Baguette French Toast


This is a rather luxurious breakfast, but it's perfect if you happen to have a stale baguette around. Just whisk a couple of eggs - I used about two, and about 250 ml of milk (that's one cup). Add a tablespoon of sugar, a lot of cinnamon, and perhaps a dash of vanilla extract. Dip the baguette slices, let them soak for just a little, then fry in butter. I like to add a little extra sugar on top of the slices before frying - it caramelizes, and gives a very crispy surface. (however, it obviously also adds sweetness.)

Serve with maple syrup, and if you'd like, a dollop of crème fraîche is perfect.

Oh yum that looks so good. I often have leftover baguette, I'll have to remember to do this next time.
