Hi my dear bakers! I hope you are doing great after the holidays!
This is such an everyday recipe, and that is what life is about right? everyday simple baking! I personally, have always loved french toast more than pancakes. Are you a pancake or a french toast person?
Anyway, this is a a super fast and simple recipe, ideal for bread that is becoming stale! and just so you know...I have worked in restaurants....french toast, is always OLD BREAD.
That said, it doesn't mean its bad, completely the opposite, as old bread is drier, it gets to absorb the milk and eggs way better, getting an amazing texture!
So lets start, as this shouldn't take you more than 10 minutes.
Instruments to be used:
1. Griddle or skillet
3. Optional: sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, vainilla.
The ratio that I always use is: 2 eggs per 1 cup of whole milk, which yields 4-6 slices of bread depending how much custard you let them soak.
1. Prepare the custard and cut the bread slices as thick as you like them.
2. Whisk together, milk, eggs, and any of the optional ingredients (you can get as creative as you like).
3. Put a little but of butter on the skillet, let it melt, to prevent the breads from sticking.
4. Start soaking the breads in the custard, and then flip them, so they soak on both sides.
5. Once the butter on the skillet is melted (you can also let it burn a little) put the bread already soaked and leave until browned. Flip them and wait they brown on the other side too.
I hope you enjoy the recipe with your loved ones, and remember to log in to make comments below!
