FOR THE GLUTTON’s

Churro French Toast

The city I grew up in, Winnipeg, has over 100 languages spoken.  Culture is diverse, and celebrated (you’ll be hard-pressed to find a more culturally accepting city, we love new people!)

I digress.  As a result, many of my good friends are South American, and Churros are a favourite dessert of theirs.  However, I didn’t end up trying them until my move to Australia, randomly!  I was instantly in love: deep fried goodness, cinnamon sugar, syrup-y dipping sauces…

The other morning I was wanting to get creative in the kitchen, and my sweet-tooth was definitely dominant.  The below was the result..

**Disclaimer: these are very sweet, having something savoury on the side is recommended.

The Toast

  • 1 french roll
  • 3 eggs
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 2 tsp vanilla
  • pinch cinnamon
  • tiny pinch nutmeg
  • 2 tbsp butter (regular, with salt!), melted

The Cinnamon Sugar

  • 2 tbsp confectioner’s sugar
  • 3 tbsp brown sugar
  • 1 tsp cinnamon

Cream Cheese Icing

Directions:

Cream Cheese Icing: Using a handmixer, blend cream cheese until soft.  Add remaining ingredients, blend until smooth.

Cinnamon Sugar: Combine all ingredients

The Toast: Slice french roll to desired thickness.  Combine remaining ingredients. Dip either side of bread into egg mixture.  Fry over medium heat (with non-stick pan you won’t need any oil or butter to fry in) until golden on both sides.

Assembly: Once toast is fried, either dredge in cinnamon sugar or sprinkle over top.  Drizzle icing on top, or serve on the side in a bowl for dipping!
