French toast the dutch way

Post  Laura on Wed Jun 04, 2008 4:28 pm

My father always made this for me and my brother when we where young, it's really really good Wink

8 slices of day-old white bread
2 eggs
¼ liter lukewarm milk
40 gram butter or margarine
2 tbsp icing sugar
1 tsp cinnamon

Mix the milk with a pinch of salt, two level tablespoons sugar and the lightly beaten eggs. Remove the crust from the bread and soak the slices in the milk and egg mix. Butter a frying pan and fry the bread slices on both sides. Serve immediately and sprinkle with remaining icing sugar and cinnamon.

The first part of the word ‘wentelteefjes’ is derived from a word meaning ‘soaked’, although the more commonly thought meaning of ‘wallow’ is not far off. ‘Teefje’ perhaps is an old word for a particular shape of pastry but also could refer to a female dog.
