Make your French toast more decadent by adding one ingredient: heavy cream

0 6

The beauty of French toast is that you can eyeball the ratios. All you need to do is add some cream to beaten eggs and vanilla to create a mixture that’s loose enough for the bread to soak up quickly. Over-soak flimsy slices in a runny mixture and they’ll be too soft to handle, which will create a mushy center instead of a tender-bellied middle. Conversely, immerse doorstop-sized slices in a stiff blend of cream and eggs and the bread won’t soak up the custard at speed. The key is to give the bread just enough time for the batter to penetrate the middle to elicit that perfect custardy texture. As mentioned, you don’t need to substitute all the milk for cream. You’ll still be able to add richness to your basic custard with a small splash of heavy cream incorporated into the milk. If you prefer a custard that has a firmer end result, add more eggs.

Why not dust your French toast in confectioner’s sugar and serve alongside raspberry conserve for a fancier and faster version of a jelly doughnut? Another delicious move is to sprinkle cinnamon over your slices to lend them a warming spicy aroma and a touch of golden color. Or go all in and double-up the decadence with Nutella French toast with added cream. You could even give your French toast a savory twist by switching vanilla extract for dried herbs and chili flakes.
