Fluffy French toast, As the weather grows colder, I crave hearty breakfast foods. That’s when I turn to one of my favorite comfort classics: French toast! This version is made with a simple batter that includes whole eggs and flour for fluffiness, then it’s finished with cinnamon sugar. It makes a perfect weekend breakfast or brunch dish. And since it only takes about 20 minutes to make, you can enjoy this sweet treat any day of the week.
French toast is a breakfast food made from bread dipped in beaten eggs and milk, then briefly fried or baked. Slices of bread are usually dipped in the mixture one at a time and then fried in a pan on both sides until golden brown.
It was created by Benedictine monks as an alternative meal when meat was not allowed. Fluffy French toast can be eaten with toppings such as butter, syrup, fruit, whipped cream, or jam. Oh, try this Cranberry Orange Bread.
HOW TO MAKE FLUFFY FRENCH TOAST
Bread: You may select any bread you desire. Make sure you have thick slices (34″-1″) and allow the bread to stale. You want stale bread because it absorbs the custard without becoming gloppy. If you don’t have time to let your bread dry out, bake it for 8-10 minutes at 350 degrees F.
Egg Mixture: Flour should be measured in a big mixing bowl. Whisk in the milk gradually. Then, whisk in the salt, eggs, cinnamon, vanilla, and sugar until smooth.
Heat: Use a griddle or frying pan and heat to medium heat.
Soak: Soak the slices in the mixture one at a time, until saturated. Whisk the mixture between each slice of bread.
Cook and Serve: Cook the bread until each side is golden brown. Serve Hot.
- Be sure to let the toast sit in the custard long enough for the mixture to absorb the entire slice of bread.
- Watch the temp: Too hot will burn the outside before the inside can cook. Too low and the entire toast is too soft and chewy. You want a crisp outside with a custard-like inside.
- Mix the egg batter thoroughly. Make sure the egg whites are fully incorporated or you’ll see a nicely browned toast with a bright soggy egg white spot.
