For the Kelantanese sweet tooth.

Salam, allo. I remembered making this last year after I saw this at Youtube, and well, anyone who has Kelantanese tastebuds would definitely give out their approval! :P Agak manis sikit, jadi masa sy buat tu kurangkan sikit gula dia & strawberry jam tu sy guna yang biasa ajelaa, malasla nak buat yg sdr.

TITLE: Doughnut french toast.

AIM: To satisfy any sweet tooth who haven't enough time (or enough rajin-tulangness) :]

MATERIALS: 1 egg, 2 tbsp milk, 2 tsp vanilla, 1/4 cup castor sugar, 1 slice bread cut in half, 1 tbsp butter, 1 tsp vegetable oil (you don't have to use it).

APPARATUS: Bowl, fork (or anything to beat up the egg mixture), pan, blender (don't have to use this also).

1. Combine egg, milk and vanilla in a bowl and mix it well.
2. Place the half-breads (a piece of bread was cut into two) into the bowl and let it soak up the egg mixture and then turn the bread to the other side.
3. Turn the heat on the pan.
4. Put some butter on the pan and some vegetable oil onto the butter if you like.
5. After both sides are golden brown (or less brown according to your pleasure) remove the bread from the pan.
6. Coat the bread with castor sugar, coat on both sides.

* Nigella made home-made strawberry sauce: Place 4-5 strawberries in blender, add 1/4 cup of icing sugar, a squirt of lemon juice and blend together and pour over the french toast. But, no fuss, you can just use the one in the fridge or better yet, not using jam at all. Although I think the home-made and fresh one is better, though.

1. The bread is better off a bit stale (a bit hard) so it can soak up the egg mixture better. And give some time for each side of the bread to soak the mixture.
2. Some vegetable oil was poured on the butter in the pan, so that it will stop the butter burning. But I just hold the pan a bit higher from the errr.. whatdya call it? The fire thingy.
3. It's better if you don't coat the bread with castor sugar too much, because it'll be too sweet. But then again, if it suits to your liking, ok ah.
4. Yeah, you usually put just a few drops of vanilla, not teaspoons, but trust me, you need teaspoons of it.
5. Note that the materials stated above is only for one piece of bread (then it was cut in halves), so it's a bit costly to make and you are most likely to get a lecture from your mother. You've been warned.

CONCLUSION: You can now savour them. Enjoy! :D And make sure you give some to your mother, it will sooth and calm her up a bit :P
