Classic French Toast

Classic French Toast

French toast is a classic breakfast dish loved by people of all ages. Whether you are making it for a leisurely weekend brunch or a quick weekday breakfast, this “Wicked Easy” recipe will guide you through creating the most delicious and fluffy French toast you have ever had, with a hint of cinnamon and a touch of sweetness.

Prepare the egg mixture: In a medium-sized bowl, whisk together the eggs, milk, sugar, vanilla extract, ground cinnamon, and salt until well combined. If your bread isn’t already sliced, cut it into even slices of your desired thickness.

At the same time, preheat a griddle or large non-stick skillet over medium heat.  

Dip each slice of bread into the egg mixture, ensuring both sides are coated evenly. Allow the bread to soak for a few seconds on each side, but don’t let it become soggy. 

Add a little butter to the preheated griddle or skillet and spread it evenly to coat the cooking surface. Then place the soaked bread slices on the preheated griddle or skillet. 

Cook each side for 2 to 3 minutes or until golden brown and cooked through. Repeat with the remaining slices of bread, adding more butter to the griddle or skillet as needed. Adjust the heat if necessary to prevent burning. 

Once all the French toast slices are cooked, transfer them to individual plates or to a serving platter. Serve immediately with your favorite toppings such as maple syrup and powdered sugar!

This French toast recipe is a simple yet decadent way to start your day. And whether you prefer it with classic toppings like maple syrup and powdered sugar or want to get creative with your choice of fruits and nuts, you can easily customize it to suit your taste.
