Let me paint you a picture. You wake up to a beautiful sunrise. Birds are singing and music is playing. You feel refreshed and well-rested. What could possibly make this day any better? There's only one answer: French toast.
It may seem like a tricky recipe to master, but once you know these tips and tricks, you'll be making this delicious treat all the time!
Step 1: Sugar, Spice, Everything Nice
You'll want to start by making the egg-y custard that your toast will be fried in. Let's get cracking!
You should use 2 eggs for 6 slices of bread, but it depends on how long you dip the slices for. When mixing together the milk and eggs, add a variety of spices like cinnamon, nutmeg, or even ginger! Of course, plenty of sugar as well.
Step 2: Be The Breadwinner
Since the recipe is based around bread, make sure you're using the best, freshest loaf you can find!
Go against the grain and try some challah bread. It's a traditional Jewish recipe that is egg based, so you get a really fluffy and creamy french toast from it!
Now let's get to frying, home-skillet!
Step 3: Going Off The Griddle
There are many ways to fry your French toast, and no shortage of theories on how long you should cook it for.
Some people recommend using a griddle or skillet to get those tasty looking grill marks, or try using out that cast iron pan to add a sumptuous dash of flavor! But even if you're using a regular frying pan, the most important thing is to watch it as it toasts!
Because everyone's oven is different and we all like our french toast in our own unique ways, it is really down to you! Personally, I like it golden brown while still being really soggy!
Add your fixings of syrup, butter, whipped cream, or bacon and enjoy your perfect French toast!
