When there’s white bread in our house we always make French toast. French toast is delicious and we like it best when it’s made from stale white bread. The name pain perdu is not without reason as it refers to this dish its ability to make stale/old bread taste good again. Today we will share a really easy recipe for French toast.
Also known as “pain perdu” in France or “wentelteefjes” in the Netherlands.
🍽 6 slices
100 milliliters of oat milk (you can use any type of milk)
2 teaspoons of cinnamon
6 slices of (white) bread
How to make it?
Mix the egg, milk, and part of the cinnamon in a low bowl. Put a baking pan on the stove and set it between low and middle heat. Add a slice of the bread to the mix and make sure both sides get covered in it. The bread, specifically stale bread, will absorb the mix very well. Bake the bread for a few minutes on each side in butter in the baking pan. Add some more cinnamon before putting in another slice of bread. That way the cinnamon gets evenly divided between the slices of bread. As a topping, we often add fruits, sugar, or syrup.
