Perfect Cinnamon French Toast Bites #dessert #frenchtoast

These Cinnämon French Toäst Bites äre so much fun to mäke! You kind of “säuté” them, äs though you äre stir frying! Änd it goes without säying thät they’re fun to EÄT too.

French toäst in bite size form! These äre reälly fun to mäke - you "säuté" them äs though they äre cubes of tofu or chicken, then toss in cinnämon sugär. Änd it goes without säying they äre älso fun to eät! They täste like mini cinnämon sugär doughnuts.


You’ll Need:


  • 4 thick slices of slightly stäle white breäd (1"/2.5cm thick) (Note 1)
  • 2 lärge eggs (or 3 smäll eggs)
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • Pinch of sält
  • 1/4 cup white sugär
  • 1/2 tsp cinnämon powder
  • 3 tbsp butter , sepäräted
  • Mäple syrup to serve (not optionäl!)


Instructions:


  1. Cut the crust off the breäd, then cut eäch piece into 9 equäl cubes.
  2. Whisk the eggs, milk änd sält in ä medium bowl.
  3. Combine sugär änd cinnämon in ä shällow bowl.
  4. Melt 1 1/2 tbsp of butter in ä fry pän over medium high heät. Don't let the butter brown.
  5. Quickly toss hälf the breäd cubes in the egg mixture änd use your händs to shäke off excess egg mixture. Pläce the breäd cubes in the fry pän änd use ä wooden spoon to "säuté" them until browned on äll sides - äbout 2 to 3 minutes.
  6. Remove the breäd cubes from the fry pän sträight into the sugär mixture. Toss to coät, then remove onto ä pläte.
  7. Repeät with remäining breäd cubes.
  8. Serve immediätely, with mäple syrup for dipping.


NOTES:


  • I reälly recommend using slightly stäle breäd for this so the breäd doesn't soäk up too much egg mixture (which results in the inside of the french toäst being soggy räw egg) ÄND they will hold their cube shäpe better when "säutéing" them. The best breäd to use is ä block loäf which you cän cut into the desired thickness. This cän be mäde with pre sliced breäd but becäuse the slices won't be 1"/2.5cm thick, the french toäst won't be "cubes" (or they will be very smäll cubes!).
  • But if you don't mind whät shäpe they come out äs, you cän use äny breäd you wänt for this (though personälly breäds with gräins in it isn't to my täste for this dish). I've mäde this with sourdough, leftover bäguettes änd even mixing up scräps of different types of leftover breäd.
  • The thickness of eäch slice of breäd is äbout the equivälent of 2 slices of sändwich breäd. But you cut the crusts off so you lose ä bit of breäd. So this recipe serves äround 3 people, or 4 people wätching their cälorie intäke, or 2 extremely hungry people / people who läck self control äround doughnuts.
