Honeymoon French Toast

  • SERVINGS: 2 large servings
  • BASIC-EASY
  • FAST
  • VEGETARIAN

For his hearty French toast, Jonathan Eismann uses whole-grain bread soaked in a maple syrup-infused batter; you can substitute a firm-textured white bread. Alongside, he serves fresh mango.

  1. 3 large eggs
  2. 1/2 cup milk
  3. 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  4. 1/4 cup pure maple syrup plus more, preferably warmed, for serving
  5. 1 1/2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
  6. 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  7. Six 1/2-inch-thick slices whole-grain bread
  8. 4 to 5 tablespoons unsalted butter
  9. 2 teaspoons confectioners' sugar, for garnish
  1. In a large shallow bowl, whisk together the eggs, milk, sugar, the 1/4 cup of maple syrup, the vanilla and the cinnamon until the sugar is dissolved.
  2. Soak the bread slices in the egg mixture, 1 slice at a time, for about 1 minute, then transfer to a tray or baking sheet; don't oversoak or the bread will fall apart.
  3. Melt 2 tablespoons of the butter in each of 2 large heavy skillets. Add the bread to the skillets and cook over moderately low heat, turning once, until golden brown, about 5 minutes per side; if the pans are dry when you turn the toast, swirl in a little more butter. Transfer the French toast to plates, dust with the confectioners' sugar and serve at once with the warm maple syrup.

Suggested Pairing

Turn fresh-squeezed orange juice into mimosas—if there's any leftover Champagne from the night before.
