I came up with this french toast when I was somehow out of vanilla. It is a fun, simple twist on ordinary french toast. I like to sprinkle sliced almonds on mine. I adds a nice crunch and looks pretty.
1/2 c. milk
2 tsp. sugar
1 Tbsp almond extract
1 tsp. nutmeg (I like whole nutmeg)
few dashes of cinnamon
Whisk all ingredients together in a shallow bowl. I use a pie plate. Place bread slices in to egg mixture flipping to coat but not allowing to get too soggy.
Fry on medium hot griddle or pan. Flipping after golden brown. Garnish with powdered sugar, syrup and sliced almonds if desired.
