HINTS AND TIPS:


* You will needcutting board, bread knife, weight, spoon and liquid measures, sauté pan or frying pan.

* French toast, like pancakes, is great for a special weekend breakfast. French toast is certainly much easier to prepare than pancakes and is a great place to start for beginner cooks.

* This dish is also known as ‘edgy bread’ in the UK; and in France, it is known as ‘pain perdu’.

* Cooking French toast in butter adds to the richness of the dish.

* Adding milk to the eggs is optional. Using just eggs mixed with the spices and sugar will give a richer and more eggy flavors.

* You could take 2 pieces of bread and sandwich sliced bananas or grated apple between them, then dip the sandwich in the egg mixture before frying.

* For a child’s birthday party, use star- or people shaped cutters to cut shapes from the bread before cooking.

* Try serving French toast as a dessert instead of a breakfast dish.

* French toast is often served as a sweet dish but can work as a savory alternative. Try replacing the cinnamon, vanilla and sugar with 1 cup grated parmesan cheese and salt and pepper to taste. Dip the
bread in the egg mixture before cooking.
