WEEKEND FRENCH TOAST
Updated: Mar 25, 2018
We make this almost every weekend in our house, and I love serving it because my 6yo refuses to eat eggs, but with this recipe each big slice of bread gets almost a whole egg absorbed into it. Sneaky! We serve it with a dusting of powdered sugar and cinnamon, but you do you - maple syrup, berries, bananas, chocolate hazelnut spread - anything goes.
Kid Duties - have your child do any or all:
Measure ingredients and mix batter
Dredge slices of bread in batter
Flip french toast (closely supervised, 6+)
4 large eggs
splash of whole milk (about 1-2 tbsp)
1 tsp pure vanilla extract
1/4 tsp to 1/2 tsp cinnamon
Bread of choice (we use Beckmann's California Sourdough but if you're feeling fancy use sliced brioche)
Butter for the pan
Whisk eggs, milk, vanilla and cinnamon into a shallow dish or bowl. Heat griddle or pan on stove top over med heat. Place butter on the griddle - when it's melted and starts barely bubbling, dredge a slice of bread in the batter, making sure to cover both sides, and place on the butter in the pan. Let sit, checking the heat and taking a peak occasionally. When it's nicely golden brown (not too dark!) flip it over, turn the heat down slightly, and cook the other side until it's also a light golden brown.
Slide onto a plate and serve immediately with your choice of toppings.
