How to make French toast
Most of us have had French toast for breakfast.. It is both delicious and healthy that is why we never seem to get tired of it. Contrary to its name, French toast was not created in France. It may have well been created by Romans when it was first mentioned in the Apicius, a book or Roman recipes written back somewhere during the 4th or 5th century.
It has been around for so long that it has become a household name and a breakfast favorite. So if you have never tried it and are curious about it, below is what you need to do to make your own French toast. The steps are easy and the ingredients are easy to find.
What you need:
Butter or margarine
1/3 cup milk
¼ teaspoon vanilla extract
1 loaf of bread (or as many as you want)
Powdered sugar, syrup, or anything you want to add as sweetener
What to do:
Fits, crack all the eggs into a bowl. Then add the milk, nutmeg, vanilla extract, and cinnamon to the mix. Beat them all together with a fork or a whisk.
Start heating up the pan and set the stove to the highest heat. When it is hot enough, turn it down to medium setting.
Soak all the bread into the egg and dairy mixture. Make sure to coat the bread in both sides and let it absorb the mixture well for better flavor.
Next, heat the butter or margarine on the pan. This it to add flavor and make sure the bread does not stick to the pan.
Then set the slices of soaked bread on the pan. Bake the bread until they are golden brown. Toasting them until they are black works just as well.
After that, take them out of the pan and finish all the rest. Place them on a plate and sprinkle with powdered sugar, add syrup or any sweetener you choose. The toasts are good just the way they are too! They are best consumed right away.
