You’ll see stores displaying these tasty little (and not so little) panettone cakes around the front entrances of the grocery store. When I see these in my local grocery store, it serves as the perfect reminder that the holiday season is upon us.
Yes, I live in Houston and it’s 80 degrees outside. So I am thankful for these little food-inspired reminders that Thanksgiving is near and soon after that, Christmas!
Here are a few tips for making French toast:
- Don’t add too much dairy to the egg mixture. Too much dairy, and the egg mixture won’t cook; leaving you with a wet and soggy bread. French toast should be dry on the surface with slightly crisp edges.
- Choose the right bread. The ideal thickness is 3/4″ to 1″inch thick. Good options are Brioche, challah and of course Panettone!
- Soak the bread. The bread needs to soak in the egg mixture. This will help give the bread a soft and custard-like center. 15 to 30 minutes is good.
