This is the Most Delicious Fluffy French Toast Recipe Ever
In honor of French Toast Day I thought I would post my most amazing and favorite french toast recipe! Nothing says Saturday morning like a delicious crispy plate full of french toast and fruit. Being that it is French Toast Day you might want to try several french toast recipes. Breakfast for dinner is totally acceptable!
The origins of french toast are not completely well known, but long before this breakfast classic was called “french toast,” it was called eggy bread or poor knight’s pudding around the world. One of the earliest versions of french toast has been traced back to the Roman Empire.
In France, the dish is called “pain perdu,” meaning “lost bread.” Why was it called lost bread? Originally, people made French toast from stale bread in order to use up old bread that would otherwise have been thrown away.
Fluffiest French Toast Ingredients:
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
1 cup regular milk
1 dash salt
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 tablespoon white sugar
12 thick slices of sourdough bread
Measure flour into a large mixing bowl. Slowly whisk in the milk. Whisk in the salt, eggs, cinnamon, vanilla extract and sugar until smooth.
Heat a lightly oiled griddle or frying pan over medium heat.
Soak bread slices in mixture until saturated. Cook bread on each side until golden brown. Serve hot and sprinkle with powder sugar. Adding fruit or fruit preserves is also fantastic.
