    A homemade vegan condensed milk would be awesome for a very indulgent vegan version! Maybe to sweet hha, it could be some condensed milk mixed with a plain almond milk

    Great video!!! The topping I use for French toast is fried banana in butter, with a little yogurt! ( I cut the banana in half and then again lengthwise, before peeling). And I like to use sourdough bread.

    I feel so uncultured that to me french toast has always been pretty much putting butter on the top of the bread and using a toast to heat it up. I’m sorry guys.

    My husband makes a ... Savoury version.
    In the batter: use a sour ingredient instead of sugar, herbs of your choice instead of cinnamon (I prefer thyme and oregano). A little bit of salt.
    Cooked in butter is lovely.
    Toppings are maple syrup and ricotta cheese.

    I don’t want to be THAT guy. But, the “thin” bread you show is closer to 10mm. Where as the “correct” thickness slice is closer to double that, hence making it closer to a full inch at 25.4mm. Hey, maybe I did want to me THAT guy. :-D

    its served in Germany in a spicy version and not with white bread we use that with sourdough bread, then some Creme fraiche fresh spring oinons ,tomatos and shrimps or Serano Jamon. as u probably know we have a breadobsession but if it comes to Crossiants we fail utterly.
    The baseversion without the toppings is called "armer Ritter" what translated means "Poor Knight"

    I like to do it with challah, its better than sandwich bread and not as rich as brioche.
    Also, from my experience, stale bread does indeed bring a much more custard like result, so i let my challah sit outside for a couple of days.

    Lol I used a whole loaf of stale sour dough, tripled the recipe, split the loaf in half then squish it a little in the pan for the egg to even out. And damn was actually really good fed four of us, in the mountains of NZ. Thanks Alex couple pasta recipes going to try next.

    It sticks to the pan due to the higher surgar content. Cook on lower heat, or reduce the maple syrup.
