Transcript:Homemade French ToastHi, I'm Rachel Edelman for About.com Food.
Today I'm going to show you how to make French toast.
Mixing French Toast BatterIn a bowl beat 2 eggs. Slowly add up to 1 cup of milk, until the mixture becomes a light creamy yellow. Add a pinch of salt. Sometimes I like to mix in some cinnamon.
Setting French Toast HeatTurn on the burner to medium high heat. Drop some water on the griddle to test the temperature. When it sizzles, grease it well with either butter or a non stick cooking spray.
Dip Bread in BatterCarefully dip the bread into the eggs and then flip it over to get both sides.
French Toast BreadYou can use almost any kind of bread for French toast. I'm going to use a large whole wheat bread.
Now place your piece on the griddle. Be careful not to soak up all the eggs with your first few pieces. For a special treat, use thick bread such as challah or texas sized bread. You want a slice that is at least half an inch thick
If you d like you can add a little cinnamon on the top of each slice.
Cooking French ToastAfter a minute or two, take a peek and see it if has browned on the bottom. Once the bottom is lightly browned, turn it over once. It should take half the time to cook the other side. Be careful that your griddle doesn't get too hot and burn the toast. When it's done remove each piece from the griddle and place them on your plate.
French Toast AccompanimentsServe hot with some maple syrup. Sprinkle some powdered sugar for an extra special treat.
