I am a sucker for French Toast. Absolutely love it! I am also a sucker for caramel. So, imagine my delight when this recipe for Caramel Crusted French Toast was delivered to my inbox on Wednesday! I couldn't wait for the weekend to come so that I could pull out the griddle and whip up a batch of caramel crusted french toast.
Caramel Crusted French Toast
(Adapted from Framed)
1 stick of butter
7 tablespoons brown sugar
1 cup milk
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
1 1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
12 pieces of french bread (cut 1-inch thick)
In a small bowl, combine butter and brown sugar until completely mixed. Whisk milk, eggs, vanilla, cinnamon, and nutmeg until combined. Dip slices of bread into egg mixture - covering each side. Spread one side of the bread with the butter/sugar mixture. Place on a griddle butter/sugar side down. Cook until bottom is golden brown. Repeat with the other side of the bread. Serve with or without maple syrup.
The result: amazing! So good! A treat in itself! Take the time to make this, you will not be disappointed. I promise.
