Classic French Toast is a easy bread toast recipe ,that is made in 15 minutes. It’s my Sunday morning ease to laze around breakfast.

Preparation of French toast is very simple , just by soaking bread slices in milk and egg mixture. Use a day old bread and thick bread slices for making Classic french toast. One more important key to consider while preparing French toast is soaking time of bread slices.

Soak bread slices completely ,such that it totally drunk the egg milk mixture and still holds together , a day old bread helps to hold it together. If you use fresh bread from oven then ,there are chances of it falling apart when soaked in the egg milk mixture. If bread slices are not completely soaked ,then you end up getting a dry toast.

So to get a custardy interior ,soak bread completely . Cook on  medium -to low heat , such that bread slices are golden and crisp outside and thoroughly cooked inside.This toast is just sweet , if you want you can add more sugar.As I was serving with maple syrup,I have not added more sugar.

Other sunday morning, breakfast which I often do are : Spicy Oats Omelette ,  Spanish Potato Omelette  , Chessy Bell Pepper Toast  and   Scrambled Egg with Mushroom .
