I have no idea how to describe this dessert, nor do I know the English name for it. The French name is "Pain Perdu", which, if I recall my high-school French correctly, translates as "Lost bread".
However, the Dutch name, "Wentelteefje", means "Little flipbitch". Don't ask...
I used to eat this a lot when I was a child. I loved it. Now that I have fully functional teeth it is a bit too mushy to my taste.
5 dl whole milk.
100 g. pasteurized eggs.
100 g. butter.
8 slices of bread. (is "casinobread" a word?)
100 g. cinnamon sugar.
- Put the milk and the egg(s) in a bowl.
- Put the butter in a saute pan.
- Place the pan on the fire.
- Heat the butter.
- Pull the slices of bread through the milk-mixture and let them leak out.
- Put the bread in the pan, and bake one side till it's goldbrown(-ish).
- Flip ("wentel") the bread and bake the other side.
- Sprinkle with cinnamon sugar and serve directly.
If this makes (no) sense, please let me know. This was the first time I translated a recipe, and it wasn't easy. Source o' recipe: SVH.
