A delicious, healthy, easy, and custardy vegan French toast from Isa Chandra Moskowitz's new cookbook, "Vegan Brunch". Recipe is very low effort but requires 30 minutes soaking time. TIP: These french toast recipes call for stale bread because it’s going to be soaking up custard, but you still want the bread to hold its shape. Fresh bread will get mushy and, worst case scenario, fall apart. A 3 day old loaf should be just fine and 5 days old might be too late (make it into breadcrumbs instead.) If you have only a fresh baguette, toast slices at 300°F oven for about 10 minutes, until they are hardened a bit but not toasted.
