French Toast Hong Kong-style (港式 西多士)
I would always order french toast when I visit a Hong Kong cafe. I love the fluffiness of the bread that has been fried with egg sandwiched with thick layer of peanut butter and drizzled with condensed milk. In my version however, I like to add some mozzarella cheese as I like the combination of peanut butter and cheese. But you would usually get Peanut Butter or Kaya spread in Hong Kong Cafes. I also used maple syrup but you can use condensed milk or golden syrup. If you want to make those really thick layer of Hong Kong french toast that you had in their cafe, double the recipe! ( I don’t eat that much.)
