When I told one of my favorite people at the office that I was working on a recipe for French toast, he looked at me incredulously. Without an ounce of meanness he asked, “Do people not know how to make French toast?”
After escaping the spiral of self-doubt that naturally followed, I decided that even if you roughly know how to make French toast, there may be a few things you can learn from my recipe. And if you don’t have a recipe? Well, now I’ve got you covered there, too.
I started with this Deluxe Cinnamon French Toast from cookbook author Lisa Yockelson that I had originally tested more than three years ago. I remember loving its crunchy exterior, but I wanted to streamline the recipe a bit.
