The first time I made french toast was a complete disaster. The recipe had called for flour and the end result was not pretty and left me nearly in tears in because I couldn't make a simple thing like french toast.
This weekend I was determined to prove myself wrong, so, with a hungry boyfriend and a loaf of fresh-baked cinnamon bread, I tried again.
2/3 cup milk
3 large eggs
2 tablespoons granulated sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
A dash of nutmeg
2 tablespoons honey, warmed in the microwave for 30 seconds
1 1/2 tablespoons butter for melting
Whisk together milk, eggs, sugar, vanilla, and salt with a fork.
Melt butter in a frying pan over medium heat.
Dunk each slice of bread in the egg mixture on both sides before you add the bread to the frying pan. Cook until golden brown and then flip it. Let the other side cook until golden brown.
