French Toast via French Guy Cooking
Everything ‘the French Guy Cooking’ makes looks fantastic. Let’s start with his French Toast!! Get out the Cast Iron no. 12. This will make 5 whole slices of bread in two batches.
Slice bread 1/2″ thick using white sandwich bread. Cut each slice in half.
For the batter:
4 TBSP white sugar
Pinch of Cinnamon
Drop of vanilla
Touch of salt
Mix together with hand mixer (I used a whisk)
Beat in one cup whole milk (or cream.. depending on how bad you want to be I used 10% cream.)
I soaked them maybe a bit too long. They were really soft when I put them in the pan, so I cooked them slower then the second batch. You get a really nice soft custard-like center using more soaking time like this I found.
Preheat frying pan and cook at just under 3. Oil the heated pan and add a tablespoon or two of butter. My heat was not right to number 3, so it was a pretty slow cook. I let it get a good brown on it, then flipped. Turn over a few times to get a nice crust on it. Just before taking them out sprinkle with white sugar, flip, sprinkle with more white sugar, flip again. Fantastic with nothing on it, or as Greg likes his… drowning in maple syrup!!
