Fast French Toast
This French Toast is made almost daily in our home. It’s super simple and my boys love it!  I also made some Banana Bread French Toast this morning. Using the banana bread I made on Sunday. Hubby loved it!  I hope you do too.

Swedish Pancakes – Like crepes, but Swedish!

Mix in blender:

2 c. milk

3 eggs

3 Tbsp melted butter

1 1/2 c. flour

2 Tbsp sugar

1/2 tsp salt

Pour small amount of batter onto hot, buttered griddle to make a thin pancake like crepes.  When lightly browned on under side and yellowish on top flip over and lightly brown on the other side.  Serve immediately with jam, jelly, powdered sugar, syrup, cream cheese or any other topping desired.

Fruit Glaze – This glaze goes wonderfully with the Swedish Pancakes!

2 c. of any kind of berries or peaches

1/2 c. water

1/2 to 1 c. sugar

cornstarch

In a sauce pan, place berries, sugar and water.  Bring to a boil, lower heat to a simmer and put on lid to cook the fruit.  When soft mash, put 1/8 c. of cold water in a cup and add 1 Tbsp. cornstarch.  Mix.  Pour into boiling mixture, stirring the whole time, until it thicken.  It is important you do not stop stirring!  Remove from heat and enjoy on Swedish pancakes, pancakes or waffles.

1 egg

1/3 c. milk

Then add:

Banana Bread
I jotted down this Banana Bread recipe one day from my mother. There are so many occasions when I have needed a recipe and I call her up. She is the best baker I know and a lot of these recipes are from her. Thanks, Mom!!

To add some clarification, I use 3-4 bananas per recipe, make sure the butter is softened and I often use half the amount of sugar with 1/2 cup of applesauce to make the bread more moist.

Happy baking!
