French toast with peach syrup

Throughout the world, breakfast starts off with a fresh mind and body. This morning was another one of those wonderful days at my brother’s house. My brother and sister-in-law, love to experiment on different cuisines and this is one that I would like to share with all of you, that I found truly innovative. She decided on preparing French toast for the family. French toast is obviously the favorite with every household, it is simple to make this great breakfast. Take a pound of whole wheat bread, take three eggs, beat it with a hand held blender or a fork to infuse air (the albumin and the yolk need to mix well). To this add three teaspoon sugar, 1teaspoon salt, 1 cup milk, and cinnamon powder. Mix all this thoroughly. Prepare the peach syrup by taking fresh peaches peel and core them, cut them into quarters. Set them aside. In a medium pan mix ¼ cup sugar and 1 cup water and bring to a boil, add the quartered peaches to the solution and leave let rest in the solution until soft. Immerse each slice of bread into the mixture and place it on a heated griddle or skillet heating slowly until bottom is brown. Turn and brown the other side. When you are ready to serve, for one portion (two slices) of French toast take four pieces of peach with the syrup and reduce the solution to a semi-thick consistency or until it coats the back of a spoon. Place two pieces of French toast on the plate and garnish it with the quarter peaches and pour the syrup on top the toast and sprinkle with powdered sugar. It is just mouth watering. Enjoy!

Suji Chet i like the peach syrup variation to the French toast..normally i was used to drizzling the toast with some more powdered sugar or sometimes with maple syrup.. also it would be easier to make the peach syrup with canned peaches as well right..

Yes that is right, you can surely use canned peaches.For a complete satisfaction i would go for fresh peaches and make a syrup from scratch.
