Fattiga riddare – sweet eggy bread

When we make french toast in Sweden it is slightly different, we call it Fattiga riddare (which means poor knights), and it is just a sweeter version of french toast/eggy bread. It is usually served as a afternoon snack for children och as dessert, but you can also have it for breakfast like I had today.

1 slice per portion might sound like it won’t be enough, but I find this very filling so it is enough for me. If you want some more, just double the recipe.

Fattiga riddare, 2 portions

2 slices of white bread

1 egg

200 ml milk

75 ml flour

a pinch of salt

a knob of butter

granulated sugar

ground cinnamon

I cut the slices in half, but there is no need for that. Whisk together the eggs, milk, flour and salt. Dip the bread in it, make sure it is properly coated. Fry the slices golden och both sides in the butter on medium heat. Thereafter dip the bread in the sugar mixed with some cinnamon (after taste). Enjoy immediately.
