Introduction: RECIPE | PANDAN FRENCH TOAST

Picture of RECIPE | PANDAN FRENCH TOAST

Pandan French Toast. Say what? On the weekend, I decided to add an Asian twist to the tried and true French toast - Pandan extract! It's an extract from Pandan leaves that you can find in the tropics. The taste is hard to capture in words but it's almost a mix of coconut with a hint of vanilla and citrus. All in all, it's amazing. You can find this extract from smaller more specialized Asian grocery stores. I wish I could remember where we found mine from, but my mother-in-law bought it for me.

This is a super easy recipe. If you know how to make french toast, then this will be a breeze with a few substitutions:

  • Instead of regular milk, use canned coconut milk Instead of regular bread, use egg bread
  • Instead of maple syrup, use sweet condensed milk. (If you're not familiar with this ingredient, it's like a gooey sweet sticky form of milk that has been reduced down and it's delicious. In Asia, it's super popular as a syrup over toast. You can find this item in the canned goods aisle at most Asian supermarkets).
  • In addition to vanilla extract, I've added Pandan extract
  • Instead of non-vegan icing sugar, I'm using vegan white icing sugar. (Did you know that non-vegan white sugars use animal char to bleach the granules? YUCK!)
  • Instead of regular caged eggs, I'm using free-range organic eggs by Burnbrae Farms. Free-range organic hens produce better tasting and healthier eggs.

Well I hope you try this recipe out and if you like it, please share the recipe with your family and friends.
