Eggy Toast on wet Monday

Such a nice cold Monday morning.. It's a substitute holiday only for the school kids, whereas its a working day for the adult. The best part being a SAHM is everyday is a holiday for us.. That great, isn't it.. Well, after reading a post from 1 of my FB friend about buttermilk, something just hit me. Since I have half loaf of wholemeal that expiring today, why don't I do something to it using buttermilk.. Here is my another own creation, simple but fulfilling. Thumbs up from my daughter. Hope you will enjoy it too.. Before that a little info about butter milk that was shared by my friend, Salwar Omar from Facebook.

Buttermilk, traditionally was the liquid left from the process of churing cream to make butter. It has a sourish taste and high acidity level. It contains, high amount of water and a small percentage of protein and butterfat.

It is this butterfat that gives rich and moistness to baked goods. When a recipe calls for buttermilk, bicarbonate soda is necessary to help neutralize the acidity in buttermilk.

The buttermilk we bought at supermarket nowadays are known commercial buttermilk. It means wathat it is milk which has been cultured with lactic acid.

A search on lists lactic acid as a halal ingredients.

To subtitute buttermilk, add 1 tbsp of fresh lemon juice to 250ml milk. But, the flavor is nowhere near the rich and full flavor of buttermilk.

Eggy Buttermilk Wholemeal Toast

2 - 3 eggs 
1/4 cup of buttermilk
1 - 2 tbsp maple syrup (depends on ur sweetness)
Dash of cinnamon / nugmeg powder
Wholemeal bread ( u can use ur own preference of bread )

- mix all the above ingredients except for butter..
- heat up the pan with little butter n oil. (oil to prevent butter frm burning)
- dip the bread into the egg n fry it on the pan.
- make sure both sides r crispy n golden
- serve it hot. U can top it up with extra maple syrup n some fruits like berries, banana.,

Note : 

if using happy call pan, can omit the oil, just use little butter.

I didn't use salt as the butter is already salty unless if u use unsalted butter. But do keep them at a minimum.

Happy trying : )

- yours truly -
