French toast recipe step by step
One of the benefits of making French toast is that you can use day-old bread, and it is a low-cost breakfast.
To make this classic French toast, we will need:
- 2 eggs
- 3 tablespoons of sugar
- 1 teaspoon of vanilla flavoring
- 6 slices of bread
- 8.5 oz of milk
- You can add syrup, cream, ice cream, fruit or even chocolate.
Homemade French toast step by step
Mix the milk, vanilla, eggs and sugar in a bowl. Begin to beat the mixture until it is completely homogeneous.
Put the slices of bread into the mixture; it is important that the bread is not too wet so that it does not break when cooking.
Repeat the process until all 6 slices are wet with the mixture.
Place a tablespoon of butter in a hot frying pan, when it has melted put the slice of bread and start frying.
When one side of the bread slice is golden brown, turn it over.
After both sides of the bread are ready, we put them on absorbent paper to remove the excess butter and repeat the process with all the slices.
Serve immediately so that the toast retains its initial texture; add the topping of your choice.
Always remember to use quality ingredients so that the flavor of the toast is incredible.
The French use sweet bread called Brioche to prepare the toast.
You can serve it with strawberries or blueberries to make it a totally nutritious dish for breakfast.
If you are going to cook French toast for an afternoon snack, it is better to save the bread and eat it while you are cooking so that it does not lose its texture.
And that’s it, a simple and delicious recipe perfect to start the day. Remember to choose the best side dish for your French toast.
