All Hail Weekend Vibes
You know that feeling you get when your eyes open and realize its the weekend? You breathe a sigh of relief because you know you can actually luxuriate in a leisurely breakfast. Going out is always fun, or you can use that extra time in the morning to make something special at home. I try to be more aware of eating healthy during the week and give myself some more leeway on the weekend, so I’m always planning weekend breakfasts in advance. When I tried the sourdough bread from Lilou Artisan Patisserie, there was no turning back. Sourdough is one of my favorite breads ever, with its distinctive tang and crustiness. Although there are many baked goods that I’ll happily attempt to make at home, I haven’t worked up the nerve yet to make sourdough starter. Maybe one day! For now, I’ll happily purchase my sourdough bread- and make sourdough french toast out of it.
You got french toast, and then you have this.
I have my standard french toast recipes. You know the ones- whisk together some egg, milk or heavy cream, vanilla, a pinch of cinnamon and go from there. Always yummy but not standout quality. That is, until two that I experimented with very recently. One is the recipe I’m posting here for sourdough french toast with an ingredient I’ve never used before- flour! Flour made the french toast fluffy and perfectly battered to get that perfect hotel breakfast feel. I mean you have to trust 2k good reviews on allrecipes right? The other restaurant quality french toast is coming soon to this blog, using homemade brioche bread- unbelievably easy when you follow a recipe from this gem. Scroll down to the bottom of this page and enter your email you don’t miss a single recipe, but first get on the floured french toast wagon because I’m telling you, it’s a good one!
Sourdough French Toast
