Fluffy French Toast
French toast is one of my favourite breakfast treats. It’s a very common dish at a breakfast table in North-America, in Finland it’s known but with little bit different name (Köyhät ritarit) and mostly served as a dessert and in Austria I have not seen it to be served at all. In Finland it is typically served with whipped cream and berries where as in North-America it is served with Maple syrup.
I love it because it is delicious and it is quick&easy to make.
After I found this recipe a year ago I have not wanted to cook it any other way. With this recipe you just get the perfect consistency. The difference here is that when you make the milk-egg batter you actually add a bit flour to it. It makes all the difference! :)
This is how I made the French toast:
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
1 cup milk
1 pinch salt
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 tablespoon white sugar
8 Slices of toast
Butter for cooking
Side note: You can leave out the cinnamon, vanilla and sugar if you want to make the toast with more “neutral flavour”. This way if you are serving it to guests everybody can add the amount of toppings they see appropriate. You can use for example whipped cream, vanilla sauce, berries, banana slices, syrup, cinnamon, sugar…
- Measure flour into a large mixing bowl. Slowly whisk in the milk. Whisk in the salt, eggs, (cinnamon, vanilla extract and sugar) until smooth.
- Heat a frying pan with medium heat. Add butter on the pan once it’s warm/hot.
- Soak bread slices in mixture until saturated. Cook bread on each side until golden brown. Serve hot.
