Karl's Recipes: French Toast

I adapted this to my tastes from several different recipes for french toast, or pain perdu.

Preheat oven to 200° F.

  • 4 eggs
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 2 tablespoons raw sugar (see below)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon, ground
  • 1/8 teaspoon nutmug, ground
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
and beat until well-mixed and slightly frothy. Depending upon the bread being used, you may want to double the amount of sugar, or for plain white bread try substituting maple syrup.

on a griddle or large frying pan.

Working with one slice at a time, dredge

in the egg mixture, getting each side thoroughly coated but not soaked, then transfer to the griddle and sauté each side until golden brown. Unless you have a huge griddle, you won't be able to sauté more than two or three slices at a time, so transfer the finished slices to a flat baking dish in the oven to keep them warm until ready to serve.
