Introduction: Basic French Toast

French toast is delicious right?

RIGHT?

So lets make some buddy!

Step 1: Gather Ingredients and Supplies

Ingredients:

  • Eggs
  • Milk
  • Vanilla extract
  • Cinnamon
  • Sugar

Supplies:

  • Pie plate
  • Heavy pan
  • Flipper
  • Pan spray

Step 2: Mix the Batter

Measurements are for Suckers

This is kind of a by feel recipe. In this situation we we used three large eggs and half a cup of milk. This is the approximate ratio.

Add in your seasonings. Here we used a teaspoon of vanilla, a teaspoon of cinnamon, and and a tablespoon of sugar. If you mix the cinnamon and sugar together beforehand they will mix into the liquids better.

Whisk the mixture with a fork.

Step 3: Set Up Your Station and Cook

Set Up the Station

I like to set everything up so it rolls along faster. It avoids walking around with wet bread.

Dip your slices of bread into the liquid mixture, then flip it. Pick the slice up and let the excess drip off.

Put the wet slice into a hot pan on medium heat, around 350F. A good way to test the heat of your pan is to drip a drop of water into the pan. If it sizzles your pan is hot enough. If it does not sizzle continue to heat your pan until it does.

When your toast is browned and there is no raw egg visible flip the toast and cook the other side until the toast is cooked through. If you are worried about raw eggs break open a cooked toast to ensure it is cooked through.

Step 4: Dress As You Wish

This particular toast is dressed with pears, walnuts, and maple syrup.

You put what you like on your toast, because it's your french toast.

Enjoy!

    look so delicious <3

    cinnamon? Vanilla? Noooo, chilli? Yay! But seriously, it's interesting how something so simple is different around the world. It had never occurred to me to make them sweet like a pancake. (and also seriously, I do add chilli to mine!)
