Wake up for a delicious weekend breakfast that’s super easy and quick! French toasts with a soft center and crispy golden brown edges beg for a drizzle of maple syrup.
Most of us usually like to keep breakfast simple most days of the week; I try to have yogurt, muffins, or oatmeal ready in my fridge or freezer. However, on weekends, we enjoy a great family breakfast. And, of course, one of my all-time favorite breakfasts is French toast!
French toast is a delicious breakfast or brunch option. It might be classic and simple or opulent and seasonal. It’s quick and easy to prepare, and it tastes insanely amazing.
Crispy brown edges with a soft center topped with powdered sugar dusting, fruits, butter, or a syrup drizzle. To be honest, the mere thought of that makes me hungry.
What Is French Toast?
French toast is a breakfast dish made of bread slices that have been dipped in eggs and milk mixture, then fried. It is one of the oldest methods of reviving old dry bread.
Interestingly, it is not originated from France. It was tried in the first century by the Roman Empire. French toast is now a popular breakfast delicacy all over the world, with countless varieties.
How To Make French Toast?
Every variety of French toast requires a few key ingredients, and without it, the recipe would be incomplete. So make sure you’ll have the following ingredients in your pantry:
- 5-6 thick slices of Bread
- 2 Eggs
- 1 tbsp. sugar
- ½ cup Milk
- 1 tsp. Flavorings (Add some cinnamon powder, vanilla extract, or nutmeg to your French toast for an extra special treat).
- 1 pinch salt (optional)
- Butter, for frying
- Whisk the egg, milk, sugar, salt, and desired flavoring ingredients in a mixing bowl.
- In a nonstick or cast-iron frying pan over medium-low flame, heat 1 tbsp. butter until foamy.
- Take a slice of bread and dip both sides into the egg mixture. Then, carefully rear the slice out of the mixture and place it in the frying pan.
- Cook until golden on both sides. Repeat the process with the remaining slices.
- Serve hot, dusted with icing sugar, drizzled with maple syrup, or garnished with fresh fruit (or whatever you like)
- Bread is the base of your french toast, so use good-quality bread. It’s better to go with challah, brioche, or soft white bread.
- You can use oil in place of butter. However, cooking in butter improves the flavor.
- You may substitute cream or half-and-half for the milk.
- You can also replace sugar with your favorite sweeteners like honey, maple syrup, or you can even skip it.
