Immerse yourself in the exquisite delight of Delicious French Toast, a unique take on the classic breakfast staple that promises a delightful fusion of flavours and textures. This exceptional recipe uses chickpea flour, introducing a slightly nutty essence and a protein-rich twist to the traditional dish. Infused with the sweetness of maple syrup, the chickpea flour mixture offers a perfect canvas for the warm and comforting notes of cinnamon and nutmeg. Including plant-based milk and a touch of vanilla essence further enriches the custard, delivering a velvety texture that coats each slice of bread with indulgent finesse.

The aromatic spices combined with the creamy, sweet mixture gives the bread an incredible taste, balancing the subtle earthiness of chickpea flour with the comforting sweetness of maple syrup. When cooked to golden perfection, each slice of this French toast exhibits a delightful contrast—a crisp exterior that gives way to a sumptuously soft and flavourful centre.

Normally you might find me behind the coding of our sites but over the years I have become much more concerned about what has been happening in the kitchen as well - families do that for all of us don't they? Background experience is in Account Management and Web Development but as my passion has grown for WFPB so has my desire to speak out.
