Hello my fellow travellers,
There is nothing better than waking up in the morning to the smell of coffee and warm french toast.
This recipe is versatile and if you wake up early enough for suhoor, you can whip a batch for your family members. Just make sure you also serve up some more protein like scrambled eggs for the long day of fasting.
So I’ve always wondered what kind of bread suits french toast best. Most chefs recommend day old bread so it can soak the batter effectively. I’ve tried french baguettes, plain white toast, and also whole wheat. For me the best bread that works out is challah bread. Its soft and moist and the french toast tastes so fluffy and one slice is filling enough (if you cut the slice thick enough). I like Whole Foods fresh uncut loaf.
1/2 cup milk + a little more (I eyeballed it but enough milk for the batter to have a good milk to egg ratio)
2-3 tablespoons sugar (more if you want a sweet batter)
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp vanilla
2 tbsp butter
4 slices challah bread
1. Whisk eggs together with milk. Add sugar and cinnamon.
2. Heat griddle and melt butter. Soak bread slices on each side for a good few seconds (make sure you get it in all the nooks and craannies)
3. Cook on each side for a few minutes until the batter is cooked through.
4. Serve with either fruit, whip cream, or maple syrup.
See how easy that was?
