Maple Syrup French Toast
Today, I was looking for a very easy French toast recipe I could make and photograph for an article I'm writing. I decided to give this one a try. It was submitted to the site in 2009 by "shannond". It's now March 2013 and I'm pretty happy with how the photos turned out. But the bonus is... this French toast is really, really tasty. The only change I made was to reduce the maple syrup to 2 Tablespoons. I'd recommend that. It had the perfect amount of sweetness and still delivered tons of maple flavor.
- 3/4 cup milk
3 large eggs
3 Tablespoons pure maple syrup
1 pinch cinnamon
1 pinch salt
2 Tablespoons butter
4 thick slices Challah bread or 6 slices regular white sandwich bread
How To Make Maple Syrup French Toast
Whisk the milk, eggs, maple syrup, cinnamon and salt together in a large bowl.
Melt butter in a large skillet over medium high heat (if making in batches, save half the butter for the next batch).
Soak the bread in the egg batter. Make sure both sides are completely coated. Cook until the underside of the bread is golden brown. Turn and cook the other side until golden brown. Do this with the remaining bread slices.
Serve the french toast hot with more butter and more pure maple syrup.
If you don't have Challah bread, you could try thickly sliced French bread... or for a treat, try King's Hawaiian Sweet Bread. Also works great with plain old white sandwich bread.
Mr Breakfast would like to thank shannond for this recipe.
