Valentine's French Toast



I think my days for exchanging Valentine's Day cards have truly passed, however I do really like the sentiment of Valentine's. The little men in my life will always put wonderful effort into making me the most beautiful cards to treasure. In return, I will normally have a treat of some love heart shaped food to mark the day for them. They adore French Toast so these love heart shaped toasties are amorously welcomed on Valentine's morning. 
My little lady takes dusting icing sugar very seriously!

Ingredients
2 eggs
2 tbsp cream or milk
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
4 slices of bread, white or brown

25g butter
To Serve
Icing sugar, for dusting
Sliced strawberries

Method

1. Whisk together the eggs, the cream/milk and vanilla extract in a bowl.
2. Makes bread hearts using some heart shaped cutters.
2. Place a frying pan over a medium heat and melt the butter. Soak the pieces of bread on both sides in the egg mixture, then place in the pan. Cook for 2 minutes on each side, until the bread is deep golden.
3. Place on a warmed plate and dredge generously with icing sugar to serve alongside some sliced strawberries. 

Product testing is an important role for any kitchen helper!

I adore her apron Nessa. Gorgeous.
I'm with you we are far beyond exchanging cards but we do mark the day with the kids with heart shaped treats. Hope you're well. x

All good here! I love that little apron too. I really should of ironed it! I only noticed how creased it was after the pics were taken. :)

Real cooks have wrinkled aprons. Never iron an apron! The French toast is a lovely idea for the kids before they head out to school. Great photos!

I stopped ironing with child number four. He, ironically is the only one of my now adult kids who ever wears anything ironed. And because of you...I will make heart shaped French toast tomorrow for my GK's!

Thanks Ladies. I'm sure the children will love it!
That's very funny Donna. Hopefully some of mine go a similar route and then they might even do their Mammy's ironing. :)
