What a funny story hahahhahah
classic french toast recipe
This recipe is an easy french toast recipe that is quick. Make this french toast recipe for 1 or 2 or even for the whole family.
When I was a chef in 5-star hotels and running breakfast shifts. French toast was a must-have dish for breakfast. Different hotels made french toast differently and different types of bread were used and it is a very versatile dish. There is always cinnamon added into the mixture to give that oomph of flavour which also makes it a cinnamon french toast recipe. But if you want the cinnamon to be more prominent then increase the cinnamon and dust it with cinnamon sugar on the top when serving YUMMMM. Oh my god, I am salivating now.
french toast ingredients
Bread: I am using white brioche bread, but you can use any type of bread I have given a list of bread that can be used further down the article.
Cinnamon: This will give extra flavour and oomph, you can also add any type of flavouring such as orange, almond extract anything you wish
Vanilla: Vanilla flavour is always a good contributor to flavour
Milk: Fresh milk
Sugar: You can increase or decrease sugar as you like. Since I serve it with maple syrup and dust with icing sugar I have ket the sugar level to the minimum
Eggs: It is important to use egg in this recipe, this is what makes the whole mixture a batter that gives a nice coasting
