6 sliced good quality, and fresh bread, 2 large eggs, 1/4 cup fresh milk or cream, 1 tsp sugar, 1/4 tsp cinnamon a pinch of salt and a splash of vanilla. You will also need butter and cooking oil therefore, extract butter and vegetable oil for making French toast.
The procedure of making French toast:
In this article we are going to discuss how to make a delicious French toast at home. Make sure before starting the procedure, you have all the ingredients. French toast is one of those things that need not to be complicated and does not need any fancy ingredients. You know it is better sometimes just to keep things as simple as possible, and French toast is one of those things. So without going to further ado, let us get this recipe started.
First of all, you will need a batter for your bread, so what a pie plate here you are just going to crack two large eggs. Crack it carefully and do not get shells in your egg, in case you do not like crunchy bits in your French toast. Just break two eggs in a pie plate and using a fork, break the yolk a little bit and before you add the rest of the ingredients. The reason of using a pie plate is, when you are going to coat your bread it is just easier shallow bowl. to do it in a wide. In that egg plate, add a quarter cup of milk or you can use cream as well, or half-and-half if you are feeling it decadent. Then you are going to add 1 table spoon of granulated sugar, as well as 8th of a tea spoon or 4th of a tea spoon of cinnamon. You will need just a pinch of a salt may be 8th of a table spoon or so, and just a quick splash of vanilla, try to use real vanilla.
Now you have all your ingredients in a plate, use a fork to whisk these ingredients together, just to make sure that all of the eggs are completely smooth. The milk kind of helps in breaking up eggs, and you need not to use any globules of egg on your French toast, instead you need smooth batters. Let us talk about bread for a minute, a thick and dry and crummy bread is recommended and will be better for this purpose. So try to have thick bread, however, you can also use other breads of your choice.
You can also use brioche if you want to or French bread you know whatever kind of bread that you like. Get a frying pan over a medium-high heat flam or between medium and medium high. Now add in a tablespoon of vegetable oil as well as just a little pat of butter, now the reason of using butter and vegetable oil is because it gives a flavor of frying and butter as well. Butter also has a natural non-stick property to it, but the vegetable oil raises the burning point of the butter.
The butter does not burn in this way, because you definitely do not want burned butter on your French toast, well maybe you like it but most of the people do not. Now make sure that the butter and oil are hot before you add in your first peace of French toast. Otherwise your French toast is going to stick and of course you do not want this to happen to you. how do you come to know that your oil and butter mixture is ready, when the milk solids in the butter start to brown? You can see little brown particles in your frying pan.
If it is so, then this is the exact time that your pan is ready for your French toast. What are you going to do is, just mix up your batter mixture so the cinnamon is not stuck to the bottom. Now there comes two different ways when it comes to the dipping stage.
- You can coat your bread in the plate of batter quickly, just coating the top and do not soak it.
- Other way is soak the bread a little bit and so the batter can be absorbed a little bit and get the inside of your bread soaked with batter.
In the first case, your toast will give more taste of bread than the later one, which gives you a soft and juicy French toast. Now decide on yourself which French toast you want, and make it accordingly.
Now put the coated toast in your pan so you can fry it. Flip it over when it is ready from one side and keep checking it. When it is cooked from both sides bring it out of the pan and add the second one. Keep checking oil and butter in the pan so your French toast does not stick to your pan. Do not be tempted to move your bread around and just let the pan do its work, and let the heat do its work. So go ahead and take a peek, and make sure that it is nice and golden Brown.
Just a little bit of butter and vegetable oil to your pan between each slice and continue frying up the rest of your French toast. In this article we have eggs and other ingredients for testing purpose, you can take ingredients according to the number of toast you are making. In this mixture, two eggs will do for me personally, six pieces of tick toast. Just keep ahead and keep French toasting all of your bread pieces. Now take all of your French toasts off to a plate and add some delicious maple syrup or honey right over the top.
If you are feeling extra decadent, dust the top with little bit sugar powder or coconut powder. You can serve these toast with eggs and bacon on the side, or if you like, a little bit of Fresh juice will be delicious. Nut if you are having it for yourself not for someone special on a valentine’s day, then as I said above it is good to keep things simple and easy.

What would you need for this?
Two eggs with half cup of milk or cream in it, now add one tablespoon salt and one tablespoon black pepper in it. Whisk it and make sure you make a smooth batter. Smooth batter is good for French toasts as it is coasted nicely on your bread. Now take two slices of bread and put two slices of ham on one slice. Take two slices of Gruyere cheese and stack it above the ham slices.
Now take a frying pan, non-sticky will be better, and bring it to flame, put some butter in it, not too much, just a little bit of butter and make sure that your butter is properly hot before you put your toast in it. Now it is very easy, coat your bread in batter and flip it over to get coated on the other side too. Soak it for 5 minutes, if you want soft and juicy toast. Put your toast inside the pan and wait for a while and do not flip the toast until it is not cooked from one side, as it can break your bread into pieces and your toast is roasted 😊.
Flip it over so you can cook it on the other side as well. Cook it on the other side for a while and when you are done with it, take it off to a plate and put some flavor if you want.
