Mistakes to avoid while making this classic french toast
- Don’t burn your butter. Butter burns quickly and in order to get a good and delicious french toast, one needs to understand when exactly to place the bread on the pan. If you’re not experienced with this, use one teaspoon of neutral oil to get the perfect texture and taste.
- Use the right amount of heat. We are frying the french toast, so, your pan needs to be properly heated up and the heat supplied should not be too much or too less. Try to keep the flame at medium and alternate between low and medium only. If you are using an induction, try to keep the heat at a balanced number.
- Be careful while soaking the bread. Do not hurry and don’t over-do it. If you hurry, your bread won’t really soak in the flavor and if you let it soak a lot, your bread will crumble and dissolve.
