Step By Step Guide To Make French Toast
Step 1: Use good quality, thicker slices of bread. The bread needs to be thick to hold milk and egg, or it’ll end up in a soggy mess.
Step 2: Crack an egg into a bowl. Add milk and vanilla essence. You can use 1 egg for every two slices of bread. Mix well. Don’t season too much, it will overwhelm the taste. Do not add too much milk, the toast will turn out to be leathery.
Step 3: Put a pan on the stove.
Step 4: Spray cooking oil, or put butter into the pan to prevent bread from sticking to the pan. If this is left out, the bread will end up stuck to the pan, and when you are finally able to get it off, the bread will be charred, a sad consequence of being burnt on the stove for too long a time.
Step 5: Once the pan is heated and the butter is splattering, turn down the heat.
Step 6: Dip the bread into the egg mixture, making sure that it is coated well on each side.
Step 7: Carefully place the bread on the pan. Do not throw the bread on to the pan, place it carefully, or the butter will splatter out and hurt your skin.
Step 8: Cook till the bread is golden brown on both sides. Don’t leave the bread for too long on the stove, or it will be burnt. Also, don’t under-cook the bread.
Step 9: When flipping, make sure the center is cooked. Due to improper cooking, the sides are often burnt and the center is under-cooked.
Step 10: Add maple syrup. French toast tastes best with maple syrup. You can also add whipped cream and fruit. Sugar can also be considered for a sweeter taste.
Step 11: Don’t go overboard with the toppings. Too sweet French toast is not very appetizing, and the original flavor will be lost.
