To make french toast, first cut the multigrain french bread into 6 thick slices.
Measure ingredients needed to cook the french toast.
Place the 2 eggs in a big shallow bowl.
Add the milk.
Then add the ground cinnamon and salt.
Next add the brown sugar.
Followed by vanilla extract.
Whisk everything together.
Dip each slice of thick french bread into the egg mixture.
Soak the bread on both sides. Make sure that the bread is completely soaked.
Soak all the 6 slices of bread and drained.
Place all the soaked slices of bread on a plate.
Preheat oven to 200 degree C (400 degree F)
Melt butter in a frying pan over medium heat.
Working in batches, brown the bread very lightly until golden brown. Sauté for about 3 minutes, just to kind of seal the egg batter.
Flip over and brown for another 3 minutes until it's beautiful and golden colour.
Transfer the golden brown slices of french bread to a baking sheet.
Then bake in the preheated oven for 12 to 15 minutes to finish the cooking. The bread will puff slightly and will be crispy on the outside while the inside will be incredibly moist and soft.
Keep the french toast warm in the oven over low temperature if not eaten right away.
The baking cooks the custard inside the bread and gives it an unbelievable texture. The outside on the other hand is crispy and golden. This gives a truly amazing french toast experience.
And you're done! Serve hot with butter.
Or garnish with some blueberries. So Enjoy!
