PREP TIME: 5minutes
COOK TIME: 10minutes
TOTAL TIME: 15minutes
Servings: 6thick slices
1 cup (240mls)plant-based milk
4½ oz (130grams)extra firm tofu (equates to about ½ a very packed cup)
2tablespoonssugar, cane, turbinado or white (not brown or coconut sugar)
1tablespoonOPTIONAL vegan butter, plus a little extra for brushing on the griddle/pan
6 thick slicescrusty, sturdy, white bread, it should be a couple of days old (use gluten-free bread if necessary)
Add everything except the bread to a blender and blend until completely smooth.
Preheat a griddle or a pan over a medium/low heat.
Brush the griddle/pan with a little vegan butter (oil can be used instead but butter tastes better).
Pour the blended 'custard' into a wide bowl and dip the bread in it. Leave it to sit for around 20 seconds then turn over and leave for another 20 seconds. Make sure all areas are covered, then lift it out and quickly dip the crust around the edges.
Carefully place the custardy bread slices onto the preheated griddle or pan. Cook for around 4-5 minutes or until deeply golden, then flip carefully and cook for another 4-5 minutes on the other side, or until deeply golden. Try to leave it alone and not peek while it's cooking. If you move it too early the golden surface can get damaged and not look quite so pretty.
Remove from the pan and serve immediately.
Leftovers and storageFrench Toast is best when eaten fresh. If you have any leftovers though, keep them in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 3 days and reheat on a griddle or in a frying pan over a low heat.Leftover custard can be kept in a sealed container or jar in the fridge for up to 4 days. It might thicken a bit but before you use it just add a drop or two of plant milk and give it a quick whisk before dipping your bread and cooking it.
