3/4-inch slices, 4, of castling (Italian crusty bread)
2 tablespoons vegetable oil for frying
You can turn French toast into a really fancy breakfast by topping it with poached fruits, a dollop of whipped cream and a drizzle of honey.
Mix the sugar with the cinnamon in a small bowl.
Combine the eggs and the milk in a medium mixing bowl and whisk them together well.
Dunk the bread slices into the egg mixture, 2 at a time, and let them soak for about a minute on each side.
While the bread is soaking, ask a grown-up to help you heat 1 tablespoon of the oil in a frying pan over a medium–high heat. Using tongs, lift the bread out of the egg mixture and place them in the frying pan. It’s a good idea to wear oven mitts while you do this to protect you from any splashes of hot oil.
Reduce the heat to low–medium and cook for 2 to 3 minutes on each side. To test that the French toast is cooked, press down on it with an egg flip to check that no runny egg comes out.
Ask a grown-up to help you lift the French toast onto a warm serving platter and sprinkle over some of the cinnamon sugar. Repeat with the remaining slices of bread and serve immediately.
