What You Need To Make This French Toast Recipe?
Eggs: Make sure your eggs are, at room temperature so they blend well with the milk and other ingredients.
Milk: Feel free to use any type of milk you prefer whether it’s dairy milk or a nondairy alternative depending on your preferences.
Sugar: Adding sugar is optional. You can adjust the amount according to how sweet you want your French toast to be.
Ground Cinnamon: If you enjoy a comforting flavor adding cinnamon is a great idea. However, if you prefer plain toast feel free to leave it out.
Vanilla Essence: While vanilla essence enhances the flavor profile it’s not necessary if you don’t have any or simply prefer not to use it.
Bread: Select your bread for making toast. Whether it’s sliced grain or even a special artisan bread, for a unique twist choose what appeals to your taste buds.
Butter: Butter adds richness. Helps prevent sticking when frying. However, if you follow a dairy diet or prefer an alternative option feel free to use a non-dairy substitute instead.
Steps To Make French Toast:
Step 1: Crack three eggs into a bowl. Add a cup of milk. If you desire a burst of flavor sprinkle in some sugar, a pinch of cinnamon and a drop of vanilla extract. Now whisk it all together until it forms a creamy mixture.
Step 2: Get your frying pan, place it on the stove and let it heat up over medium heat. Add a bit of butter. Ahh, that satisfying sizzle!
Step 3: Take a slice of bread. Dip it, into the mixture. Allow it to soak for 30 seconds then flip it over and repeat on the other side. Your bread should be fully immersed in those eggs getting nice and cozy.
Step 4: Now gently place your bread onto the pan. Let it cook for 5 minutes, on each side. Remember to check in between – we want perfection, not burnt!
Step 5: To ensure doneness press the center of your toast lightly with your finger. If it springs back like a puppy greeting you then voila! It’s ready. Your French toast should have a crispy exterior while staying tender inside.
Step 6: Continue this process with your remaining slices of bread because each one deserves its moment to shine.
Step 7: Once you have a plate of golden treasures generously pour some maple syrup, over them. It’s like experiencing a harmonious sweetness dancing on your taste buds.
Step 8: Indulge, in this comforting toast – a morning delight that brings magic to your breakfast!
