Cinnamon French Toast with Dark Chocolate Sauce & Vanilla Whipped Cream 
by Season with Spice 


French toast: 
2 eggs & 1/4 cup milk, per three slices of thick-cut bread
Dashes of Season with Spice's Ground Cinnamon and Ground Ginger, and Nutmeg Powder

Chocolate Sauce: 
50g good quality dark chocolate - chopped
1/3 cup milk or half & half
1-2 tsp maple syrup
1/2 tsp vanilla bean powder or 1 tsp vanilla extract 

Vanilla Whipped Cream (see recipe)

1. Make whipped cream first thing in the morning (or the night before).
2. Make the chocolate sauce next. Fill a small pot a quarter high with water, and heat on low. Place the dark chocolate and milk (or half & half) in a small stainless steel bowl, and then place the bowl into the pot. Stir frequently to evenly melt the chocolate. Once it is melted and smooth, add in one tablespoon of milk at a time until the sauce reaches the desired consistency. Finally, add in vanilla and maple syrup. Mix well to combine.
3. For the French toast, whip up the eggs and milk until frothy, then add in the spices and mix well. Add a little vegetable oil to a frying pan and heat on medium fire. As the pan is heating, soak one slice of bread on both sides and transfer to the pan. Cook until golden brown on each side.
