Is It Possible to Substitute Vanilla Extract in French Toast?
You can use vanilla bean paste instead of vanilla extract in a 1:1 ratio, or you can use twice the amount of maple syrup as vanilla extract. These substitutes work well in pancakes, French toast, waffles,blondies, and oatmeal cookies.
Why Isn’t My French Toast Fluffy?
If you use a slice of bread that is too thin, flimsy, or fresh, your French toast will become soggy. Other possible causes include using too much milk or skim milk in the custard, and soaking the bread for too long. Also, French toast will become soggy if it is fried at an excessively high temperature, searing the outside but leaving the center underdone.
What Is the Best French Toast Bread?
Brioche, sourdough,challah, or even French bread are the best breads for French toast, but any bread can be used.
