Vegan French Toast

We recently bought Lucy Watsons vegan cookbook. We are not vegan but we love trying new recipes and were intrigued by her cook book. Its actually really good and there are many recipes we would make. We love incorporating a few vegan meals into our diet it mixes things up and bit and vegan food certainly doesn’t have to be boring.

As Rach does not like eggs so vegan french toast is right up her street. We attempted to make them one Sunday morning as it looked like the perfect breakfast choice. The recipe is on page 23 of her cookbook. Lucy makes hers with spiced plums, but we used bananas instead and served ours with raspberries too.

Lucy makes hers in 2 pans, but we just used one, hope you enjoy our version!

Caramelised banana:
3 tbsp vegan butter
3 tbsp coconut sugar
2 bananas, sliced

200ml almond milk
2 tbsp coconut sugar
1/2 tsp ground cinnnamon
2 tbsp flour
2-4 thick slices of bloomer or sourdough bread

1. For the caramelised bananas, put the butter and sugar in a pan over a high heat. Once melted add the banana slices and cook on both sides. They will look golden and be sticky too.
2. Pour the milk into a bowl/jug and whisk in the flour, sugar and cinnamon.
iced bread into the mixture coated well.
3. Take the slices of bead and cover in the liquid mixture. Add to the pan of bananas, you may want to add more butter too.
4. Cook on both sides until golden brown and crisy
5. If the bananas are getting too soft, remove from the pan and set aside.
6. Serve with raspberries and enjoy
