Yeah, like I said. It's perfect. And easy. I haven't tried it with Just Egg, solely because it's more expensive than Follow Your Heart's Vegan Egg, and the FYH egg works so well, I have no need to change anything. I will say the new formula they're using for Just is a serious texture upgrade when in a scrambling situation.
For this recipe, I used super thick "Texas Toast", it's probably over an inch thick. Thinner bread works too, but you won't need as much batter or to cook them as long. The two most important parts are letting the bread get slightly stale, and cooking them low and slow. Letting the bread dehydrate on a wire rack overnight, makes for better absorption and texture, and cooking them low and slow, ensures the vegan egg cooks all the way through, before burning the outside. Also if you have a little digital scale that measures grams, that's the most accurate. I highly recommend getting one.
Vegan French Toast Perfection
Enough batter for 8 thick slices of bread.
8 slices thick cut day old bread
20g Follow Your Heart Vegan Egg Powder (about 2 tablespoons)
340g cold water (just under 1 1/2 cups)
80g plain unsweetened milk (about 1/3 cup)
60g granulated sugar (about 1/4 cup)
2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
½ teaspoon vanilla extract
⅛ teaspoon salt
pinch ground nutmeg
light oil for frying
butter for serving
syrup for serving
powdered sugar for serving
In a large measuring cup add the water and egg powder, and whisk vigorously until thickened.
Whisk in the milk, sugar, cinnamon, vanilla, salt and nutmeg.
Pour batter into a vessel with high sides (like a small casserole), so that the batter is about 1/2 inch deep.
Heat a half teaspoon of oil in a wide non stick or well seasoned cast iron skillet (or several skillets for speed and efficiency) to medium low.
Submerge a slice of bread in the batter, and turn it a few times to make sure it's completely coated.
Immediately place in the heated pan. There should be a very low sizzle. Cook 5 to 7 minutes until browned and caramelized, then flip, adding a little more oil to make sure the other side doesn't stick.
Cook 5 to 7 minutes until browned and caramelized.
Serve with butter, syrup, powdered sugar, sausage, egg, etc.
