How to Make French Toast
Makes 4 servings
- 8 slices thick white bread, Brioche bread or Challah bread
- 2 cups milk
- 5 eggs
- 2 Tbsp. sugar
- 2 Tbsp. vanilla extract
- 2 tsp. cinnamon
- 1 stick butter
- As needed powdered sugar
- As needed syrup
Combine milk, eggs, vanilla, sugar and cinnamon. Mix until well blended. Add butter to moderately hot skillet, enough to coat the skillet. Do not brown the butter.
Dip bread slices into the egg-milk batter, ensuring the batter coats the bread without completely soaking the bread. Remove the bread from mix and shake off excess batter. Place into skillet and cook for 2 minutes on each side. Be sure not to overload the skillet with bread.
Once all bread is pan fried, portion onto a platter 2 slices per serving. Sprinkle with powdered sugar and top with a thin slice of butter. Serve French toast with warm syrup (optional).
