  • Summary

    There are few things better than thick cut bread slices soaked in vanilla-scented egg custard and toasted until golden brown. French toast is perfect for weekends – it only takes 30 minutes and a few ingredients to make. One or two-day old bread is best for making French toast. If the bread is fresh, it will crumble or fall apart when added to the egg mixture or during cooking. French, Italian, brioche or Challah bread are all great for this.

    Ingredients

    • 4 large eggs
    • 1/2 cup (120 ml) milk
    • 1/4 cup (60 ml) heavy cream
    • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
    • Pinch of salt
    • 8 slices day-old bread (3/4-inch-thick)
    • 3 tablespoons butter, plus more for serving
    • Optional toppings: Powdered sugar, maple syrup, berries, whipped cream, cinnamon sugar (recipe below)
