One gadget we came home with was a Powdered Sugar Spoon. At our house, powdered sugar is a must on French Toast and I find it such a hassle to have to take out the large sifter for such a small task. The best sifter we have is an antique, and I try not to use it because the paint continues to chip off. I'd like to preserve that treasure. The new sifter we picked up at Target is a piece of junk, if I say so myself. It doesn't work well. The sifting apparatus jams regularly and it causes more frustration that it is worth. Often we just use a very large strainer type sifter for making frosting, but for our French Toast, this little spoon looked very appealing.
|The Powdered Sugar Spoon|
1/4 cup milk
egg bread or other hearty white bread (about 6-8 slices)
cinnamon and sugar mixture
pie plate for mixing
|I keep cinnamon and sugar mixture in shaker for everyday use|
|Beat eggs and milk with fork|
Place coated bread on griddle. Sprinkle each piece of bread with cinnamon and sugar.
|We have a non-stick griddle. If using a pan, a little butter in the bottom of the pan makes the bread so tasty!|
Cook for a minute or so until golden brown. Flip over and let other side cook.
Place cooked French Toast on plate, butter, and then sprinkle with powdered sugar. If using a little Powdered Sugar Spoon like we bought, it helps if you just put a little on the spoon so it doesn't fall from the sides. Our daughter informed me she likes the big lumps of powdered sugar. Of course she does!
