How to make french toast with egg – step by step photos
1. This step is optional but i prefer to do it to keep the bread firm before dipping in the egg mixture. Toast them on a low heat on both the sides until they turn firm.
2. Break egg to a bowl and add sugar, salt and milk. I have used oat milk.
3. Beat them together. Add cinnamon powder. You can add it at the previous step too.
4. Beat until frothy.
5. Heat a pan with butter.
6. Transfer the egg mixture to a wide bowl. I used the same bowl since mine was wide enough to dip the bread.
7. Dip the bread in the egg mixture on both the sides.
8. Wipe off the drippings to the bowl. Place it in the hot pan.
9. Toast it on both the sides until golden. If using a large pan, you can toast all the slices at one time.
Sprinkle powdered sugar or serve with maple syrup.
