I think I am in love!
I found the perfect bread to make French Toast and itis LA BOULANGERIE Super Flakey Croissant Toast!
World Wide, the Croissant is everyone’s favorite pastry, but now in a mouth-watering loaf-style toast. I discovered this wonder bread while stocking my kitchen box from Imperfect Foods. With a glossy crust and a soft buttery inside, it looks almost too good to eat. Almost. A simple addition to any breakfast or lunch, enjoy it fresh with butter and jam, toasted and topped with avocado, or go crazy and make French toast, like I did in the recipe below. With top-quality, non-GMO ingredients and cage-free eggs, this toast tastes like it is just fresh out of a Parisien bakery. Who says you cannot travel from your kitchen!
And even if you cannot find LA BOULANGERIE Super Flakey Croissant Toast in your area, any thick sliced, brioche, challah, Italian, or plain white sandwich bread will work as well.
Serves 4 to 6
8 slices (1-inch thick) brioche, Italian, or plain white sandwich bread
1 cup whole milk
1 cup heavy cream
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
6-8 tablespoons unsalted butter
confectioners’ sugar, for dusting
seasonal fresh fruit, for garnish
warm maple syrup,for serving
Preheat the oven to 170º F.
Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.
In a large bowl, whisk together the milk, cream, sugar and cinnamon; and then whisk in the eggs and vanilla. Pour the egg batter into a shallow 9 x 13-inch baking dish. Add the bread and allow the bread to soak for 5 minutes.
Melt 2 tablespoons of butter in a cast iron skillet of medium heat. Add the soaked bread to skillet, two pieces at at time, and fry until golden brown on both sides. Placed the toast on a baking sheet and place it in oven to keep warm. Repeat the process with remaining slices of bread.
Transfer the toast of a platter. Dust with confectioners’ sugar and garnish with seasonal fresh fruit. Serve family style with maple syrup, if desired.
Voila, easy French toast.
