Matcha French Toast

Packed with white chocolate, matcha and raspberries, this might be the yummiest French toast ever.

Ingredients

  • 1 loaf egg bread, crusts removed
  • White chocolate squares
  • Fresh raspberries (+ extra for topping)
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 tablespoon matcha green tea powder
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter
  • Freshly whipped cream
  • Matcha green tea powder, for dusting

Steps

  1. Slice the egg bread into 4 large slices and slice a little pocket into the side of each slice. Stuff each pocket with white chocolate and raspberries. Set aside.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk the eggs and add the matcha green tea powder. (Note: to avoid to spotty matcha colouring like in the video, heat 1/4 of the milk and dissolve the matcha in that first, then add to the egg mixture with the remaining milk. I totally forgot about this when I was filming! Agh!) Add the milk and whisk until fully combined. Place the slices of bread into the mixture and soak on each side for 5 minutes.
  3. Melt the butter in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the bread and cook on each side for 2-3 minutes, until golden. Remove the pan from the heat, place a lid on the pan and allow the bread to cook in the residual steam for 5 minutes.
  4. Top the French toast with some whipped cream and dust with matcha green tea powder. Add a couple raspberries and enjoy!
