The BEST French Toast! Fluffy and tender on the inside, gloriously browned on the outside.
- 4 eggs
- 2/3 cup milk
- 2 teaspoons of cinnamon
- 8 thick slices of 2-day-old bread (better if slightly stale)
- Butter (can sub vegetable oil)
- Maple syrup
- 2 teaspoons freshly grated orange zest
- 1/4 cup Triple Sec
- Fresh berries
1 In a medium bowl, whisk together the eggs, milk, and cinnamon. Stir in the orange zest and/or Triple Sec if using. Whisk the mixture until well blended and pour into a shallow bowl, wide enough to place a slice of the bread you will be using.
2 Melt some butter in a large skillet over medium high heat. Place each slice of bread into the milk egg mixture, allowing the bread to soak in some of it. Shake off the excess, and place the bread slices onto the hot skillet.
3 Fry the French toast until browned on one side, then flip and brown the other side.
4 Serve hot with butter, maple syrup, and if available, fresh berries.
