Making The Batter
- To a shallow bowl or baking dish add cornstarch, then slowly add in dairy-free milk while whisking.
- Whisk fully to ensure there are no clumps.
- Then add maple syrup, vanilla extract, black salt (or sea salt), cinnamon, ripe mashed banana (adds custardy texture and subtle sweetness — leave out if you dislike banana), and turmeric (optional — for color).
- Whisk again to combine.
Cooking The Frech Toast
- Heat a large skillet over medium heat.
- Add your bread slices to the batter and soak on each side for 15-20 seconds. They shouldn’t be super soggy, but they should be well coated. Option to dust each side with a bit more cinnamon.
- Add a bit of vegan butter to the hot skillet and as many pieces of French toast as will fit comfortably.
- Cook for 2 minutes, or until the underside is golden brown. Then flip with a fork or spatula and cook for 2 minutes more, or until both sides are golden brown and caramelized.
- Repeat as needed until all French toast is prepared.
Serve with vegan butter or nut butter, fresh fruit, and maple syrup. You could also sprinkle with organic powdered sugar or add coconut whipped cream for a more decadent touch.
