Have you ever wanted to be a child again? You have, I am sure. Well, since a time machine has not been invented yet, how about going back to our sweet childhood time through food? Surely there must be some dishes that will always make you travel back in time. This eggy bread is one of them for me.

I have not had it since I was a child, and a few days ago I suddenly remembered my mum making it for me before school. That was a real treat. Sweets were scarce that time, with Romania being a communist country, one had to make the most of the ingredients found in the kitchen.

Creativity was definitely an asset you had to possess. This eggy bread, although served for breakfast, was a kind of dessert as well because of the sweet taste. Oh, those old days.

I was surprised to know that eggy bread is quite popular in the UK as well. But then, who wouldn’t like it! You can just top it with powdered sugar, or take it to a whole new level and top it with your favourite fruit and nuts. I have used banana and strawberries and drizzled a bit of honey over, but maple syrup or any other syrup would be amazing too.

The eggy bread is a great alternative to pancakes and is ready in just a few minutes. Kids would forever love you if you make these for breakfast, they are a great favourite with the little tummies. And big tummy too. Not quite with my daughter, but then she is a fussy pants anyway, so there is no surprise here.

    I haven’t had this for years! Seeing it now I’m wondering why I’ve never though to try it out on my young children. I will do soon.
