Spiced French Toast

Despite its name, this dish is not restricted to French cuisine. It is delicious and you can make it in no time. Just soak the bread slices in milk and whisked eggs and deep-fry them. However, let’s upgrade the classic recipe by spicing the milk first with lemon zest, cinnamon, and star anise. Enjoy it with some powdered sugar.
