The purpose of this french toast recipe is to make use of a stale dinner baguette. Great if you had a dinner party, and you have some leftover bread.
- 1 French Baguette
- 4 Eggs
- 1 Cup Milk
- 3 Tablespoons Maple Syrup
- Dash Cinnamon
- 1 Tablespoon Butter
- Fresh Berries
- Icing Sugar
Slice the baguette into relatively thin slices.
Crack the 4 eggs into a casserole dish. Add a cup of milk. Pour in the maple syrup (as much as you like). Sprinkle a dash of cinnamon (again, as much as you like). Mix it all together.
Plop the bread slices into the french toast, cover it, and place in the fridge overnight.
Place the butter in a large pan on medium high heat. Once the butter has melted and begins to bubble, add the soaked up french toast from the fridge into the pan.
Once they start smelling like they are cooking, flip them over to cook the other side, and turn the heat down to low. Make sure the french toast cooks completely through, they will get really puffy.
After about 5 minutes on low, the french toast should be ready. Remove from pan, and serve with fresh berries and a sprinkle of icing sugar.
I like to take the leftover egg mixture and pour it in the frying pan. It makes delicious maple flavored scrambled eggs.
