Tina: French toast has become part of the Sunday morning routine in my home. It’s easy to make, and my kids and my husband love the golden-brown slices, which are crisp on the outside and soft and fluffy inside. As you can see in the video below, my daughter Nova loves to help, whisking eggs, dipping slices of bread, and sprinkling just the right amount of cinnamon and sugar. It’s a testament to how easy this recipe is, – even a child can do it:)
For French toast, I always use brioche bread. It has a soft and tender crumb with a delicate, melt-in-your-mouth quality resulting in a more delicate and custard-like interior, as the bread readily absorbs the egg and milk mixture. You can of course use other kinds of soft white bread, but if you want the right kind of buttery flavor and irresistible bouncy texture, you should go for brioche.
