I’ve got a new cooking video for you today – How to Make French Toast.
This recipe can be made with any sort of dense bread, so you can choose between gluten-free, grain-free, Paleo, etc. I like to serve the french toast with maple syrup, berries and whipped cream.
How to Make French Toast
To keep the video on the shorter side, I only used 4 pieces of bread, but the recipe calls for 8 pieces.
For the French Toast:
1 cup whole milk (or coconut milk for dairy-free/Paleo)
2 large egg yolks
1 tablespoon maple syrup
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
Pinch of Celtic sea salt
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 tablespoon ghee, leaf lard, duck fat, etc. (any heat that can be used at a high heat)
8 thick slices dense of stale bread (I used my grain-free banana bread)*
For the Topping:
1/2 cup maple syrup
1 cup whipped cream (optional)
Place each piece of bread into the milk mixture. Let the each side of the bread sit for 20 seconds. Using a pair of tongs, transfer the soaked bread over to the hot pan. Let the bread cook for 1-2 minutes until the bottom side is golden brown. Using a spatula, flip the bread and continue cooking an additional 1-2 minutes until the second side is golden brown.
Serve immediately with maple syrup, berries and whipped cream (if using).
*I like to place the bread on a cooling rack that has been set over a baking sheet and leave it out overnight so the bread gets stale. If you forgot to do this step, you can put the bread in a 300 degree F oven for about 10 minutes, until stale.
Note: I only test the recipes on my site with the listed ingredients and measurements. If you would like to try a substitution, you are welcome to share what you used and how it turned out in the comments below. Thanks!
