Method

 

Prepare the batter:
In a blender, combine all ingredients until smooth. Set aside.

Prepare the French toast:

Place the sliced bread into the batter and soak for about 1 minute. On a flat pan, flat grill or large fry pan, add 1 tablespoon of non-dairy margarine and melt. Once melted, put slices of the soaked bread onto the grill or pan. Grill on medium heat for 3 to 4 minutes, flip the bread and cook until the other side is lightly golden.

Serve with the fresh fruit, cashew vanilla cream and bourbon-spiced maple syrup, if desired.

Tip of the day

 
Carving meat
Always allow your roast to rest for 5 to 15 minutes before carving so that the juices can be reabsorbed and the meat presents an even surface when sliced. Use a short- or long-bladed knife, and a two-pronged carving fork with a guard. To prevent the meat from losing juice, steady it with the flat of the fork, rather than piercing.
