Irish Cream Black Tea French Toast
For this one, replace the milk you’d normally add with Irish Cream and black tea, add vanilla and cinnamon, and voila!
I got the recipe idea from Spa Bettie (who actually uses silken tofu instead of eggs to make her French toast vegan – although I’m pretty sure Irish Cream has cream in it, so…). She uses Bailey’s in her recipe. We used Brady’s in ours because it was way cheaper, but then I found this review where, if you check out comment #2, it actually sounds like we made the superior choice! Good for us.
– Make sure to use enough Brady’s – being the boozer I am, in my GF batch you could really taste it, but in my friends’ it was a little too subtle.
– Figure out some way to make the black tea taste stronger: I’m always nervous to let black tea steep for too long because I don’t want it to get bitter, but as it was the flavor wasn’t strong enough. Maybe make it ahead and let it evaporate for a while? Any other thoughts?
– We served it with homemade blueberry-cranberry syrup, and crushed raw pecans. Yum!
