Day 4: Chai French Toast with sauce

Yield: 3-4 slices
Time (Start to Finish): 30 min

3-4 slices bread (I used sourdough)

1 egg
¼ cup cream
1/8 tsp salt
1/3 cup chai powder (trader joes, or add cinnamon, cloves, ginger, all spice and cardamom to equal 3 tbsp.)
1 tsp vanilla
1 tsp nutmeg

butter for pan (2-3 Tbsp for 2 rounds)

3-4 Tbsp sour cream
4-5 Tbsp maple syrup
1 peach
sprinkle cinnamon

1. mix egg, cream, salt, powder, vanilla and nutmeg in a bowl that is wide enough to dunk bread into
2. heat pan to mid-high and add butter until sizzling and melted.
3. Dunk bread in mixture and place in pan
4. Cook each side until brown
5. In separate bowl mix sour cream and maple syrup
6. Slice up peach into thin long slices
7. Put toast on plate, drizzle with sauce and add peaches on top. You can sprinkle cinnamon on top

Rating: 4.5 strawberries
Notes: this recipe rocked my world. Its mainly the maple syrup sour cream sauce that is utterly fantastic and I think can be added to most breakfasty things. The French toast is spicy and perfect. I didn’t even need to add butter or extra syrup on top.

I just made this!! Except I had to use strawberries, no peaches in the house. It was amazing! Not exactly a light breakfast.
