There isn’t much on the breakfast table that looks as good as maple syrup glistening French toast. Until you add the powdered sugar and raspberries! This tasted every bit as good as it looks. We used our left over Easter bread; a light bread with raisins and golden raisins. Being a day old, the bread soaks up the batter better. (Say that 6 times fast!) I like to cook as light as possible, so I only used egg whites and a touch of skim milk for the batter. Throw it on a hot griddle with a touch of cooking spray (once again trying to keep it light) until golden brown. Top it off with pure maple syrup, raspberries and a sprinkle of powdered sugar. Mmmmmmm.
We decided to have some Tart Cherry Stomp to go with our French toast. This was our first time trying this 100% fruit nectar. Yum…tart and sweet, a great combination. Good morning to you!!
Easter bread french toast for breakfast! (click me and make me bigger)
Tart Cherry Stomp from Red Jacket Orchards, in Geneva.
I was rollin’ down the street (on the way back from the store), laid back (with my mind on my honey tangerines and my honey tangerines on my mind)….and I thought hey, Snoop D-O-Double-G has a good idea! Gin and juice.
This seemed like a perfect time to get out my snazzy blue bottle of Bluecoat American Dry Gin. The honey tangerine juice is very light and sweet, and it mixed well with the slight citrus in the Bluecoat. So… just the gin and juice would have been fine, but I was looking for a few more layers of flavor. Adding some Pimm’s No.1 and a little maple syrup did the trick.
Pour 1 1/2 oz. Bluecoat American Dry Gin, 1 1/2 oz. fresh squeezed honey tangerine juice, 1 1/2 oz Pimm’s No.1, and 2 teaspoons pure maple syrup over ice in a rocks glass. Stir and garnish with a half slice of honey tangerine. Refreshing and complex! Cheers!
