Recipe Ingredients for French Toast with Maple Syrup


For the Syrup:
1/2 cup pure maple syrup
1/4 cup pecans, lightly toasted and coarsely chopped
2 teaspoons orange juice or fresh lemon juice

For the French Toast:
8 slices whole wheat bread
6 tablespoons unsalted butter
1 cup milk
1 large egg
2 tablespoons sugar
2 teaspoons imitation vanilla
3/4 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup flour

Recipe Directions for French Toast with Maple Syrup

  1. Directions

  2. For the Syrup:

  3. In a small saucepan, bring maple syrup and pecans to a boil and stir in juice. Remove syrup from heat; cover and keep warm.

  4. For the French Toast:

  5. Preheat oven to 200 degrees F. Arrange the bread on a wire rack set over a baking sheet and bake until slightly dry, about 15 minutes.

  6. While the bread is in the oven, melt 2 tablespoons of the butter and whisk it together with the milk, egg, sugar, vanilla, cinnamon and salt in a medium bowl. Slowly whisk in the flour until smooth. Pour the batter into a large shallow dish.

  7. Transfer 2 pieces of the bread from the oven into the batter and soak both sides. Meanwhile, melt 1 more tablespoon of the butter in a 12-inch nonstick skillet over medium heat until it begins to brown, swirling to coat the pan. Remove the bread from the batter, allowing excess to drip back into the dish and lay in the hot skillet. Cook until golden brown on both sides, about 2 1/2 minutes per side. Transfer the French toast to the wire rack and keep warm in the oven. Repeat with the remaining ingredients.
