Step 1: Gather your ingredients
*Bread - I think that challah bread works the best, but you can also use french bread or even regular bread. If you are using regular pre-sliced bread you will need two peices per peice of french toast. If you are using french or challah bread you will need it sliced thick.
*eggs - one egg for every two peices of toast
*milk or cream - just a splash
*vanilla extract or almond extract - just a teaspoon for added flavor
*butter - to coat your cooking surface
*syrup - to serve it with
*seedless raspberry preserves or jam
*fresh raspberries (optional - it tastes better with fresh ones, but you can leave them out to save money or if they aren't in season)
Or the stuffing of your choice!
Step 2: Prepare your bread
If you are using regular bread, you need to spread a thin layer of cream cheese on each side. The cream cheese is part of the flavor of the stuffing, but it also helps to bind the two slices of bread together
