How Do I Make Sure My French Toast Isn’t Soggy?

To ensure a fluffy piece of French Toast with a crispy outside, ensure that the temperature of your pan or griddle is not too hot. This will color your French Toast fast and reduce the cook time leaving you with a soggy piece of French Toast.

French Toast is best served hot off the griddle, it’ll become more soggy the longer it sits out before enjoying. If you can, enjoy your French Toast when it’s hot that’s wonderful. Otherwise, you can keep them warm in the oven and then set them on broil for a few minutes to crisp them up a bit more before serving.

Ingredients

  • 2 cups milk

  • 2 eggs

  • 2 tsp. vanilla extract

  • 1 tsp. cinnamon

  • 1/4 tsp. salt

  • 10-12 slices thick brioche bread

  • 1 cup chocolate hazelnut spread

  • 3-5 Tbsp. unsalted butter

Directions

  • In a medium-sized bowl, whisk together the milk, eggs, vanilla extract, cinnamon, and salt. Set aside.
  • Use festive cookie cutters to cut your brioche bread into fun shapes. Pipe a thin layer of chocolate hazelnut spread on top of one slice of bread. Pipe the spread in the center of the bread, not to the edge or it will seep out of the sides too much.
  • Top off the slice of bread with piped hazelnut spread with another piece of bread cut out in the same shape. Repeat these steps until all of the bread is used up.
  • Place the stuffed French Toast in the freezer for 15 minutes. In the meantime, prepare your pan or griddle with melted butter. The griddle should be on medium heat.
  • Dip each piece of French Toast in the milk and egg mixture then place right on the heated griddle.
  • Cook on each side for 5-6 minutes or until they’re nice and crispy and golden brown.
  • Top with confectioner’s sugar, more chocolate hazelnut spread, whipped cream, etc! Enjoy!!
