Egg and Dairy-Free French Toast

Look at that sweet face <3

Valentine’s Day is coming! While I am not a Valentine’s Day Pro, I know that breakfast in bed made by my significant other is something I hope to one day experience. My Valentine for the last … *cough* six *cough* years has been my boxer, Rudy. It’s pretty safe to say he won’t be spoiling me with a French Toast laden breakfast in bed this year either. That said, this French Toast is perfect for anyone looking to make breakfast for their vegan/dairy-free/egg-free significant other!

When I started thinking about what to write for this recipe I was stuck. I’ve eaten French Toast loads of times but I could not think of anything! Childhood -nope, adolescence -nada… then it hit me, College!

French Toast: The College Years

French ToastThe fall semester of my senior year is arguably my favorite part of college. I lived just off campus in a townhouse/apt. Reunited with a real kitchen again and couldn’t be happier. With my class schedule, I started Waffle Wednesdays, where I made a giant batch ofwaffle batter and friends came over throughout the day to have waffles and catch up.

One of my friends was a manager at Jimmy John’s and he would let me have leftover loaves of day-old bread that they didn’t sell. (Which they sell for like, $0.50 so I don’t know why more people didn’t buy them…) So, I went on to add a French Toast day twice a month. Homemade breakfast is just better than the make your own breakfast in the dining hall!

Fast Forward: Present Day

While I don’t have French Toast Days for anyone but myself anymore, it’s still a fun way to treat myself. I’m going on year 7 of being vegan and my vegan version of French Toast is tasty and droolworthy, even in pictures. In fact, this is a Facebook recipe request!

Note: If you follow me on social media (Instagram especially: @tastykaitis) you will see a lot of food. Sometimes the food comes with a recipe, sometimes I just whip something up and take a picture. If you see something that makes you hungry, leave me a comment asking for the recipe! I will do my best to get the recipe up on the blog the following week!

Egg/Dairy-Free French Toast

Egg/Dairy-Free French Toast

Ingredients

  • 1- 15 oz can Full Fat Coconut Milk
  • 1/4 cup Ener-G Egg Replacement Powder (just the powder, no water necessary)
  • 1 TBSP Earth Balance Margarine, melted
  • 1 1/2 tsp Cinnamon
  • 2 TBSP Sugar
  • 1 tsp Vanilla Extract
  • French Baguette *see Day Before note below
  • Maple Syrup
  • Powdered Sugar

Instructions

    The Day Before:
  1. Slice your bread 1/2 inch thick and leave out to dry. This helps the bread soak up the custard without getting left with a total goo center after frying.
    The Day Of:
  1. Whisk together Ener-g powder, coconut milk, melted Earth Balance, cinnamon, sugar, and vanilla in a shallow container such as a pie plate. Set aside to for a few minutes to thicken.
  2. In a 10-inch or 12-inch skillet, melt 1 tsp Earth Balance over medium heat. Dip bread in custard mixture so that both sides are coated.
  3. Fry slices until golden brown, then flip to cook the other side.
  4. Sprinkle with powdered sugar and serve with syrup.
