French Toast with Vanilla, Cinnamon and Agave Nectar

It is Priscilla's (Priscila's Baking Adventures) fault. Yup, she did it. She posted a recipe titled 'french toast with vanilla and cinnamon'. Gosh, how do you resist? I could not. Now, I must state this now and hope you stick with me: I do not have a photo. I started off just trying to modify a recipe and ended up whirling my family into such a frenzy over having french toast that it was attacked with little evidence that it ever existed. Try yourself and find out how good these two recipes are!

Ingredients:
6 slices organic whole wheat bread
6 eggs
1/2 cup 1% milk
3 tbsp. Madagascar pure vanilla
1.5 tbsp. cinnamon
Organic Agave Nectar

Directions:
1. Whisk eggs. Spray a skillet with non-stick spray (I used 'butter') and set burner to medium.
2. Add milk, vanilla, and cinnamon and mix well.
3. Coat bread very well with egg mixture. Place in pan. Cook on stove flipping once.
4. I used a small amount of butter and then drizzled agave nectar on each piece.

Apparently I am an amazing mother having invented the best breakfast ever. I, on the other hand, felt a pang of guilt having never offered french toast to either child in their lives. YIKES!

This looks yummy! Trader Joe's just started carrying a agave/maple syrup blend. It has no sugar added just maple syrup and agave, yum! I'll have to try it with this:)~

Sounds luscious! I would have gone with the butter as well, sometimes you just have to!

Jennifer-- I havent received your last bunch of posts, maybe 7 or so. I just received a bunch today so hopefully now, I will receive all I wonder what happened? Anyway, this french toast looks terrific. I love the addition of the agave nectar!

You're right, you can't not make this! French toast is a favorite in our house too!

Any time the food disappears the way you describe it is clear that something was done well!

If I have the time, I like to leave the custard in the fridge overnight to intensify in flavor, a' la Alton Brown.

Jennifer said...

Hi Sara-I did actually have some leftover so we made it again the next morning and you are correct, the flavors are even mor intense and delcivious.

You don't need to sell me on french toast :) The agave nectar is something I've not tried but I guess I could sneak a little honey in there instead...

Thanks for the article. I use agave in all sorts of dishes, cakes and even drinks. I started with small bottles and now buy gallons at a time.
The last few times I ordered it online at Whole And Natural.com. They have all sizes at very reasonable prices and ship fast.

I agree, how do you resist a recipe like that? I really don't think you need a photo, and in fact posting one would only get my heart rate going. I've never had agave nectar, but I'm definitely going to look for it now. Thanks for sharing this!

I love the fact that you have no photo. Takes some of the pressure off. But, what a great reason for not having one. Can't ask for more than that! Your recipe sounds good. I've never tried Agave nectar before but have been tempted to add it into my cart several times. Maybe now I will.
