French Toast, also known as “Eggy Bread” is a classic breakfast or brunch dish. It is made with slices of bread dipped in a Milk and Egg mixture, then browned in a hot skillet. It can be enjoyed with Maple Syrup, Fresh Berries, Jam, Whipped Cream or Scrambled eggs.
This is a very quick recipe as I didn’t intend to make a blog recipe out of it but changed my mind at the last minute.
The quality of Bread you use for French Toasts will pretty much determine the amount of Eggs used. Some bread types are dense and will soak up quite a lot of Egg. For best results, try using Challah or Brioche bread.
6 Slices Bread
1/4 Cup Milk
1 Tablespoon Sugar
1/4 Teaspoon Cinnamon Powder
1/2 Teaspoon Vanilla Extract
1/4 Teaspoon Salt
Break Eggs into a wide bowl, add the Salt, Cinnamon powder, Sugar, Milk, Vanilla Extract…
Dip the bread into the egg mix, make sure both sides are covered with the mixture. Do not soak the bread or you’ll end up with soggy toast.
Place a skillet/Frying pan on medium heat, when it heats up, add some Butter. When it’s melted, throw in the soaked bread and fry on both sides. Frying should take approximately 2 minutes on both sides…
Note: You really should use just enough butter to coat the pan. Do not use an excessive amount or you’ll end up with soggy french toast. I could afford to use excess as my pan is really wide and the butter didn’t settle in the middle of the pan. Start with a little amount of Butter and add more as you go.
Your French Toast is ready. Serve with Maple or Chocolate Syrup, Fried Eggs, Whipped Cream or just eat on its own…
