A yummy start to the day! :)

Weekend is here...yay! After 5 days of getting up and making a rushed breakfast for my husband and then wondering what to make for myself , I LOVE Saturday and Sunday mornings. I feel on these days my husband and I can take our time, put the coffee pot on and conjure up a yummy treat.

So here is one of my favourites! :)

French Toast Crunch!

What you will need:

Texas toast or cinnamon swirl bread. ( Really whatever kind of bread you fancy, I tend to go with Texas Toast as it's thicker.)
Two eggs. (May vary depending on how many you are making it for.)
Cornflakes (Frosted or plain is fine.)
Confectioners sugar.
Spay oil or butter.
Frying Pan
Baking dish.

What to do first:

Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees.

Smash cornflakes by placing them in a Ziploc bag, make sure to gently squeeze all the air out, and proceed to press down with a rolling pin or your hand to break them into small pieces. Place in bowl and set aside.

Crack the eggs into a bowl and beat. Add vanilla and cinnamon. I like to add as much as I feel is necessary, basically until I get a nice strong aroma of the cinnamon and vanilla, this way I know I will be able to taste it! :p I'd say around 1 tblsp vanilla and 1 tblsp cinnamon. Then add half a cup of milk. Mix together.

Warm up the frying pan and add a touch of butter or spray oil if you prefer.

Dip your chosen bread, a slice at a time, into the egg batter until it has all been covered, then place in cornflake bowl. When you do this sometimes I like to pat down on the bread so that the cornflakes stick better and the loose ones can then fall back into the bowl, this saves us making a mess in the pan.

Brown the bread in pan, around 1 min on each side, then place bread into baking dish.

Repeat with desired amount of bread.

Once all of your bread is in the baking dish, place in the oven for 10 mins. Flip the bread over and place back in oven for 5-10 mins.

Take out of oven and serve. I like to sprinkle the confectioners sugar over the top, it adds a touch of sweetness and also makes it look pretty!

You can enjoy this with syrup, fruit or whatever you like! :)

Hope you guys enjoy and have a lovely weekend!
