Recipe: French toast with rose and orange

French toast with rose and orange! 🇫🇷🍞

Who doesn’t love a good brunch? This one is a favourite, so you definitely have to try it – it is 100% plant-based and 10% healthy 😂. We love the combo of rose with orange, especially with a dash of cinnamon and cardamom! They are just what you need to overcome those soggy end of summer days.

PS: it’s a great way to get rid of your stale bread as well!

The recipe below is enough to make about 6-8 French toasts (if you skip breakfast, it’s enough for two 😉). Let us know what you think in the comments! 👇🏼👇🏼

Ingredients for the toasts:

  • 6 to 8 slices of (whole wheat) bread
  • 500ml (about 2 cups) non-dairy milk (we usually use soy and/or coconut)
  • 3 tbsp of millet flour (spelt, built or whole wheat)
  • 1 tbsp cornstarch
  • 2 tbsp maple syrup or vanilla sugar
  • 2 to 3 tbsp of rose water
  • 2 tsp of ground cinnamon
  • 2 tsp of ground cardamom
  • Margarine or coconut oil for baking

So where’s the orange at? Well, we like to turn the remaining batter into a sweet orangy roux! Ingredients:

  • Remaining batter
  • 1 orange (juiced and grated)
  • 2 tbsp maple syrup or sugar
  • 1 or 2 tbsp of rose water

Instructions:

  1. Start by creating the batter – throw in all ingredients (except for the slices of bread and oil) in a wide mixing bowl and whisk until blended.
  2. Soak a slice of bread on both sides and toss it into a heated frying pan. Give it a minute or two on both sides until nicely golden brown.
  3. Pour the remaining batter into a small cooking pot after all slices of bread are turned into toast. Heat it up slowly and stir well until it turns into a thick roux.
  4. Add the orange juice, grated peel, sugar/maple and some rose water and stir well and heat the roux for another minute.
  5. Pour the sweet roux into a container and stack the toasts.
  6. Decorate and enjoy!
