Sourdough French Toast

  • 5 Farm Fresh eggs
  • 1/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1 1/2 t vanilla extract
  • 1t ground cinnamon
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • thick sliced, sourdough bread
  • non-stick pan spray
  • Combine all ingredients in mixing bowl.
  • Heat cast iron skillet or saute pan to medium.
  • Spray cooking pan with pan spray.
  • Dip slice of bread into batter, allow excess to drip off back into bowl.
  • Lay dipped bread into heated pan and cook for approximately 2 minutes on each side or until golden brown then remove from heat.
  • Continue with the remaining bread, serve immediately with choice of toppings.
  • Any type of bread may be used, but I like to use thick cut so it can soak up the batter.
  • After slicing bread, leave it out to "dry out" for an hour or so before cooking. Really fresh bread can lead to soggy French toast.
  • Additions to consider adding to batter: ground ginger or other spices, citrus zest and juice, or even a splash of your favorite after dinner spirit.
  • Toppings that we use include whipped cream, berry compotes or jams, spiced apples, and of course maple syrup.
  • This batter recipe will make enough French toast to feed about 4-6 adults.
