Fluffy and tender on the inside, and golden crisp on the outside, this is the best French Toast we've tasted during our trip to Japan last summer. I've re-created this amazing French toast by following the chef's recipe! Make it this weekend for breakfast or brunch!
In a large bowl, beat the eggs.
Add ¼ cup sugar and ½ tsp vanilla. Whisk well to combine.
Add 2 ½ cup milk and whisk well together.
Cut the French baguette into 1.5-2 inch (4-5 cm) thickness.
Pour the leftover mixture into the baking dish.
Let it soak for 5 minutes, and flip to soak the other side for 5 minutes. The side facing up now is the “dry” side. You can prepare fruits, powder sugar, and maple syrup during this time.
Preheat the oven to 350 ºF (180 ºC). Grease the rimmed baking sheet with butter. Heat 1-2 Tbsp butter in the frying pan or griddle.
Cook until the bottom is golden brown. Then turn over to cook the other side until golden.
When both sides are nicely brown, transfer to the baking sheet.
Sprinkle powder sugar and drizzle maple syrup as desired.
