A true gourmet french toast, our version is flavoured with coffee and cinnamon, fried to golden perfection and topped with homemade whipped cream, sliced bananas, and crushed hazelnuts
No. 1 | In a medium or large shallow bowl, whisk together the eggs, cream, coffee, sugar, cinnamon, vanilla, and a pinch of salt.
No. 2 | One slice at a time, soak the bread in the eggs for about 20 to 30 seconds per side. Set them aside on a plate or wire rack while repeating with remaining bread.
No. 3 | Place a heavy skillet on medium heat. Melt 2 to 3 teaspoons of butter in the pan and fry one or two pieces of the french toast until golden brown, about 3 minutes per side. Set cooked french toast aside in a warm oven or microwave while cooking the rest.
No. 4 | To serve, top the french toast with a dollop of whipped cream, sliced bananas, a drizzle of maple syrup, and a sprinkling of crushed hazelnuts.
