Breakfast: The most important (and mouthwatering) meal of the day!
You Will Need
- A large, shallow dish
- 1.0 large egg, beaten
- 2.0 tbsp melted unsalted butter
- 0.75 c milk
- 2.0 tsp vanilla extract
- 2.0 tbsp sugar
- 0.333333 c unbleached all-purpose flour
- 0.25 tsp salt
- 5 thick slices of challah bread, or sandwich bread
- A large skillet and a spatula
- Extra unsalted butter
- A wire baking rack
- A rimmed cookie sheet
- 2.0 tsp your favorite liqueur
- Powdered sugar
- Maple syrup
Mix the wet ingredients
In a shallow dish, whisk together the liquid ingredients until they're thoroughly blended.
Add the dry ingredients
Add the dry ingredients to the wet ones, and whisk them together until they're fully incorporated.
Preheat your skillet and oven
Preheat your skillet at a moderate temperature for several minutes, and preheat your oven to 200 degrees.
Dip the bread
Dip a piece of bread in the egg mixture for about 30 seconds per side. Placed the soaked bread on a separate plate, and repeat with the other slices.
Melt a tablespoon of butter in your skillet, and place the bread in the pan in a single layer. Cook on each side until the bread is golden brown.
Warm the toast
If you're serving a crowd, you'll want to keep your already-cooked French toast warm while your new batch is cooking. Set a wire baking rack on top of a rimmed cookie sheet in the oven, and place the cooked slices of toast on top of the rack. They'll stay warm without getting soggy.
Top your French toast with a dusting of powdered sugar, a pour of syrup, or a spoonful of your favorite jam, and enjoy!
