Today I would like to share with you the recipe for a nice autumn breakfast to savour. It can also be a recommendation for afternoon tea served with hot tea or fragrant, black-as-night coffee. You can make the French toast with caramelized pears in a few moments, so you have a lot of time to relish and enjoy good company.
If you want to prepare a dry version of the French toast, for example with bacon and eggs, use good quality bread for toast. If like me you want to savour it with a sweet breakfast, use challah – no other bread will taste better.
Ingredients (for 2 people)
6 slices of challah
150ml of milk
3 tablespoons of clarified butter
2 big hard pears
3-4 tablespoons of maple syrup
2-3 tablespoons of lemon juice
half a teaspoon of cinnamon
Wash the pears, remove the cores and cube them. Heat the maple syrup in a pan, add the pears and lemon juice and boil until the pears are glazy but still hard.
Put the eggs into a bowl and beat them. Pour the milk into a separate bowl. Melt the butter in a pan. Quickly soak the challah slices in the milk and then in the eggs and fry until they are golden.
Serve at once with the caramelized pears.
Enjoy your meal!
