Chocolate French Toast

I have loved French toast (or eggy bread as we called it as kids) as long as I can remember. I saw this sweet version in this month's Taste magazine, and thought it sounded a fun idea for lunch or brunch.

Chocolate French Toast
Serves 4

2 eggs
Large tin evaporated milk
3 tbsp cocoa powder
2 tbsp sugar
Loaf bread (recipe suggested French stick, which would be lovely. I just used white sliced bread, which was fine, and better for kids who aren't so keen on crusts!)
Bananas, stawberries and maple syrup to serve
  • Whisk eggs, milk, cocoa and sugar together until well combined.
  • Dip each slice of bread in the mixture so that both sides are well coated.
  • Shallow fry in a large frying pan, apprpximately 3 minutes on each side.
  • Serve with sliced fruit, and drizzle with maple syrup.

This was really lovely. It was quite rich, so the fruit topping was very welcome.
