4 slices of bread,
2 eggs,
1 tablespoon lime or lemon zest,
1/2 cup cream,1 tablespoon powdered sugar,
1 tablespoon vanilla essence,

for the sauce:
1 tablespoon powdered sugar.

I admit, I love French toast. I usually cook these wonderful French toast for breakfast.
This recipe is from the popular French chef Cyril Lignac. He serves these toasts with peaches, but I like them with strawberry sauce. Simply mix a handful of fresh or frozen strawberries with the sugar and the sauce is ready. In this recipe, you can use absolutely any type of bread. I like using seeded bread.



1. Using a flat pan with high walls, mix the eggs, cream, vanilla extract, powdered sugar and lemon zest.


2. Dip the bread into the egg mixture, covering both sides evenly.


3. Carefully move the soaked bread onto a plate.


4. Heat the frying pan and grease it with butter. Cook the toast over a medium heat, be careful not burn.


5.  Fry for a couple of minutes until golden on each side.


6. Make a sauce. If you have frozen strawberries, put it on a small heated pan and cover with a lid, so the thaw quickly. The fruit needs to be soft. Put the berries and powdered sugar in a blender.


7. Pour the sauce over the hot toast.


8. Serve immediately! The toast is soft, moist and fragrant. Simple, quick and tasty!

Bon Appetit!
