The French toast is hard to beat. After all, it’s one of the most popular bready, cinnamony and sweet breakfast items on the planet! And although the recipe for this famous dish has changed little in ages, it’s time to give it a twist.
This is our recipe for double dip French toast, and you’ll be amazed by how easy it is to turn regular French toast into a super trendy and Instagrammable breakfast! Here’s all you need to know!
A double dip French toast is actually just regular French toast, at least at first. What happens next is the fun part. We’re dipping the finished French toast in the infamous egg and milk mixture to give it a second coating of creamy and soft crust. How cool is that?
For this recipe, we need eggs, whole milk, cinnamon and vanilla. This will be our dipping batter, and it’s just perfect. The rest is butter for cooking the toast and bread, of course. Get yourself some nice, sliced artisan bread. The thicker the slices, the better!
To give this unique dish a proper stage, let’s garnish it with whipped cream and drizzle them with chocolate sauce or a more traditional maple syrup. The sky’s the limit!
Go crazy with this one because it’s not regular French toast; it’s supposed to be over the top! And that’s why we love it. Let’s head on into the kitchen and double dip some French toast!
In a mixing bowl, whisk the eggs and tip in the milk and vanilla extract. Set aside.
Heat a skillet over medium heat and melt the butter.
Coat one bread slice at a time in the egg mixture and cook in the skillet until golden for 2-3 minutes. Flip and cook on the other side for 2-3 more minutes.
Let the French toast cool down until manageable and coat them in the egg mixture a second time.
Add more butter to the skillet if needed and cook the French toast on both sides; this time, 1-2 minutes will be enough.
Alternatively, dip the French toast and coat it with Graham cracker crumble the second time before cooking for crunchier doubly dip French toast.
Drizzle with maple syrup or dust with brown sugar and cinnamon. Enjoy right away!
