Easy - delicious - french toast

There's no need to overcomplicate this simple and fantastically satisfying dish. Bread, eggs, sugar milk. A little cinnamon dusted on top, if you like. You could also dust with a bit of nutmeg, or stir a touch of vanilla into the mix at the beginning. 

Full recipe below the video. 


Makes around 6 slices (depending on the bread you use)

6 slices of white bread or brioche (fresh or stale)

3 eggs

75g caster sugar

240ml (1 cup) milk. 

Pinch of salt

butter for frying

Extra sugar for dusting - demarera works well if you have it. 

- Whisk the eggs, sugar and milk together well, soak your slices of bread in the milk for 20-30 seconds and set aside for a few minutes. This allows the bread to be evenly soaked without getting too soggy. 

- Fry the bread very gently in butter until lightly browned (2-3 minutes). Sprinkle the top (uncooked side) with sugar and turn over. Continue cooking until the sugar is well caramelised. 

- Remove to a warm plate while you finish cooking the rest. Dust with cinnamon or nutmeg, or just keep plain.
