TGIF: classic weekend vanilla-and-cinnamon French Toast

Here at Good Living, we like to mark the end of the working week with a TGIF recipe… A little note of indulgence with which to treat yourself over the weekend, hopefully catching your breath as you cook, bake or mix something that’s a tiny celebration.

When you’re looking for a weekend-worthy treat without the effort, French Toast is always a winner – as John Kanell of the Preppy Kitchen YouTube channel is happy to demonstrate in this video.

French Toast is easy and quick to whip up, delicious and appropriately decadent – especially given the endless toppings with which to tailor it to everyone’s preference. There’s a reason it’s a perennial hit with kids!

This recipe soaks the bread slices in a rich egg custard, flavoured with vanilla and cinnamon, then pan-fries them in generous dollops of butter. This leaves the slices soft and fluffy on the inside, yet golden and crisp on the outside.

Drizzle them with maple syrup – or other sweet topping of your choice – add fresh berries, and you’re ready to savour your brunch-alicious treat. Enjoy!
