SoupedUp’s French Toast

With French Toast Day coming up on the 28th November (there really does seem to be a day for everything now) we thought it would be a great time to put up a SoupedUp recipe for this all-time breakfast favourite. French toast is one of those meals that, at its core, is incredibly simple, yet still has plenty of room for complexity and variation. It has a long history that actually predates the French Pain Perdu (or ‘lost bread’, reflecting its use of stale or otherwise ‘lost’ bread) and a meal very much like it, simply called aliter dulcia (or ‘another sweet dish’) found in the oldest known cookbook Apiciusdated around 100 AD. Though the recipe has undoubtedly changed since the Apicius was compiled, one thing does remain unchanged; it is still delicious.

For a perfect pairing with a breakfast of French toast, try it with a delicious compote of stewed apple and cinnamon.
