Want to make the best French Toast at home? Let me show you exactly how. We’ll use the perfect mixture of eggs and milk, some vanilla extract, and a little butter on the pan. And don’t worry about getting any special kind of bread. You probably already have a loaf of your favorite bread in the kitchen right now. Let’s go ahead and use that!
I’ve found that the very best ratio of eggs/milk is 4 eggs for 1 cup of milk. This gives you excellent, rich and delicious french toast and works excellent with most types of bread. Personally, I love using good old classic white bread for French Toast. I’ve always got it on hand and it’s perfect to make a whole stack so that everyone can dig right in.
We’ll also use add 2 teaspoons of vanilla extract. Vanilla extract gives French Toast that special taste, that flavor that you know and love. It turns the egg and milk mixture into a delicious, almost custard like taste which toasts up so good with the bread. So remember… 4 eggs, 1 cup of milk and 2 tablespoons of vanilla extract is your perfect recipe for making amazing French Toast at home.
Lastly, French Toast is extra delicious if you use real maple syrup and powdered sugar. After you plate the toast, first add a pat of butter or margarine, followed by the syrup, and finally some powdered sugar. A great idea for adding the powdered sugar is to place some in a salt shaker. This was you can just add a few dashes to sprinkle nicely on top. A flour sifter also works well for powdered sugar.
