Eggless French Toast with Homemade Peanut Butter

, , No Comments

As I walk into my regular supermarket, my eyes often fall on these shelves stacked with colored glasses and plastic bottles with visually fancy brands and varied fancy names. They vary from jams to preserves, from flavored yogurts to healthy muesli, from breakfast spreads to peanut butters. These fancy bottles are indeed tempting. I have myself been tempted many times to pick some of these. And why not! It's easy for anyone to just grab a bottle home, scoop out and serve at any time of the day, instead of cooking right from scratch. And with those added flavors, they taste great in mouth! Isn't that true? But, I have been far more cautious these days to resist my temptation to buy these stuffs.

Most of us know well that these store products do come with their dose of added preservatives and loaded flavors. Even the ones, that say are flavour free and unadulterated are not completely healthy as they contain preservatives. So considering this, it is gratifying at times to make something as simple and delectable as this one at home. Some of these store bought stuffs are real easy to make at home. Peanut Butter is one such spread that's as simple as mix, blend and ready! It is not so difficult to conjure up a delicious breakfast from the most basic ingredients. Eggless French Toast with Homemade Peanut Butter. Simple, easy and great on taste!

In this one, I have preferred using whole wheat bread to go the healthier way. However, use white bread as it tastes the best.

Here's what we need:

½ cup of milk
1 tsp cornstarch
½ tsp vanilla extract
2 slices whole wheat bread
1 tsp butter/oil
½ tsp castor sugar/powdered sugar
A pinch of cinnamon powder

Combine milk, cornstarch and vanilla in a wide mouthed bowl and stir until cornstarch has dissolved completely. Dip the bread slices in milk mixture. Heat a non-stick pan, place the bread slices on the pan. Add butter or oil on the sides of bread and allow it to brown lightly. Turn bread over and brown on the other side. Sprinkle with powdered cinnamon sugar or topping of your choice. Serve hot. I served mine with homemade peanut butter.
