Extra fluffy french toast made with a little special ingredient in the batter. This gives you restaurant quality french toast that’s a little crispy on the edges and soft and doughy in the middle. I won’t make it any other way!
You know that feeling you get when your eyes open and realize its the weekend? You breathe a sigh of relief because you know you can actually luxuriate in a leisurely breakfast. Going out is always fun, or you can use that extra time in the morning to make something special at home. I try to eat healthier during the week and give myself some more leeway on the weekend, so I’m always planning weekend breakfasts in advance. When I tried the sourdough french toast for the first time at a cute little restaurant in London, I knew I had to recreate it at home.
Sourdough is one of my favorite breads ever, with its distinctive tang and crustiness. Although there are many baked goods that I’ll happily attempt to make at home, I haven’t worked up the nerve yet to make sourdough starter. Maybe one day! For now, I’ll happily purchase my sourdough bread- and make sourdough french toast out of it.
You got french toast, and then you have this.
I have my standard french toast recipes. You know the ones- whisk together some egg, milk or heavy cream, vanilla, a pinch of cinnamon and go from there. Always yummy but not standout quality. Until this one, with an ingredient I’ve never used before in a french toast bater- flour! You have to trust 2k good reviews on allrecipes right?
How to store extra french toast:
Extra french toast? This freezes really well, individually wrapped and in an airtight bag. When you want to reheat them, you can either microwave, bake at a 190C (375 F) oven for 8-10 minutes, or my favorite way, just toast the frozen bread in a toaster.
