Maple Glazed Peach French Toast



On a sunny Saturday morning, I woke up with a big appetite and a creative mind. Not sure how I came up with the idea of peach and maple but it sounded good. Luckily, I had all the ingredients at home. I had bought a french baguette from Acme Bread the night before, a bottle of Maple syrup imported from Canada by my sister and a big fat beautiful peach. This usually never happens so I got to work and in less than thirty minutes, I had an awesome breakfast on my plate.



Ingredients

1 French baguette
3 eggs
1 cup milk
1/2 cup maple syrup
1 peach
2 tbs rum

Directions

Peel and slice the peach like the picture below. Mix the peach with the maple syrup and rum. Cook them in a skillet for about 5 minutes or until they become a bit soft.



Beat the eggs and add the milk. Mix well and add a pinch of salt.
Slice the bread to your desired thickness ( I like them thin) and soak them in the egg mixture and let it sit for about 3,4 minutes.

Heat the oil in a pan (you need the oil to cover about 1/2 inch depth of the pan), carefully set the bread pieces in the pan and fry each side until they are golden. Remove from the pan and set them on a piece of paper towel to soak the extra oil.

Put one slice of peach on each slice of bread and pour some of the juice left from the peach and maple mix on top. You can also decorate the french toast with shaved almond and powder sugar.

Enjoy!
