-Stale Bread -Eggs -Milk -Vanilla Extract -Cinnamon
-Salt -Butter -Cooking Oil -Sugar
Whisk the eggs, milk, vanilla, cinnamon, and a pinch of salt until they run in an uninterrupted line through the tines of a fork.
Warm a non-stick pan over medium-low heat. Add butter and cooking oil. Heat until the butter foams.
Dip the slices of bread in the batter, ensuring both sides are covered. The amount of time the bread should be left in the batter depends on the type of bread used and the staleness of the bread. The slice should feel like a wet sponge but not a soaking wet sponge.
Place slices in the pan and sprinkle a pinch of sugar over the top. Cook until the slice has browned on the bottom. Flip and sprinkle a pinch of sugar over the browned top.
When you press your finger in the slice’s center, and it springs back, turn it over again and cook briefly to caramelize the sugar. Repeat for all slices, adding more oil and butter as needed. If you’re making a big batch, keep the slices warm in a 200°F oven.
