June 4th, 2020

French toast is a breakfast staple that isn’t as fancy as it sounds. In fact, it’s one of the first recipes you can teach kids when they start showing eagerness to help out and try their hand at cooking. The same goes for grown-ups who haven’t really gotten around to making their way around the kitchen and experimenting with recipes.

Simple and delicious, you’ll have French toast ready in no time flat.

You need only a few ingredients to whip up this tasty treat and the best part is, it won’t take up a lot of your time.

Here’s what you’ll need:

  • 6 sliced Texas toast or thick cut bread
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/4 cup milk or cream
  • 1 tsp sugar
  • 1/4 tsp cinnamon
  • pinch of salt
  • splash of vanilla extract
  • butter and vegetable oil for cooking

To make the batter, first crack two large eggs in a pie plate. Crouton Crackerjacks explains that using a pie plate for the batter is ideal as it makes dipping the bread easier.

Whisk all the ingredients together with a fork, making sure the eggs have completely broken apart.

You can use regular sandwich bread, or even Brioche or French bread, but Texas toast is ideal as the slices are cut thicker.

After preparing the batter and bread slices, heat up a pan over medium to medium high heat. Pour vegetable oil and add some butter.

The butter not only adds flavor to the French toast but creates a non-stick surface, too.

Make sure the butter and oil are hot.

This will keep your French toast from sticking to the pan.

When both oil and butter are golden, you can now start cooking the French toast. Mix the batter again, dunk a slice of bread into the mixture and soak both sides, and add to the pan.

You don’t have to keep moving the bread around just to check if the bottom is ready. Simply leave it to cook. When the bubbles simmering around the bread are smaller, flip it over and cook the other side for about a minute or two.

Your bread should be a nice, golden brown.

Add butter to the pan again and repeat the steps until you’ve cooked all slices.

Typically, two large eggs can coat about six pieces of bread. In this tutorial, the bread slices aren’t left to soak up the batter but it’s entirely up to you. Of course, you’ll need to do a bit of adjusting with the measurements if you prefer to let the bread soak before cooking it.
