And I was right, these slices turned out really good. There is a depth of flavor with a mild tang that you can get only by using buttermilk. This was Sunday breakfast for us and we thoroughly enjoyed it. I stuck to the recipe for most of it, except I used regular sliced bread instead of the challah bread and I left out the ground cinnamon, not because I have anything against it, but because I forgot to pick it up at the store :( Despite that, the French Toast was fantastic and I'm sure I'll be making this yummy breakfast treat often. 'Thanks Kate, for a delicious take on one of my favorite breakfast treats. I know I'll be back to try out more of the treats on your blog'.
Buttermilk French Toast
(Yields 8-10 slices)
1 cup buttermilk, shaken well
2 tsp sugar
A pinch of salt
1 tsp vanilla essence
8-10 slices of bread
A little butter for frying
Beat the buttermilk, eggs, salt, sugar and essence well to combine.
Heat a skillet or griddle.
Dip the slices of bread in the batter one at a time, letting it soak in some of the batter and flip the slice over to repeat on the other side. Take care to not leave the slice in the batter for too long, else it will get too soggy and break apart when you try to get it to the pan.
Butter the griddle lightly for frying.
Carefully, place the slice onto the pan and cook until lightly browned (or to your liking) on both sides.
Drizzle some honey over it and enjoy.
