Around our house weekend lunch is a time for fun. Especially when the kids can help, and our boys love helping. This is one of the reasons why they are willing to try just about everything we put in front of them. They have trust in us as they watch and participate in the cooking process. Recently, I fancied up my French Toast recipe. It is no longer just a simple egg batter but more of a work of art that creates a beautifully sweet, but not over the top French Toast that really needs no added syrup or toppings.

Ingredients

  • Please take these measurements with a grain of salt (no pun intended). I don’t think I have ever measured anything when making this recipe. These are meant as a guide.
  • 4 slices Bread*
  • 4 Eggs
  • 1 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar or maple syrup (or both)
  • ½ tsp cinnamon
  • *Breads come in all different types. I’ve personally used Challah/egg bread and cinnamon raisin loaf with this recipe and they are both delicious. Any bread will do though. A fun trick might be to us a baguette and create little mini French Toasts.

Instructions

  1. Depending on your kids you could let them do as much or as little of the prep as you think they are capable of. Both Dyl and Ry can crack eggs so I let them handle that part they also dump the other ingredients in the bowl. They do stay far away from the electric griddle and stove.
  2. Crack the eggs into a bowl and add in the vanilla, cinnamon and brown sugar.
  3. Preheat your frying pan or griddle. Preheat your cooking top to about 350, or medium heat.
  4. Slice your bread and put it in a shallow dish.
  5. Pour the egg mixture on top of the sliced bread and let it soak in for a few minutes
  6. Flip the bread over and give the dish a shake and let the bread soak again.
  7. Cook each piece of bread for 3 – 4 minutes per side.

Quick Tips:
