The Best Father’s Day French Toast

With Father’s Day right around the corner, we’ve been gathering together our gift-collection and let’s just say… there’s not a single ‘No.1 Dad’ mug in sight. We have curated this collection so carefully and we truly love each and every piece, we hope you will too. Take a peek at the collection here. 

Gifting aside, there’s nothing more thoughtful than putting time and effort into something for your Father (or anybody deserving for that matter) and of course, we all know that food is the way to a man’s heart. Voilà, a tasty, easy home-cooked breakfast it is. 

A fool proof recipe in our house is French Toast, or if you’re from up North like us “Eggy Bread”. We insist that if you make this recipe then you use the fluffiest, softest loaf you can find, a brioche or Challah is perfect. Also, ensure that the crust is soft and that the loaf is not pre-sliced, that way you can make extra thick & chewy slices!

Ingredients:
1 x large loaf of brioche
3 x egg yolks
354ml of cream or milk
50g granulated sugar
1tsp Vanilla
1/4 tsp salt
1 tsp cinnamon
Pinch of nutmeg
1 tbsp butter
1 tbsp vegetable oil

Toppings:
Honey/Syrup
Berries
Powdered sugar
Yoghurt

Method:
1. If your bread is not pre-sliced, using a serrated knife slice the loaf into 1” thick pieces. Or thicker if you’re feeling extra wild.
2. In a medium sized bowl combine the eggs, milk or cream, the sugar, vanilla, salt, cinnamon and nutmeg. Whisk to incorporate.
3. Pour the mixture into a shallow dish or pan, place a slice of bread in the mixture for around 10 seconds. Flip the bread over and repeat on the other side. It should be soft and soaked but still hold it’s self together. Repeat with all the bread.
4. Heat a large skillet or frying pan over a medium-low heat. Once hot add in the butter and veg oil, swirl to coat the pan.
5. Place the eggy-bread into the pan, leaving a little space between each piece. Cook for around 3-5 minutes per side. They should be toasty and golden when flipped! You will probably have to do this in batches.
6. Plate up your French Toast and add any toppings that you fancy. We love honey and berries with a little yoghurt but it’s really personal preference!
7. Enjoy!
