Who doesn’t love Sunday mornings? They embody relaxation. To me they are one of the highlights of the week. You sleep in. You start your day with a pot of steaming hot coffee. I usually drink mine in my cozy corner sitting in the amazing hanging chair that my fiancé gave me for Christmas. To make a good Sunday even better, French Toast with maple syrup is just the perfect treat.
- 8 slices of brioche bread or sandwich bread
- 1 cup of heavy cream
- ½ cup of milk
- 2 eggs
- ½ teaspoon of cinnamon
- 1,5-2 tablespoons of brown sugar
- Vanilla extract
- 1 pinch of salt
- Butter for the pan
- Lots of maple syrup
I like my French Toast extra fluffy. I achieve this by using heavy cream in my egg mix. It works beautifully. I am aware that this certainly doesn’t make this a “healthy choice breakfast”, but for me Sundays are for indulging.
Start by whisking eggs, heavy cream and milk in a shallow container that is large enough to fit your brioche or sandwich bread. With brioche it will be even thicker and fluffier than with sandwich bread, but it sure will be tasty regardless which one you choose. Add cinnamon, vanilla, brown sugar and salt. Heat the oven to 100 degrees Celsius/ 210 degrees Fahrenheit. Melt a bit of butter in the pan while soaking the bread in the egg mix on both sides until it is saturated. Fry the bread in the pan on medium heat until it has a golden brown color. Place the toast in a skillet in the oven to keep it warm until you finished preparing all your bread slices. Serve with maple syrup and crispy bacon.
