Who’s hungry?! French toast is one of those meals that always hits the spot–whether you’re having it for Sunday breakfast, or whipping some up for a midnight snack. Eggy, thick, buttery, syrupy… Happily for us, Miss James from Bleubird Vintage is sharing her go-to recipe, which not only satisfies two adults, but also her three hungry kiddos! Here goes…
The Best French Toast You’ll Ever Have
By Miss James from Bleubird Vintage
Not to toot any horns or anything, but I make really good french toast. It’s delicious and my kids ask for it at least two times a week. It’s simple and quick and always delivers.
Thick sliced bread (preferably brioche or challah)
1/4 cup of heavy whipping cream
1 tsp vanilla
1 tsp cinnamon
Pinch of salt
1 tablespoon honey
1 tbsp butter
Note: One of the most important things in this recipe is to get a good thick loaf of bread. I like to use brioche or challah.
Whisk together eggs, cream, vanilla, cinnamon, salt and honey in a large shallow bowl.
Heat cast-iron skillet on the stove. (Cast iron is the best, since it cooks evenly and doesn’t stick.) Melt butter over medium-low heat in the center of your skillet.
Dip bread into the egg mixture so that both sides are fully coated–but not completely soaked or your french toast will be soggy. Place one or two pieces of the bread into your skillet at a time, depending on how many will fit into your pan.
Cook until golden brown, approximately 2 to 3 minutes on each side.
Remove from pan, and place on a rack or oven-safe plate inside a warm oven to keep warm until ready to serve.
Serve with a generous sprinkle of powdered sugar and your favorite syrup. Enjoy!
