Don’t expect glamourous silverware or comfortable seating at Auntie’s and Uncles. Do expect a long wait for buttery comfort food in your Uncle’s kitchen decorated in the 50’s.

What a nice and sunny weather! I decided to make some brunch and it turned out so nicely I took a pic of it under the sun! The bread might look really brown like burnt toast… but it’s actually burnt sugar on french toast! I used to make french toast the Hong Kong cafe way – coat with eggs then deep fry in oil. I learned the traditional way from my aunt:
For one serving, you need:
2 pieces of bread (even if stale!)
sugar (I used brown sugar)
- Heat a frying pan at medium. Grease with butter. When frying stuff, it is important for the grease to be hot enough so your food won’t end up absorbing it.
- Whisk egg and sugar in a flat dish. Add lots of sugar if you’ve got a sweet tooth!
- Dip both sides of bread in egg, then place in pan.
- Stay close to the stove! The sugar burns quickly, so you’ll be getting burnt toast before you know it — like one of mine.
- When it looks brown and no liquid egg is left, flip and cook the other side until desired burnt-ness.
- Serve with jam, syrup, honey, icing sugar, or any sweet or savory spread you like. Goes well with your favourite breakfast food!
