I've been making french toast for our peeps for 24 years now. I use to make it the way my mom taught me. It was good, and always one of my favorites. Then the invention of flavored coffee cream came to be and WATCH OUT SISTA, FRENCH TOAST HAS NEVER TASTED SO GOOD.
Here are the FOUR simple ingredience for what my peeps, and their friends tell me is the best french toast EVA!!!
Now if there is anything you've learned about me is # 1, I walk the OCD line, often getting my big toe wet in the OCD pond. What can I say but,I'm workin on it. #2, I love Blue Eyed Husband and my Peeps. And #3, I LOVE BUTTA, REAL SALTED BUTTA. (not as much as I love Blue Eyed Husband, but the peeps are neck and neck on a bad day) This real salted butta, is a very, very, very, important ingredient in this french toast. Please don't use liquid plastic. I mean margarine, or any other fake butter. It just will not taste the same.
Oh yeah, I don't measure stuff. I just pour in what looks right. Hey, thats 4 things.
When you mix the egg and Vanilla Cream together, I always use MORE cream, less egg. So it doesn't taste eggy, but real vanilla like. Don't worry, I really put a lot of cream, to a couple of eggs for a whole loaf of bread. You really can't put to much cream. When you think you've put enough, pour in a little more.
I know what your thinking. You'll just use real vanilla, not vanilla coffee cream. Maybe use skim milk trying to be all healthy like. Well, DON'T DO IT! Just try it my way once. You'll be hooked.
The last two things you REALLY need to do is use Texas Toast. You know, the thick kind of bread. If you don't, you'll end up with bread that is all soggy like.
Also, notice the nice BIG,pads of real salted butta on top of every flipped over piece of lightly browned french toast? PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE, do this. It really makes all the difference.
If you follow those simple steps, you too will be a French Toast Queen. The envy of all dog walkers on Saturday morning in the neighborhood. Everyone and the Mailman will be knocking at your door for YOUR famous french toast. The kids will come running from every corner of the house to join you at the table for breakfast. Their friends will ask to sleep over just so you can make YOUR famous french toast. You'll even be asked time and time again to make it for girly church sleep overs.
And if that weren't enough, your 13 year old who claims everything you do, every breath you take, every move you make annoys the crap out of her, will come to the kitchen and say, "MOM, THAT SMELLS SOOOOO GOOD!!!"
That last one is my favorite.
And yeah, your welcome friend.
