|FFWD~Sugar-Crusted French Toast|
|My new “go to” French Toast|
I have been making French Toast since I was about twelve years old. However, I have never made such a rich, decadent version. Dorie’s Sugar-Crusted French Toast was quite special. As the name suggests, it is crusted in sugar. Sprinkling sugar in the skillet over the melted butter, then placing the custard soaked bread over it, browning it slowly. Then sprinkling more sugar over the top before flipping it over. It’s made with a rich challah or brioche bread, preferable to whatever left over bread you have in the house. Lastly, it has a lot of cream and eggs. Much more than I’ve ever used for my standard version of French Toast. I’ve always added cinnamon to mine but this one relies on vanilla for it’s wonderful flavor. It was incredible! Leave it to the French to know all about French Toast!! Go figure.
My husband and I enjoyed this scrumptious French Toast, after our morning walk. It was a good thing we walked first. It didn’t seem quite as sinful! This one rates a 10!! I think I just found my new "go-to" French Toast recipe.
|We loved this one! I used Challah, and served it without syrup. It was definitely sweet enough.|
Dorie’s recipe for Sugar-Crusted French Toast can be found on Epicurious. The only difference is the recipe on Epicurious calls for all milk, and the one in the book calls for roughly half milk and half cream.
|Rich, decadent and custardy….leave it to the French!|
