French toast is one of those delicious and great ways to start your day - it only takes a few minutes to transform a couple of ingredients into something delightful. However, it’s not as easy as it sounds and there are probably a few things that you are doing wrong.
Don’t worry, there are some tips that can transform that soggy and burned toast into a mouthwatering treat. For this reason, at Great Harvest in Nashua, we would like to share with you some of the most common french toast mistakes.
MixtureAdding too much milk to the custard won’t allow the egg to cook - try to find the perfect balance between these two ingredients. If you are planning to add marmalade, syrup or powdered sugar, you shouldn’t add sugar to the custard, unless you have a sweet tooth.
BreadThat stale bread in your pantry can be useful after all, its texture will allow the bread to absorb the mixture without falling apart - remember that the slices should be around one inch thick. Also, soak the bread into the custard at least one minute per side, that way it will absorb as much custard as possible for a creamy inside.
HeatToo much heat will burn the sugar in the custard, leaving the center uncooked - medium heat is recommended and don’t forget to use a nonstick skillet, plus use butter and cooking spray to have a golden and crunchy french toast.
