bread.

If you use real butter for frying, allow the butter to brown a bit and then add your bread. Your bread will have a beautiful golden brown color around the edges when done.

As I mentioned above, my daughter likes peanut butter and syrup on her French toast. I prefer a sugar free maple syrup. Others top with fresh fruits and even fruit preserves.

It’s very easy to cook for one, and this is a wonderful hot breakfast that many people enjoy.

THE TOAST: Romantic Toast Letter


The silky honey of my inexhaustible comb

I will proselytize you into before I see my tomb.

Give me a chance to be feathers of your wings,

I am melody; let us soar together as I attach strings.

Every breath sketches you a clearer picture;

The sight I confronts is beauty with culture.

Like wax I melt from light into fervent night

My underfoot get slippery, l lose my might.

Be flattered with my extravagance I permit,

Let the shatters unveil our passion betwixt.

As first undefiled appearance of Adam and Eve,

Inseparable with no hidden secret to conceive.

To a union that betters us when comes worst,

To a bond that is glass when we need trust.

I will drink from your love’s cup until ghost,

From my cores sincerely, I propose this toast.

  • I’ll proselytize you

Some people are naturally endowed with word power, they easily have their way with just speaking the right words. This is one of the greatest gifts in its raw state to transform any mind. Just as the honey is medicinal, so are the right sweet words, they have the ability to fully convert even the most broken heart to a place of total happiness.

  • The rubies of my stock

There is no one who cannot express love. In our individual capacities, we all have a measure of the expression of love and in several ways gifted to express it. Love is as precious as ruby, which also has the color of love; the deep red color is chosen as the universal symbol. Rubies are scarce but when you find them, you have a treasure in your hands so is true about unconditional love when it comes your way.

  • Like wax I melt

Like wax I melt – The passion for a particular thing is what prompts you to give all you have. If you are truly attracted by a vocation or a vision, you can melt for it. It become your number one mission, nothing else seems to be more important than it is. The impetus to do other things becomes irrelevant; your entire energy is redirected and converted to make that particular focus productive. This is what actually makes a mission work and worthwhile.

  • Undefiled appearance of Adam and Eve

The ability to come out plain and open in every commitment is what generates a strong bond. The reason why some relationship fails is that one or both parties chose to still keep skeletons in their cupboards. People hide certain things about themselves because they feel it would expose their weaknesses if shared. Every page of your life turned remains turned, there’s nothing we can really do to reverse it; your faults should be shared as a lesson or an experience to our partners to learn from

  • I propose this toast

Many people devalue the purpose of a toast, they tend to see it like a mere obeisance. A toast is as much of an expression of faith and love as a seal of appreciation. It has an emotional way of declaring heart felt feelings for the bodies concerned.

Bread Toasters – Best Way to Toast Breads

The electric appliance used in kitchen which is used to toast all types of bread products are called Bread Toasters. The power consumed by toaster is between 600 W to 1200 W. There are two types of toasters

  • Electric
  • Non-Electric

Non-Electrical toasters are used to toast bread products using open fire.

The other various types are:

Pop-up Toasters:

These are also called automatic toasters. In this type of toaster, we insert the bread slices into the slots vertically at the top of the toaster. These slots are generally very large enough in which one single slice of bread can be easily inserted. Once the bread is inserted, the bread presses the lever of the toaster and thus the toaster is started. There is a internal device that determines the phase of toasting. Once the toasting is completed, the internal device signals the toaster to turn off and it also signals to send the bread upwards outside the toaster and then the toaster pops up the bread through the slots of the toaster. The heating elements that are used to toast the bread are kept vertical in parallel direction to the bread so that the bread is toasted properly.

Old toasters has a mechanical timer where we can pre-fix the time of toasting. The user can adjust the timings based on his bread toasting requirements. This method has some issues where the first set of breads gets toasted well and the next set does not gets toasted properly due to the heating elements are not heated well. Some toasters also use a sensors made of bimetallic strip.
