Yummy Banana French Toast
Being a vegan, you gotta get pretty creative to revamp recipes that normally use eggs. I most frequently use bananas but have also used ground flax, apple sauce and this weird cool powder called ener-g egg replacer I get at my local natural foods store.
Anyway this was made for me by my (idk bff) Rich. He always makes me delicious food and I love him forever for it (along with many other valid reasons) it was kind of a "thrown together" type of deal so I re-made it today with more of a recipe feel.
1 cup "milk"
1/4 cup flour
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tbsp corn starch (for thickening!)
1 tsp vanilla extract
6 Slices of bread
Whatever you want really. I recommend confectioners sugar, margarine and agave nectar. Also the old standby maple syrup. Chocolate sauce, peanut butter, jam... I could go on for days! Yum!
Break out that blender or food processor and mix all ingredients (minus the bread duh) together until smooth! Put the mixture in a flat bottomed bowl (big enough to lay the bread flat in!)
Get a medium sized pan and use a little margarine to coat the pan.
On medium low heat warm up your pan, I always work with an already warm pan so my food cooks evenly! Lay a slice o' bread in the batter bowl and coat both sides, don't let it sit too long, no one likes soggy toast. Put it in the pan and let it cook maybe 2 minutes on each side, I don't know how well your stove works so you better just check it. The toast is done when its a toasty light brown!
Top with a slab of margarine, a sprinkling of powdered sugar and some agave or maple syrup! Okay now bring me my breakfast in bed! Enjoy!!
