"wonderful twist on french toast! The syrup is in the toast :-)"
bakery white bread, sliced to 1 inch thickness
real maple syrup
unsalted butter, for cooking
fresh berries, for serving
confectioners' sugar, for dusting
First allow your sliced bread to sit at room temperature for approximately 1 hour to allow the surfaces to dry out.
In a wide bowl, beat your eggs with your maple syrup until the mixture is slightly thickened.
Beat in the milk, vanilla, nutmeg and salt.
Place your bread slices in the mixture and allow them to soak in the mixture for approximately 5 minutes until saturated well.
Next you will want to preheat your skillet over medium heat and add 2 Tablespoons of butter.
Once your butter has melted reduce your heat to medium-low and saute bread slices for about 5-6 minutes per side, making sure that you flip each slice over every 2 minutes or so to make sure that they brown evenly.
You may have to cook in 2 batches if you use a smaller skillet.
Sprinkle with confectioners' sugar, and place random berries around the plate for a nice look and tasty meal.
