I was always under the impression that French toast had to be made with eggs just like I always assumed bread pudding also could only be made with eggs.
I think the custard base in both of these recipes is what throws every vegan off, but have no fear when Bobby is around.
I like to search and search and search and also sometimes experiment around with recipes that contain eggs to see if I substitute what will happen.
I forgot I had this recipe because I came across another French toast recipe, but that one was more on the savoury side, where this one is more on the sweet side. In this case you can drown these slices in maple syrup and not feel guilty.
This recipe is perfect when you run out of ideas for breakfast or a sweet treat especially when you are fasting and all you can think about is cake, cake and more cake Trust me, I speak from experience.
