The past week has been merciless mugging for me. With one exam down just yesterday, another one is drawing closer by the day. Barely had time to update this space but I’m seeing new visitors on Countless Plates, so a big HEY and a warm welcome to you!
I’ll make this update a really quick one – as quick as I fixed this Chocolate Orange French Toast for my study break. Here’s what you need:
For Egg Mixture:
1 tbsp Heavy Cream
1 tbsp Brown Sugar
1/2 tsp ground Cinnamon
1 tsp Orange Zest
Pinch of salt
2 slices halved White Bread
Handful of Chocolate Buttons
1 tbsp Butter
In a plate, beat all the ingredients for the egg mixture. Make sure they’re well mixed, before letting the bread to sponge it all in. Let it sit about 30 secs on both sides.
Prepare a slightly hot pan & baste it with enough butter to fry the toast. Rescue them from the heat once they turn golden brown on both sides.
In a small bowl, drop a handful of Marks&Spencer’s chocolate buttons (I replenished my inventory yesterday yeay!) with a teaspoon of butter and pop it in the microwave, on high for about half a minute.
Stack your golden toast in a plate, add the rest of your butter and pour the melted chocolate over em. Grate orange zest over that beautiful mess and eat it right away! Right away!
Steal whiffs of citrus as you bite into the irresistibly warm french toast, and mmm… glazed with melted chocolate topped with zest.
I trust you’ll be sneaking into your kitchen now as I head back to my books?
