An all time favorite of mine, french toast. You just can’t go wrong! It’s light and buttery with just the right amount of sweetness.. and! it compliments bacon beautifully. It was always my go-to breakfast at Gram’s house growing up. I remember eating this at her kitchen table with my brothers and her, playing eye-spy in an almost entirely white kitchen. It’s more than just food, it’s comfort, home, and fond memories.
Next time try this:
- First, whisk maple syrup and cinnamon together in the bowl, (I eyeball everything for french toast, it all depends on how sweet or spiced you want it) this will evenly disperse the cinnamon, leaving you with no clumps.
- Whisk in small, and I do mean small, chunks of cold butter into the batter at the last minute. The little chunks of butter stick to the bread when you dip it, and melt on the griddle infusing a rich buttery taste throughout.
- Like all things, make sure your pan is hot enough, steamed french toast has no flavor.
- Use less syrup when dressing your french toast, substitute fresh fruit on top instead.
- Sprinkle a touch of cinnamon-sugar over top right before serving.
