Eric made us French toast for breakfast and I remembered that I've never got a chance to share my version of this breakfast classic.

I like my French toast soft (but not too mushy) inside and crispy outside.   To get this effect I do not mix milk and eggs together.  This adds extra time to the whole process (and leaves one extra dirty bowl to clean) but I believe it totally worth it!

What you need

6 pieces of slightly stale bread
2 eggs
2 cups milk
2 tbsp sugar
dash of cinnamon
splash of vanilla
butter or oil for frying

What to do

  • If your bread is fresh, dry it for 10 minutes in the oven or toast it. 
  • In the first bowl combine together milk, cinnamon, vanilla, and sugar. Stir well. 
  • In the second bowl beat eggs lightly. 
  • Dip a slice of bread in the milk mixture. The longer you dip the bread the softer your French toast will be. 
  • Dip it in the egg and fry for 5 minutes each side (or until golden brown).  The trick is to keep the heat low so that the bread gets a chance to cook before burning.

Serve with your favorite toppings: maple syrup, fruit compote, jam, honey, or simply sprinkled with icing sugar.

    1. It's really simple and if you want you can mix milk and eggs together (that's how Eric makes them).
