Foodies and droolers, hear thee: Nov. 28 is National French Toast Day. Yes, this is an actual day, and we are definitely sharing french toast trade secrets.
So to celebrate this important day, we are sharing with you how to make the perfect french toast. So tie your apron, play a little Ariana or Cindy Munyavi (coz we all need a cooking playlist right!?) and try making french toast. FYI, it’s okay to fail the first time.
It’s always better to use day-old bread or almost stale bread so that your bread is not that soggy. To make the batter, beat two eggs, ½ cup of milk, a tablespoon of sugar, vanilla extract, and a pinch of salt in a casserole pan. You want the batter to come up less than halfway over the side of the bread to prevent over-dipping. Next, add the first secret ingredient–yogurt. Three tablespoons of unsweetened, whole milk yogurt add a creamy tang to the French toast. Quickly dip both sides of the bread into the batter and set them aside to let them absorb evenly.
Place the pan over medium heat and melt enough butter to coat the bottom of the pan. While the pan heats up, add your second secret ingredient–flour. Sift a light dusting of flour over the buttered bread to help crisp the outside. Fry the bread in the butter for about two minutes on each side, or until the outside is golden brown and crispy.
Top your homemade French toast with maple syrup, fresh fruit, jam or honey. Leftover French toast can be refrigerated and frozen in an airtight container. Simply reheat in the oven or toaster oven to keep the outside crispy.
And hey, we bet you will enjoy it— don’t forget to tag us in your french toast pictures.
