    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.

    I immediately went to the kitchen as soon as I watched this video and made the best French toast I've ever made. To be fair, it was the very first time I've ever made French toast, but it was fantastic nonetheless. Thanks Alex!

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

    Cast iron actually works better as a non stick skillet if it's ripping hot. Maybe not the best choice for vegan french toast. A non stick skillet would be very good here. Keep up the great work and congrats!

  • Ryan DeVries

    Thank you for your video. My version of French Toast is a super guilty one! For my egg wash I use egg nog. Which is great because sometimes you can get different flavors, and if I'm up for it, sometimes I make it from scratch. I don't stale my bread!! Instead I use a very dense think slice of a Demi loaf. It can withstand the soaking because it's already firm. As for toppings....I emaserate strawberries and roast and caramelize pecans
    I would add a photo but don't know how.

    I tried your "Standard" Version, but I had only non-stale standard Toast Bread, pre cut to thin slices. Never the less, it worked out beautifully - after I have burnt the first three slices I got the hang on it, how much heat and how often I have to flip it. It tasted sooooooooo great...

    I live in Kansas in the US and growing up my dad made french toast at least once a week for us. He still makes it for my mom and the only way he ever makes it is the indulgent way with butter and he tops it with butter and real maple syrup from Canada. I've never had it any other way.

    Sorry Alex, but PERDU in Russian means FART.
    According to your question about why Vegan FT might to stick to the pan i suppose its simply due to amount of sugar there is and lack of protein. You see since you dont use the eggs and dairy protein does not bind with sugar which makes the sugar caramelise on the bottom of the pan

    I'm late to the party here but my 14 year old son made a variation using both your authentic and vegan recipes because we were light on supplies but heavy on french toast craving.
    He made the batter using peanut butter instead of bananas or eggs and used brown sugar instead of regular sugar, the othe ingredients were used as per the recipe.
    He had also made some bacon so for some of them he used a dab of bacon grease in the pan to help crisp up the outside of the french toast.
    It was ABSOfrickinLUTELY delicious, especially topped with a drizzle of maple syrup, then it became this OH SO GOOD custardy and crispy decadance that reminded us of those maple nut goody candies but cranked up by 1000% and the salty smokey meatiness added by the bacon grease just added new levels of enjoyment to the experience.
    So I'd personally like to thank you for your efforts, not only have you helped me increase a 14 year old's knowledge and abilities in the kitchen helping him to make really good french toast, you've helped show him how to use that knowledge to explore variations and made his french toast a near mind blowing experience.
