New Orleans French Toast (Pain Perdu)
(4 servings) Printable Version
Meanwhile, melt the butter in a heavy skillet and add the oil. When the butter and oil mixture is very hot, fry the soaked bread slices one or two at a time on each side, until golden brown. Drain on paper towels and hold in a warm oven until all the slices are prepared.
To serve, Sprinkle with cinnamon and powdered sugar mixture just before serving. Serve with Louisiana cane syrup, a strongly-flavored honey or any good syrup of your choice.
Pain Perdu translates to "Lost Bread". It is very important that the bread be stale. You'll get a soggy texture otherwise.

Very, very good. Tasted like cinnamon rolls. Served it with fresh fruit (kiwi, strawberries, blueberries) I made it for my family on Mother's Day am. My 4-year old loved it, as did my sweetie.
