Sorry for the large file!

Last week I decided I wanted to make a tutorial. Last Saturday, 7 am, I was half-sleep cooking french toast and thought it would make a great tutorial. Later that day I discovered it doesn't.

French toast may be too easy to deserve a tutorial, but well I already had the pictures... and I couldn't find another one in DA, so mine is already the better french toast tutorial, ha! (I hope that didn't sound as lame as it did in my head).

Bleh, well at least I got over the first tutorial issue. It was good practice and my next tutorials will be better, I promise ;) (not that it will be hard to get better than this...).

Awesome tips from awesome people:

:bulletpurple: I have another way of doing this (my grandma's recipe): bread is better if it's day old, beat the eggs and add a pich of salt, warm up the milk in another bowl (I use microwave); dip the bread first in milk and roll it with a fork (but be quick :) ) and then dip the bread in eggs. Everything else is like in your tutorial :D
It is a great way to use leftover bread (it can be a day or two old), and it's soft and moist :) by ~leilani-m

:bulletpurple: Give it a try sometime, instead of adding sugar etc cook it all up the give it a light salting nothing else. Very different taste! by ~Sharpk

:bulletpurple: the best way to make french toast is with leftover challah bread. it sucks in alot more juices ^^ add some cinamon, milk, and eggs by ~SoUrLeMoNaDexx

I have no problem answering :D I think that my favorite is crème brûlée, and crepes XD I've been interested in trying macarons, but they're a bit difficult to find here so I may have to make my own :P

My mum calls this 'gypsy toast' when we have it at home. I always thought French Toast was the teeny tiny slices of toasted bread you see around Christmas. Just shows you shouldn't trust cracker boxes about anything.

Ooh, sweet recipe! We call this 'Pain perdu', lost bread xD
Also I've never tried with this kind of bread, always using old remains of baguette.
I'll try following this next time! With cinnamon! :la:

lol I suppose it would be weird to call it French Toast in France :XD: thanks for letting me know!

Oh I've never tried it with baguette, they're kinda fancy here, so we always eat them before they get hard. But it sounds like it could taste good :D

xD The last time I made French toast, I failed miserably. xD How? ...I forgot to add sugar and I put in salt instead xP

Talty Featured By Owner Aug 7, 2011   Artisan Crafter
HAHAHAHAHA! oops, I know of some people that prefer their french toast with a bit of salt, but if you poured salt as if it was sugar... I can only imagine the horrible outcome :noes:

Thank you for sharing that funny story, I hope you didn't get traumatized :XD: I know I would.

oMG!!! This was the first time I ever ever ever made french toast and I was worried that it would come out soggy in the middle since I had fresh thin regular bread. And it happened with my Mother's once, and since she never fails at cooking it was scary. But I'm sooo glad I braved the forfront and tried it out!!! It was soooo delicious! I added sugar, cinnamon, and brown sugar to my egg mix and I will cut back on it next time, but I have never had a more scrumptious homemade fresh toast! I can NOT wait to do this for my boyfriend this weekend for brekky! Thank you thank you thaaaank you!

me too! i'll have to get up early enough to get more bread, because I've made it at least twice already this week. I'm trying to think of other additives too! I've actually found a fancy smancy one that makes my mouth water thinking about it. :[link] it seems so delicious it's stupid :giggle:

Hehe, it is! :aww: And it was okay, not stellar like I was expecting it to be. But I know what I did wrong -- too much egg! It's hard to control how much egg gets on it when you dip it with a fork. Also, I only used about half of the egg mixture I made up! :blush: So I think next time I'll only use one egg and brush it on with my silicone brush. Also maybe add a little more sugar to the mix.
