French Toast Recipe with Homemade Syrup ingredients
- 6 large eggs
- 1/2 cup heavy cream
- 1/2 cup milk
- 1/4 cup granulated sugar
- 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 8 slices (1 inch thick) challah bread
- 6 tablespoons butter
- 1 cup maple syrup
How to prepare French toast
- In a shallow dish, whisk together the eggs, cream, milk, sugar, cinnamon, and salt.
- Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add 3 tablespoons of butter to the pan and let it melt.
- Dip each slice of bread into the custard mixture, coating both sides.
- Add the soaked bread slices to the skillet and cook for 3-4 minutes per side, or until golden brown.
- While the french toast is cooking, make the syrup. In a small saucepan, combine the maple syrup and 3 tablespoons of butter. Heat over low heat, stirring occasionally, until the butter is melted and the syrup is hot.
- To serve, divide the french toast among plates. Drizzle with maple syrup and enjoy!
- If you don’t have a challah bread, you can use any type of bread that is thick enough to support the custard.
- To make ahead, prepare the french toast mixture and bread slices up to 24 hours in advance. Cover and refrigerate. In the morning, bring the mixture and bread slices to room temperature before cooking.
- For a fun twist, add some fresh fruit to the french toast, such as sliced bananas, strawberries, or blueberries.
- You can also add a sprinkle of powdered sugar or cinnamon to the french toast for extra sweetness.
