Easy French Toast

French Toast with Warm Maple Syrup and Fruit

Hello Readers of Saucy Girl’s blog! I hope everyone is having a wonderful summer so far. I’ve been MIA for a while… but I have been in action. Some of you may already know, via Facebook, that I am in the process of opening a small recreational cooking school with my daughter – Rachel, called “The Curious Kitchen“. We’re super excited, and hoping for an open date of August 1st. We’d love it if you’d give us a like and follow along with our progress on Facebook.

We’ve also started a Kickstarter Campaign. We only have 14 backers so far. If you want to read about our campaign and help out, click here.

I was feeling badly for neglecting my blog/website, because I really enjoy my food blog & love my readers! So, since the crazy hectic month of June is almost over, I will be doing weekly posts. No matter how busy I am, I’m still always cooking. I have lots of recipes and pictures to share with you all… like this Easy French Toast recipe.

I don’t know about you, but at our house, breakfast is not a meal shared during the week, but the weekend is a totally different story. On Saturday and Sunday I like a hearty breakfast, and I like to enjoy it leisurely. This easy French Toast recipe is delicious and quick. For this recipe I used a small French Sourdough loaf, but I also love making it with a nutty, multi-grain bread. The beauty of it is that you can use whatever bread you have on hand!

Serves 2

1 cup Milk or Half & Half
2 Eggs
1 Tbsp Sugar
1 tsp Cinnamon
1 tsp Pure Vanilla Extract
4 Slices of Bread of your choice (stale or day old bread works best)
2 Tbsp Butter

Best served with warm Maple Syrup and fresh fruit.

Whisk together the milk, eggs, sugar, cinnamon and vanilla in a large bowl.
Place bread (2 pieces at a time) into the mixture, turning once, and then allow it to soak up the liquid for a minute.
Meanwhile, melt butter in a large frying pan over medium heat.
Place the soaked bread into the frying pan and cook for 3 to 4 minutes per side, until golden brown and lightly puffed.
Remove from pan.
Sprinkle with powdered sugar and serve right away with warm Maple Syrup.

Note: If you are not serving it right away you can keep the French Toast warm in a 250 degree oven.
