Classical French Toast is an American Dish
French toast has been around for a long while. According to Neatorama.com, It was originally created in Albany, New York by an innkeeper named Joseph French in 1724. French toast is a combination of eggs and bread. Some people put added flavorings right in with the egg mixture. I find that I like to add them after cooking so people can dress up their french toast with the toppings that they like to eat.
Variety of Toppings
My husband likes his with maple syrup. I love maple syrup too, but not on my french toast. You might be thinking I am crazy. Cinnamon and sugar sprinkled on top is the way I love mine. The french toast is also great with jams, jellies, or fresh fruit. I have also added a bit of whipping cream to really top it off if I have it with fresh fruit. However, my go-to preferred way of eating this classical french toast is with cinnamon and sugar. My brother-in-law likes to have his with Bananas, maple syrup, and whipping cream.
No matter which way you end up choosing as your favorite, this classical french toast can be made in no time. I like to think of it as an economical breakfast too. Great for weekends or when company is staying over. Easy to do, no planning required, no prep the night before. Just get up and have breakfast for a crowd quickly with not much effort.
The bowl that I used in the pictures below to mix the egg and milk mixture is very, very old. It works so nice to fit the bread in and mix the ingredients. Here is another type of bowl that would also work well for this application.
