For this recipe we are going to need:

  • 2 slices of bread
  • 2 eggs
  • about a cup of milk
  • half a teaspoon of ground nutmeg 
  • 2 teaspoons of ground cinnamon 
  • a tablespoon of butter
  • a bunch of raspberries
  • and some maple syrup.

Preparing the egg mixture

First, we are going to prepare the egg mixture that we are going to dip the breads in. Crack both of the eggs and start stirring them with a fork. Furthermore, make sure to use a bowl that is big enough to fit the bread in. If the bowl is not big enough, the slices of bread will not be soaked properly.

Adding the Milk

And now it’s time to add the milk. As I mentioned it before, we can always adjust the ingredients for this recipe. In addition, if you want your French toast to be more on the egg side make sure to add less milk. In my scenario, I’m going to be adding about a cup of milk.

The Secret

Mix it really well and now it’s time to add the nutmeg and the cinnamon. After our mixture is ready, we are going to dip the slices of bread in it. Now, the secret to the best French toast is to use stale bread and let the bread soak in for at least 5 minutes. In my scenario, I am using a sourdough bread which is pretty stale but if you’re using a brioche bread or some sort of bread that is very soft, make sure not to soak it for that long because it will make the bread very saggy.

Cooking the French Toast

Next, Let’s add the butter in a frying pan and then add the slice of bread and fry for 3 minutes on each side.

When the French toast is ready, it is going to look dark brownish on both sides. Now that the toast is cooked, let’s add your favorite fruits and some maple syrup. And that’s how you make French toast. Nonetheless, if you did like this recipe don’t forget to subscribe to my YouTube Channel and I’ll see you on the next recipe.

Tips and Tricks on How to make French Toast

  • First, use stale sourdough or stale bread. if it is 2 or 3 days old then it is perfect!
  • Next, use thick slices of bread. Roughly about 2.5cm/1 inch thick.
  • Next, let the bread soak for at least 5 minutes. That way the French Toast will be very soft.
