Fruity French Toasts

I love breakfast, it’s that one single meal of the day that I can never skip!

I can easily give up on lunch or dinner but I could never miss breakfast.

In fact, every morning, no matter how early my day needs to start, I take 15 to 20 min to seat down and enjoy a nice meal. During the week my breakfast is somehow simple, milk and oats, fresh fruit and yogurt or some cookies and a cappucino.
During the weekend, instead, I like to dedicate a bit more time and treat myself with something special.

The other weekend I made this fruity pancakes with fresh strawberries, blueberries, banana and kiwis.

Here is the recipe!

Ingredients (serves 2):

  • 4 slices of bread
  • 4 eggs
  • 2 caps of milk (whole fat) or half and half
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 tbsp sugar
  • 1 cup fresh strawberries
  • 1/2 cup fresh blueberries
  • 1 kiwi
  • 1 banana
  • 1/2 cup maple syrup
  • 1 cup whipped cream
  • 1 tbsp butter or vegetable oil

Get all you need on your kitchen counter! Fruit, milk, eggs…
