French toast w/ fresh cherry sauce


Can a morning get any better than this? Lying in bed with my 2 little boys (Yes, I am a bad mom, haven’t trained them to sleep in their room. But I feel more guilty to keep them away, maybe a year later. In India we always slept with our parents until we started school at least, so the guilt hangs over my shoulders now), I was wondering what to make for breakfast. A cold rainy morning, how about a colorful breakfast to warm it up? Fresh cherry sauce and toast it was! I really want to write more of what I feel, but with my children always hovering around me, I will cut it short and come straight to the recipe. 

What I used: Serves 2, or 2 kids and an adult
2 eggs
2 tsp sugar
¼ cup milk
4 large thick bread slices
½ a stick/3 to 4 tsp of butter
8 fresh cherries, seeded
Powdered sugar to dust


Start with getting a saucepan on medium heat. While that is getting hot, crack the eggs, milk and sugar into a bowl large enough to dip the bread. Whisk it with a fork or egg beater. 

Dip the bread into the frothy mixture, let stand for 10-15 seconds on each side. 
Add a thin slice of butter into the pan and place the soaked bread. When it gets a golden brown color, turn it to the other side. Do the same for all 4 slices. Set aside.
 
In the same pan, add 2 thin slices of butter. When it begins to melt, add the cherries and cook on medium until the cherries and soft n pulpy. Mash it down with a fork and strain it. Serve the warm sauce over the toast with butter and dusted sugar. 

It is so good, believe me, you will forget gourmet french toast forever! Enjoy!
