Chocolate French Toast

Today the children have a student free day at school, so it's a holiday. The weather is miserable. We needed holiday food, we needed chocolate for breakfast. Instead of our favourite chocolate and berry pancakes, I felt like something different. I knew just the thing. I dug out this recipe, a Bill Granger recipe from a 2007 copy of Delicious magazine.

Chocolate French Toast

serves 4

• 3 eggs
• 3/4 cup milk
• 1 tablespoon caster sugar
• pinch of salt
• 20 grams unsalted butter
• 8 slices of white bread
• 100 grams dark chocolate (not 70 percent)

to serve

• icing sugar

Combine the egg, milk, sugar and salt in a large, shallow bowl. Heat half the butter in a fry pan at medium heat. Dip 2 bread slices in the egg mixture and place into the pan. Sprinkle each slice with a quarter of the chocolate. Dip 2 more bread slices in the egg mixture and place on top of the chocolate. Press down gently with an egg flip. Cook for 3 minutes on each side or until golden brown. Remove and set aside. Repeat with the remaining bread and chocolate. Slice in half or into fingers. Sprinkle with icing sugar and serve immediately.
