French Toast

A very popular breakfast recipe, the French Toast is made with thick bread slices soaked in a mixture of beaten eggs and milk with vanilla and cinnamon powder adding to the overall flavor. Due to its easy preparation and a taste that is hard to top, it has become a universally liked breakfast dish.

The thick slices turn out quite juicy from the inside and are crispy on the outside. For toppings, while honey and maple syrups are often used, you can also go with a mix of fruits like bananas, apples, strawberries, ripe papaya and blueberries. Also, spreads are a commonality and you could try jams, peanut butter etc. I have fried the dipped bread slices in butter, so I am not adding it to the spreads mentioned before - I love the richness of the toast when the slices are fried in butter. While I mentioned maple syrup and honey, you could also use other syrups like the one I have shown below (Mango Cranberry syrup) or anything else of your choice.

This is a timeless breakfast dish and its easy to make and so delicious, so let us get to the recipe.
