Chocolate French Toast (for one or two)

Adapted from Baking Bites

•1 large egg

•¼ c milk

•Vanilla, almond extract to taste (a dash of each)

•1 t brown sugar

•1 T cocoa powder

•2 slices bread

1.Whisk together egg, milk, sugar, vanilla and almond extracts in a large shallow dish. Sift in cocoa powder, mix in thoroughly.

2.Grease and preheat skillet over medium-high heat.

3.Soak each slice of bread in egg mixture, turning once (it should be completely soaked, almost soggy).

4.Cook French toast on griddle until set and browned, flipping once.

5.Serve warm, with a drizzle of chocolate syrup, maple syrup, or honey.

Notes:

•I used whole grain sandwich bread, with good results (although baguettes or brioche would be superb).

• It cooked up light, moist, and soufflé-like, with a mild chocolate flavor and a great vanilla-almond fragrance.

•Make sure to soak thoroughly, so toast is not dry. Don’t burn it—it cooks quickly!
