For our newbies, the KFB foodie talk column – handled by Dobby of Dobbysignature – is basically for ladies and
‘guys’ that are interested in learning how to cook better ;).
Today, Dobby discusses how to make Frech toast using Agege Bread.
I have a
theory, that once breakfast is good, the rest of the day goes on
perfectly well. Our very own Naija toast is one good way to bring stale
old bread back to life. This is a recipe adopted from the popular french
toast using Agege bread. If you’re confused on what to have for
breakfast then look no further. This recipe works best if you’ve got old
dry bread although you can use any type of bread you want. The theory
applied to Naija toast is simple. Hard agege bread is dipped into a
mixture of milk and eggs then pan fried with butter and served with a
syrup by the side…Straight forward isn’t it?

• 4 tablespoons butter/ Margarine (preferably butter)
•2 eggs
•1 cup milk
•1 tablespoon sugar
•1 medium sized agege bread
•1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract – Optional
•1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg – Optional
•1/2 cup syrup, warmed
Step 1: Cut the Agege bread into equal thick slices.
Step 2:
For this step you’d need two separate bowls. In the first bowl, mix the
milk, vanilla and sugar together then set aside. In the second bowl,
whisk the eggs and nutmeg, set aside briefly.
Step 3: Heat
the butter in a medium sized pan over medium heat. Dip bread in the
milk, on both sides and immediately dip in the egg mixture and coat both
Step 4: Transfer immediately to the frying pan and fry till golden brown then flip and cook the other side till golden brown also.
Serve with warm syrup.
