What is French Toast?

French Toast, also known as "eggy bread," is a dish where stale bread slices are given a new life by being dipped in a mixture of beaten eggs, milk, and often flavored with cinnamon or vanilla. Originating centuries ago, this comfort food has been enjoyed worldwide under various names, such as "pain perdu" in France, which means "lost bread," reflecting its resourceful nature of using leftover bread. The variations are numerous, ranging from stuffed French toast with cream cheese and berries to savory versions with ham and cheese.

How to make French Toast?

  1. Let's start by preparing the bread slices; for this make deep cuts at the bottom of the slices. Using a squeezy bottle or a piping bag, fill the bread with nutella or any sauce or spread of your choice.
  2. Now to make the batter, crack the eggs in a bowl along with the cream,milk, cinnamon , nutmeg , sugar and our secret ingredient- maple syrup.
  3. Whisk all these ingredients together until well combined.
  4. Now soak the bread slices in the mix, making sure the liquid is well soaked into the bread from both sides.(Do not over soak the bread or it might tear apart)
  5. Now heat some butter on the Meyer Tamagoyaki Pan over medium heat and place the bread in it.
  6. Cook the Bread for 3-4 minutes on each side or until well cooked and a nice crust is formed on the outside.
  7. Finally remove the French Toast from the pan and plate it. Dust some cinnamon sugar (2 tablespoons sugar with ¼ tsp cinnamon powder) on top.
  8. Drizzle on your favorite sauces or spreads and serve with a dollop of cream cheese.
