Lavender French Toast

my temporarily – and now repaired, i.e. brand new – broken oven almost resulted in an oven-gate. needless to say, i knew how to ship around it. being the creative me, i dreamed up an awfully – or exquisitely – french dessert (that passes as breakfast, too). because all good things are somehow, eventually french. patisserie, perfumes, maccarons, paris, lingerie, french kisses, french fries, anyone? yup, the label “french” is sort of a guarantee and a promise that it will be really good and a little bit decadent. in this case, the decadence is emphasized by the lavender, which makes it just slightly more girly but also that much more of a thing.

lavender french toast
serves two

ingredients:
6 slices of bread (from the day before), halved
2 eggs
1 cup milk
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1 tbsp. sugar
1 pinch salt
1-2 tbsp. dried lavender buds
2 tbsp. butter or coconut oil, for frying
a little confectioners’ sugar, for dusting

directions:
whisk the eggs with a fork, then add milk, vanilla, sugar, salt and lavender. bathe the bread slices one at a time in the milk mix, until well soaked. heat the butter or coconut oil in a frying pan and fry the french toast slices in batches in it, until they’re dark a golden brown. dust with a little confectioners’ sugar while still in the pan, flip them around to coat them in the melting sugar and then serve hot.
