French Toast and The Man who didn’t come back



French Toast: Eggy, bready,buttery,goodness. It’s comfort food at its finest and perfect for sunday. Perfect. This week was funny,sad,and weird all at the same time. Somebody from Princess’ past showed up. No, not in a weird soap opera type way, but in a ‘Uh,this can only happen to me type’ way. A couple of months ago my parents hired a man in desperate need of a job to garden. He lived very far away from Buttermilk Springs and had no money for a car or even transport fare. So, everyday we gave him money for transport. Until, one day I mistakenly forgot to give the man money. And he didn’t come back for a week. So, we decided to give him money for the whole week, instead of just day by day. Efficient. And as my mother handed him his small sum of cash he had a huge smile on his face. And as I closed the door behind him, he did a dance as he skipped out onto the street. And another two weeks, he didn’t come. It turned out that he used the money to go to a bar and buy everybody drinks. He was the town hero. We tried to ensure we gave him money everyday but for one day we didn’t have change. And since we all knew what happened when we gave him ‘too much’ money. We just asked him if he could somehow make it. ‘Come tommorow,maybe?’ was his response. And we didn’t see him again. Until this week. We’ll try to keep change.

So, French Toast. This recipe is everything you would want out of a French Toast recipe. It makes that neat diner taste/buffet taste. It was soooooo good! Try it on a Sunday Morning.

Princess’ French Toast

                            1/4 cup all-purpose flour

  •                     1 cup milk
  •                     1 pinch salt
  •                     3 eggs
  •                     1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  •                      1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  •                     1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  •                     1 tablespoon white sugar
  •                     1 Tablespoon of Maple syrup ( old diner secret)

                              12 thick slices bread

adapted from

Measure flour into a large mixing bowl. Slowly whisk in the milk. Whisk all the other ingridients until smooth.Heat a buttered griddle over medium heat. Now, here comes a secret to not soggy french toast, Lightly dipped, don’t oversoak the bread. Just a dip will ensure maximum taste and not soggy toast. I mean who wants soggy toast? Anybody? Anybody? Didn’t think so. Cook bread on each side until golden brown and crisp. Serve hot with eggs,syrup, bacon, whatever makes you feel like a princess.

Buttermilk Springs is far away from any good grocery store,bakery,restaurant,fast food place etc. So I have to make everything and I mean everything ( even certain types of bread) from scratch. So stay tuned for some of my favorite things made at home.

Princess knows you love her blog

Keep it yummy,folks.
