Servings: 4 servings
- 1 sourdough baguette* 2-3 days old
- 3 large eggs
- ¾ cup (175 ml) whole milk or full-fat oat milk
- 1 tablespoon (15 ml) maple syrup plus more for serving
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon
- ¼ teaspoon salt
- 2 tablespoons (28 g) butter
- Butter at room temperature
- Mixed fresh berries
- Confectioners’ sugar if desired
Preheat the oven to 275 degrees. Slice the baguette into 1-inch thick slices. Put the slices in a baking dish large enough to hold them in one layer.
Whisk the eggs, milk, maple syrup, vanilla, cinnamon and salt in a medium bowl. Pour the mixture over the bread slices and soak 5 minutes per side.
Heat the butter in a large (12-inch) non-stick skillet over medium-high heat. When the butter is melted, arrange half of the bread in the pan. Cook until golden on both sides, 2-3 minutes per side.
Transfer the cooked toast to a baking sheet and place in the oven to keep warm while the next batch cooks. Serve warm, topped with some berries, butter slices and sifted confectioners’ sugar.
*Use a standard size baguette, typically 18-24-inches long.
French toast will keep refrigerated 2-3 days. Reheat at 350 degrees for 10 minutes.
