Velvety on the inside, crisp on the outside, great French toast is like the delicious love child of bread and custard. Here's how to make it yourself.

Step 1: Mix the wet ingredients
In a shallow dish, whisk together the liquid ingredients until they're thoroughly blended.

For a different flavor, substitute two teaspoons of your favorite liqueur for the vanilla extract.

Step 2: Add the dry ingredients
Add the dry ingredients to the wet ones, and whisk them together until they're fully incorporated.

Step 3: Preheat your skillet and oven
Preheat your skillet at a moderate temperature for several minutes, and preheat your oven to 200 degrees.

Step 4: Dip the bread
Dip a piece of bread in the egg mixture for about 30 seconds per side. Placed the soaked bread on a separate plate, and repeat with the other slices.

Step 5: Cook
Melt a tablespoon of butter in your skillet, and place the bread in the pan in a single layer. Cook on each side until the bread is golden brown.

If you can't fit all your bread into the skillet, make multiple batches, adding a tablespoon of butter for each new batch.

Step 6: Warm the toast
If you're serving a crowd, you'll want to keep your already-cooked French toast warm while your new batch is cooking. Set a wire baking rack on top of a rimmed cookie sheet in the oven, and place the cooked slices of toast on top of the rack. They'll stay warm without getting soggy.

Step 7: Serve
Top your French toast with a dusting of powdered sugar, a pour of syrup, or a spoonful of your favorite jam, and enjoy!

Did You Know?
In France, French toast is called pain perdu, which means "lost bread."
