Love French Toasts

A few months ago, to celebrate our 1 year anniversary I prepared this heart shaped french toasts for my boyfriend.

At the time I did not plan on posting this recipe on expatcucina. However, when I was done I found them to be so cute and such a sweet idea for a romantic breakfast or alsofor  a fun weekend brunch with your kids.

All you need are heart-shaped cookie cutters of different sizes, colorful spinkles and then all the standard ingredients for making french toasts!

Ingredients (serves 2):

  • 6 slices of bread
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/3 cup whole fat milk
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla bean paste
  • 2 tbsp sugar
  • 2 tbsp canola oil
  • syrup
  • chocolate and colorful sprinkles
  • 2 tbsp powdered sugar

Start off by cutting off your bread into hearts


set them aside


In a bowl beat eggs, sugar, milk and vanilla. Soak the bread on both sides. Heat about 2 tbsp of canola oil in a skillet and start frying the soaked hearts of bread



Cook them on both sides until they get a nice golden-brown color. Remove from the skillet and place the heart-shaped french toast on a serving plate. Sprinkle with chocolate and colorful sprinkles, dust them with powdered sugar and last drizzle some syrup on top


Serve immediately with a hot cup of cuppuccino 🙂
