Description

Recipe for Perfect French Toast with crispy edges, a custardy middle, a berry compote, with a drizzle of pure maple syrup, and a sprinkling of icing sugar.


Ingredients

Scale

For the French Toast

  • Stale Baguette, cut into 1-1 ½ inch thick slices
  • 3 eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1 cup half and half
  • 2 tsp Vanilla Extract
  • Pinch of Ground Cinnamon
  • Pinch of Ground Nutmeg
  • 2 tbsp Honey
  • Unsalted butter, for cooking
  • Icing Sugar, for dusting
  • Pure Maple Syrup, for deliciousness

For the Berry Compote

  • ¼ cup Mixed Berries
  • ¼ cup Water
  • 1 tbsp Sugar
  • 1 tsp Balsamic Vinegar

Instructions

For the French Toast:

  1. (Optional) Preheat oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit.
  2. Mix eggs, half-and-half, vanilla extract, cinnamon, nutmeg, and honey in a small flat bottomed dish.
  3. Soak baguette slices in the batter (depending on the thickness of your bread and size of your dish, 30 seconds to 1min 30 seconds per side). Remove and keep aside.
  4. Heat pan to low-medium heat, and coat with butter. Cook the soaked bread for 1-3 minutes per side.
  5. (Optional) Bake the cooked slices in the oven for 8-10 minutes.
  6. Serve immediately, dressing with icing sugar, maple syrup, and berry compote.

For the Berry Compote:

  1. Mix all the ingredients over medium heat, stirring regularly until the mixture reduces to the consistency / flavour you like. (I like mine to reduce a lot as I prefer strong deep flavours, but you do you bestie!)
