We decided to take French toast to new places, and this is what we came up with. It's a recipe worth waking up for.
1 cup packed light brown sugar
1⁄2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, melted
1 1⁄2 cups whole milk
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 teaspoon freshly squeezed lemon juice
3⁄4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
Pinch cayenne pepper
12 slices whole wheat, challah, or French bread
Preheat oven to 375°F. In a bowl, whisk together the sugar and melted butter. Spread the mixture in a large rimmed baking pan. Set aside.
In a large bowl, whisk together the milk, eggs, vanilla, lemon juice, cinnamon, salt, and cayenne pepper. Dip each slice of bread in the egg mixture and soak for 30 seconds. Transfer to the baking pan. Bake about 25 minutes or until golden, turning halfway through baking.
