Recipe of the Day: Delicious French Toasts

My favorite thing to do Sunday morning is waking up late and whipping up something delicious. Lately, the most popular request at home are my special French toasts. I usually don’t share my secrets but I will make an exception. These could be served with thinly sliced strawberries  and bananas with syrup or even Nutella. I am sure you will all enjoy these.

Delicious French Toasts

(Serves 2-4)

Ingredients:
  • 8 thick slices of Challah bread, preferably 2-day old
  • 3 small eggs
  • 2/3 cup milk
  • 1/3 cup orange juice
  • 1/4 cup Cointreau
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons of cinnamon
  • Tiny dash of Club House Vanilla extract
  • Butter

For garnish

  • Maple syrup
  • Powdered sugar
  • 8 large sliced strawberries

Method

  1. Beat eggs, milk, and cinnamon together in a large bowl. Add orange juice and Cointreau. Make sure to blend very well.
  2. Dip each slice of bread into the mixture, allowing bread to soak up some of the mixture. Make sure it doesn’t soak to much. (Trick: count 2 seconds for each side).
  3. Melt some butter in a large skillet on medium high heat. Add as many slices of bread onto the skillet as will fit at a time. Fry until brown on both sides, flipping the bread when necessary. (I usually use a flat spatula to make sure not to squeeze the French toast)
  4. To serve, add the garnish you prefer. I like to sprinkle powdered sugar with sliced strawberries.

Let me know how it turns out!
