This is a delicious, non-fat, non-dairy French Toast. It's really different and tastes great.
- 1 large banana
- 4 large strawberries
- 1⁄3 cup apple juice
- 1⁄2 teaspoon cinnamon
- 6 slices whole wheat bread
- Blend apple juice, fruit, and cinnamon in blender.
- Coat 2 large nonstick pans with cooking spray or a light coating of oil, and heat over medium.
- Dip bread briefly in the fruit mixture until just coated, (do not oversoak), and add 3 slices per pan.
- Cook on both sides until just beginning to brown, turning it over two or three times on each side to minimize sticking.
- Serve with maple syrup.
This is a great French Toast! A fruity, cinnamony taste with a nice moist texture. I had no problem with it being too soggy, as did the previous reviewer. I would guess that the previous reviewer soaked it too long and therefore ended up with an overly wet texture. The trick is to just dip it quickly in the fruit mixture. It is moister than regular French Toast because of the all-fruit mixture, but that's what I loved about it. I served it to my whole family and they also loved both the texture and the taste. And as an extra added benefit, it's completely nonfat. Tip: Use a good, hearty whole wheat bread. This is a keeper!
This recipe did not work for me .. it was so soggy I couldn't even turn it over .. I tried baking some in the oven without success .. I don't think I'll try it again ..
I scaled down to 1 serving and used strawberry syrup instead of strawberries, which I didn't have. My "batter" was pretty thick so I spooned it over the bread and then spread it, instead of dipping it in the batter. As a result the bread didn't absorb too much of the flavour, but it still tasted pretty good. I didn't have any problems with the bread sticking to the pan, as I used a non-stick one and was pretty generous with the cooking spray. This dish kinda has the flavour of a pancake, and works well when time is short! Thanks Meryl... next time I'd like to try this with real strawberries.
