I LOVE french toast. Its sweet and very carb-ilicious. What's not to love? I usually only get it on occasion when I'm brunching, BUT I had a day old baguette and a ton of eggs. It was a no-brainer! I just found this simple recipe on All Recipes. It claimed to be fab and fluffy because of the added flour. I could not disagree. If you have any ground nutmeg, toss that in as well. Very tasty topped with cinnamon sugar and strawberries. Oh yeah- warm maple syrup will do you in. If you add mini chocolate chips, forget about your after lunch plans. You will need a nap for sure!
French Bread French Toast for Two
Adapted From All Recipes
- 1/2 day old french baguette (leave out overnight to get more stale- it will absorb better)
- 1/4 cup milk
- 1/4 cup cream
- 2 eggs, slightly beaten
- 1/2 tsp cinnamon
- pinch of salt
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 1/2 TBSP white sugar
- 1/8 cup all purpose flour
- cinnamon sugar, strawberries, chocolate chips, maple syrup for topping
Place flour in a medium mixing bowl. Whisk in milk and cream. Add remaining ingredients, whisking until smooth.
Slice bread diagonally into slices about 1 inch thick.
Heat lightly oiled griddle/pan over medium heat. Soak bread slices in egg mixture for about 30 seconds on each side- just long enough to make sure its coated, but not soggy.
Use a fork to drain excess mixture from bread and place in pan until golden brown- about 3-4 minutes on each side. Top with your favorite things and enjoy!
Enjoy your weekend!
P.S. Yep, I'm still soaking in the rays in sunny California! :) I will be back in Texas tomorrow and back to the million degree heat and humidity....
