How to Make French Toast in 6 Easy Steps

Ingredients: – 4 slices of bread (thick slices work well) – 2 large eggs – 1/2 cup milk – 1 teaspoon vanilla extract – 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon – Butter or cooking spray for greasing the pan

Prepare the Bread: – Choose your bread and slice it into thick pieces. Stale bread works best because it absorbs the egg mixture without becoming too soggy. If your bread is fresh, you can leave it out for a bit to dry, or use slightly older bread.

Whisk the Egg Mixture: – In a shallow bowl, whisk together the eggs, milk, vanilla extract, and ground cinnamon. Make sure the ingredients are well combined.

Soak the Bread: – Dip each slice of bread into the egg mixture, ensuring both sides are coated. Allow the bread to soak for about 20-30 seconds on each side. The goal is to let the bread absorb the liquid without becoming overly saturated.

Heat the Pan: – Preheat a non-stick skillet or griddle over medium heat. Add a small amount of butter or use cooking spray to grease the pan.

Cook the French Toast: – Place the soaked bread slices on the hot pan. Cook each side until it's golden brown, usually about 2-3 minutes per side. Adjust the heat as needed to prevent burning.

Serve and Enjoy: – Once both sides are cooked to your liking, remove the French toast from the pan and place it on a serving plate. Add your favorite toppings, such as maple syrup, powdered sugar, fresh fruit, or whipped cream.
