The recipe for French toast is quite simple so long as you follow it step by step, starting with your choice of topping. Here’s how to make it! 

Step 01

French Toast_Step one

Break the eggs into a bowl.  Add a pinch of salt and beat the eggs thoroughly. As you continue to beat the eggs with a fork, gradually add the milk. Finally, add the cinnamon.  

 

 

Step 02

French Toast_Step two

Slice the bread into slices approximately 2 cm thick and dip them quickly into the egg and milk mixture.  

 

 

Step 03

French Toast_Step 3

Melt a knob of butter in a frying pan and fry two slices of bread at a time. After 2 minutes, turn the slices over and fry the other side for the same amount of time.  

 

 

Step 04

French Toast_Step 4

Place the fried bread on a serving dish. Add a small knob of butter, maple syrup and red berry fruits.

To taste, dust with cinnamon or icing sugar.  

 

Useful tips and interesting facts

Perfect French toast should be slightly crisp on the outer surface and very soft on the inside. For this reason, it should never be overcooked.

For an even more wicked version of French toast, try using cooking cream instead of milk.  

 

Recipe Twists

If you have a sweet-tooth, try using a brioche loaf instead of a white loaf of bread. Or, opt for a decidedly savoury flavour by eliminating the cinnamon from the egg and milk mixture and topping your French toast with butter, salmon and a soft spreadable cheese.
