Ingredients of French Toast for One
- You need of thick slices of bread (~ 3/4"). I like brioche, challah, and Texas toast. Slightly stale is even better.
- You need of extra maple syrup or powdered sugar to finish.
- You need of butter for cooking.
- It’s of Custard ingredients:.
- It’s of large egg.
- It’s of whole milk (If you like it richer, you can use half and half or cream. If lighter, lowfat milk.).
- You need of kosher salt.
- You need of grinds (or small pinch) of cinnamon.
- Prepare of vanilla extract.
- It’s of maple syrup or sugar.
Heat up your pan on medium to low heat and then once it's heated up add in your cold butter. Dredge one slice at a time into the egg mixture making sure to cover the whole slice. Add to the pan and cook for a couple of minutes on both sides until both sides are browned. Serve with pure maple syrup and enjoy!
French Toast for One step by step
- In a medium bowl, mix all the custard ingredients and beat or whisk until thoroughly combined. (Sometimes I like to pick out the chalaza, which is the twisty white cord from the egg.).
- Pour the custard mixture in a baking dish and soak your bread in the custard, flipping after about 20 seconds to make sure both sides absorb the mixture..
- Preheat your frypan to medium, melt about a Tablespoon of butter on it and spread it around..
- Cook your French Toast for about 3 to 4 minutes per side or until each side is golden brown, and the center of the bread has firmed up from the custard cooking through. If you see that the toast is browning too quickly for the custard to cook through without burning the toast, turn the heat down just a bit..
- If you can't fit both whole pieces of bread on your pan or griddle, cutting the bread slices in half might enable you to arrange them so you can cook them in one batch..
- Enjoy with a drizzle of maple syrup or sprinkling of powdered sugar. :).
Dip one slice of brioche into the egg mixture. This is a great, simple recipe for french toast. If your using thicker bread or are soaking the bread for a while, I would suggest covering the griddle or pan with a lid. This will cook the inside of the bread, making it less soggy. I also prefer to use butter or margarine in the pan rather than oil, gives it more flavor.
