Mom's Secret French Toast
Servings: 10 slices
Author: Kitchen Nostalgia
  • 1 1/4 cup milk
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • a pinch of salt
  • 1/4 Tbsp vanilla extract
  • 1 Tbsp powdered sugar
  • 8-10 slices bread slices
  • 6-8 Tbsp oil* for frying
  1. Put 1 1/4 cup milk in a shallow dish or plate.
  2. Put eggs, 1/4 cup milk, salt, vanilla and sugar in another plate and whisk with a fork.
  3. Heat oil in a frying pan.
  4. Dip each bread slice in milk, about 5 seconds on each side. Be careful not to leave the bread in milk for too long, or it will disintegrate. If you take it out too soon, it will remain dry in the center. Adjust the amount of time you let the bread soak according to how thick and dry your slices are.
  5. Transfer each bread slice to the dish with egg mixture, turn immediately to another side to coat both sides evenly. Shake off the excess, and place the slices onto the hot pan. Fry each side on medium heat until golden. Take out of the pan and put on paper towel to soak excess fat.
Recipe Notes

*I didn't use butter for frying because it burns easily, even when it is mixed with oil.
