Childhood Breakfast Reinvented - Baguette Fritters with a pinch of Cardamom and Cinnamon

When I need a quick snack I would rather make something that I know well from childhood, than to think of something new and more healthy.
So just adding a little bit of glamour to these baguette slice fritters with some powdered cardamom and cinnamon in the batter. And serve with tea and the remains of the tea-infused ganache which I used for the Earl Grey chocolates the other day.

Are childhood foods really more unhealthy than the current snacks and breakfast options? What do you think?

Когато трябва да се направи някаква закуска набързо първо се сещам за добре познати рецепти от детството ми, от колкото да измисля някаква съвременна по-здравословна опция.
Към панировката за обикновените пържени филии (използвам франзели нарязани на колелца 1.5 см дебелина), прибавям една щипка смлян кардамон и една щипка канела. Пържа в олио до златисто.
За разкош сервирам с ганаш инфюзнат с чай Ърл Грей.

Наистина ли храните, с които сме свикнали от детството си, са по-нездравословни от сегашните варианти за закуска, какво мислите?

Thank you!
I now see I didn't post the exact recipe but it's 2 eggs with cardamom and cinnamon. Turn the baguette slices in the eggs and fry. But the baguette needs to be 2-3 days old. I am not sure how a fresh baguette will do...
Good luck!
