Food on Friday: Good-ol' French Toast

I love French Toast.
It's super simple, but boy can it get messed up if you're not careful.
I've made it numerous times.
And I always tried to perfect it.

(Now, when I say "perfect" I mean make it perfectly delicious, not perfectly healthy... Yet...)



Anyway, I think I'm getting pretty close. Here's my latest attempt, with rough measurements (because I don't measure very often).

.........................................................................................
Janae's Good-ol' French Toast

4 eggs
1/4 cup milk
1/4 cup plain yogurt
1/2 tbsp cinnamon
2 tbsp powdered sugar
6-8 slices of bread

Beat the eggs, milk, and yogurt together. Stir in cinnamon and powdered sugar. Dip slices of bread into egg mixture and place on medium-heated griddle. Pour extra spoonful of egg mixture over the top of each bread slice while the bottom is cooking. Cook until bottom is golden and still moist, 5-7 minutes depending on griddle temperature. Flip and cook the other side. Flip and cook each side longer if necessary. Top with fresh berries, syrup, and/or your favorite jam.

Something I've learned: lower temperature + longer cook time = better French toast

You may be starving, and you may not care if your French toast is dry and overcooked. But I do. I care if it's crispy, fluffy, and flavorful. 

And this recipe is exactly that.

The yogurt and milk keep the eggs moist and fluffy. I like to add yogurt into recipes sometimes just for that purpose.


This is my mother-in-law's cast iron griddle. Isn't it fantastic?



Fresh raspberries and strawberries are my favorite topping to many breakfast recipes.



What are your tips and tricks for making perfect french toast?
