Happy December 21st. Today I bring you French toast—delicious butter-fried bread, dipped in milk, eggs, sugar and cinnamon, that was meant for poor knights. They taste so delicious and are very easy and quick to make. We make French toast on weekends if we have some day-old bread lying around. It’s an easy way to use up stale bread, instead of throwing it out. French toast can be served as it is or with whipped cream and jam or with fresh berries and syrups. Try, for example, my delicious homemade raspberry jam. Maybe you should try this recipe during the Christmas holidays? Enjoy!
200 ml milk
1 tbsp. sugar
1 tsp. cinnamon
4 slices white bread, preferably a little stale
Ca. 10 g butter
Ca. 200 ml cream for whipped cream
Whisk the eggs, milk, sugar and cinnamon together in a deep bowl. Heat a frying pan and add a good blob of butter. Dip the bread slices in the egg mixture—allow the bread to soak for a moment on each side. Fry the bread slices on both sides in the brown butter until golden and crispy.
Serve the warm French toast immediately, just as it is or with whipped cream and jam, or with a little syrup and fresh berries. Bon appetit!
