I've just had this for breakfast so it seems very a propos to make it my Sweet Sunday spotlight! For me, bread is key to the making of good French toast. It needs to be slightly crispified (or stale). Mix the milk with eggs, put in a drop or two of vanilla extract alongside a generous sprinkling of cinnamon, then heat some butter in a pan and fry it up til it's golden!
Smother it all in rivers of glutinous maple syrup, and if you really want to be posh you can throw in a berry or two.
Could getting to paradise be any easier?
