- 1 baguette of stale bread
- 3 tbsp. tablespoon powdered sugar (or brown sugar)
- 2 glasses of milk
- 1 whole egg
- 1 egg yolk
- 1 jar strawberry, cherry or apricot jam
- 100g butter
- 1 C. teaspoon natural vanilla flavor
- 1 C. cinnamon (optional)
- Preparation15 mins
- Cooking25 mins
- 1.Preheat the oven to 195°C (th.6). Butter a 24cm springform pan. Cut the baguette into 1 cm thick slices. Generously butter one side of the bread slices. Arrange them in the buttered mold to completely line the bottom. Then cover each slice of bread with a small teaspoon of the jam of your choice.
- 2.In a bowl, pour the milk and natural vanilla flavoring. Add the powdered sugar, whole egg and egg yolk. Mix to obtain a homogeneous paste. Pour the mixture into the springform pan to dip the bread.
- 3.Bake for around 25 mins. When the French toast gets a nice amber color, take the dish out of the oven. You can eat this French toast in the oven warm or cold, coat it with a little liquid caramel or sprinkle it with toasted slivered almonds. You can also accompany it with some fruit or a nice scoop of vanilla ice cream.
Make sure your slices are soaked enough in the milk and egg mixture to guarantee the moistness of this tasty French toast in the oven.
