How to make it

  • To prepare French toast: Whisk together egg, egg whites, milk, 2 tablespoons sugar, vanilla, 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon and baking powder in a medium bowl until well blended. Place bread slices in a large, shallow baking dish and pour egg mixture over the top; turn to coat evenly. Press a piece of wax paper directly on the bread to cover it, then cover dish with plastic wrap. Refrigerate overnight.
  • To make cinnamon syrup: Stir together 1/2 cup sugar, corn syrup, 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon and water in a small saucepan. Bring the mixture to a boil over medium-high heat, stirring constantly. Boil for 2 minutes. Remove from heat and stir in evaporated milk. Let cool; transfer to a small pitcher.
  • To cook French toast: Heat 1 teaspoon oil and 1/2 teaspoon butter in a 12-inch nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add four of the soaked bread slices to the pan and cook until golden on both sides, 2 to 3 minutes per side. Transfer the toast to a platter and keep warm in a warm oven. Cook the remaining slices in the same manner, using the remaining 1 teaspoon oil and 1/2 teaspoon butter. Serve with cinnamon syrup.

    I have made French toast (the French call this "Lost Bread)")in a manner.
    I use 2 inch slices from French bread, which I let dry out completely. I then soak it in an egg solution of egg, cream, a very little sugar, cinnamon, and a very little nutmeg, over night.
    I turn it once to make sure it is soaked through.
    In the morning I bake it in a 350 degree oven until cooked though.
    Then it is toasted in butter until golden brown. The center tastes like custard, which in truth is what it is.

    Don't really need that baking powder. It's such a small amount I made enough overnight french toast ( some with - others without b.p ) and no noticeable difference either way

    Just my personal experience and opinion!

    Recipe looks very nice, esp the cinnmaon syrup!

    I remember my father making French toast once and he let the bread soak for about an hour before he made it. After it was cooked and we started eating it, it was SO HOT in the center that we had to wait a long time to eat it, so if you try this, I'd be cautious. Peg
