wicked good

Do you ever have a time when only a doughnut will do? The craving can get pretty desperate during that midday lull or late at night especially when all the shops are closed.
On contrary I woke up this morning wanting french toast and while passing an article yesterday in my copy of delicious was a recipe for doughnut french toast... well I just had to make that of course.

doughnut french toast
2 large free-range eggs
60ml milk
2 tsp good vanilla extract
4 slices of rustic chunky white bread
(cut thin)
25g butter, plus a splash of oil for frying
50g caster sugar
1 tsp cinnamon

1. Beat the eggs with the milk and vanilla in a shallow bowl or plate with a lip. Soak the bread in the eggy mixture for 3-5 min on each side.
2. Heat the butter and oil in a frying pan and add the egg-soaked bread until golden and scorched in places. Put the sugar and cinnamon on a plate and dip the cooked bread until coated in sugar like a sugared doughnut.

This was quite the sugarlicious treat, a little to sweet for my liking especially in the morning, but this at night would be pretty darn good. Plus I liked the sugar crunch. But I won't lie and say I wouldn't mind waking up to this in morning with a piping hot cup of coffee if someone made it for me though.

I would also like to thank Uncle Beef for featuring some of my spice on his blog the other day. Cheers!
