Crunchy French Toast with Banana and Strawberry
2 cups flour
1 tablespoon baking powder
4 tablespoons sugar
½ teaspoon salt
½ cup unsalted butter, cut into pea-size pieces
1 cup currants or your favorite fruit
1 large egg
1 cup heavy cream
2 tablespoons sanding sugar, optional
2 tablespoons melted butter, optional
Powdered sugar, optional
Mix eggs, milk, vanilla, cinnamon, sugar together and set aside. Lightly crush cereal in its bag then pour into a bowl. Take a slice of bread and dip into egg mixture, then cover bread with cereal crumbs.
Set aside on a sheet tray. Do this process until all the bread is coated.
Get your grill or pan hot. Pour a little oil, about 1 teaspoon, on grill and place a slice of bread on top. Grill for about 2 to 3 minutes on each side. Slice toast in half and serve with sliced bananas and strawberries on top. Sprinkle with confectioners' sugar, if desired.
Can use almond extract instead of vanilla extract.
