My dear Sourdoughmaniacs,
Having left over sourdough bread which turned a bit dry? Hard to imagine, I know (is that even possible, you may ask), but I tell you …
I have just the thing needed to fix it: the recipe for sourdough French toast.
For 4 very hungry rumbling bellies you’ll need:
🍞12 pieces of 1- or 2-days old sourdough bread (ideally white, half-white or mixed)
🥚 3 whole eggs
🥛 200 g milk
🧂 4 pinches of salt
🥄1 teaspoon of vanilla extract (for sweet French toast)
To bake with: a bit of butter or oil
- In a bowl whisk the eggs, salt, and milk until thoroughly combined. If you are making sweet French toast, add in the vanilla extract as well.
- Dip the bread into the batter twice for the best result, especially if it is already a bit older and dryer.
- Then slowly fry the soaked slices on both sides on a medium high heat in a well oiled or buttered skillet.
- The toast is ready when it is wonderfully golden brown.
- After baking, let the French toast slices rest on a paper towel for a few seconds to soak up excess oil.
- Serve the toast slices hot and without any toppings if you are going for a savory option.
If you enjoy them sweet, dust them with powdered sugar and top with seasonal fruits, jam, butter, whipped cream, or spread of choice.
Yours truly fermented,
