Original French Toast: the Easy Way
Who can resist waking up to the enticing smell of French toast? Don’t be confused by the name because the original recipe hails from the US, where no brunch worthy of the name would be complete without French toast.
Type of dish
Season & Occasion
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!
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.
Slice the bread into slices approximately 2 cm thick and dip them quickly into the egg and milk mixture.
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.
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.
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.
