I grew up loving sweet breakfast dishes like pancakes, French toast, cinnamon rolls, but then as I got older, I began to only eat savory dishes. Once in a while though, I will have cravings and indulge in something sweet. I have been wanting French toast and was happy to see I had all the ingredients at home to make it. It’s so easy to make and doesn’t take that long. Just mix together your batter for the bread, dip the bread in, and fry in a pan with butter! It’s good to eat with just syrup but I added sliced strawberries and powdered sugar.. I was sad to see I ran out of sugar though and dusted the last bits I had left. There definitely needs to be more sugar! Maybe next time, I can ask my neighbor for a cup of powdered sugar? 🙂
