Add ½ tsp. cinnamon and ½ tsp. salt. Pour in 80 g (½ cup) condensed milk (or a combination: 50 g (4 tbsp.) sugar and 50 ml (3,5 tbsp) milk) and 80 ml coffee. Stir the ingredients until the mixture becomes homogeneous. It is important that the sugar and salt are completely dissolved. Roasting toast Dip the bread in the egg and coffee mixture on both sides. Allow excess liquid to drain so that the bread is not too wet. Transfer the bread to a plate or wire rack. Melt 50 g (4 tbsp.) unsalted butter in a wide skillet. Place the bread in the pan and fry over a medium heat for 2 to 3 minutes on each side so that the toast browns evenly. Keep an eye on the frying process to ensure that the toast becomes golden but does not burn. Make sure the oil does not smoke. Preparing the cream When the toast is ready, prepare the mascarpone cream. Mix 100 g (3 ½ oz) of mascarpone cheese with 75 g (6 tbsp.) of powdered sugar. The amount of sugar can be adjusted to your taste. Add the zest and juice of half a lemon to the mascarpone and powdered sugar mixture. Mix thoroughly. Serve the toast with the mascarpone cream, garnished with berries or fruit of your choice. Combine flavors boldly and enjoy your breakfast! 🙋♂️ FAQ What type of bread works best for Coffee French Toast? Thick, sturdy bread like brioche or challah is ideal. They absorb the egg mixture well without falling apart. Can I use instant coffee for this recipe? Yes, instant coffee works fine. Just ensure it’s completely dissolved in the mixture for even flavor distribution. How can I make this recipe dairy-free? Substitute the milk with a dairy-free alternative like almond milk, soy milk, or oat milk. Is it possible to make Coffee French Toast without eggs? Yes, you can use a commercial egg replacer or a banana-based mixture as a binding agent. Can I prepare this French toast in advance? It’s best enjoyed fresh, but you can prep the egg and coffee mixture a night before and soak the bread slices in it just before cooking. What toppings go well with Coffee French Toast? Maple syrup, whipped cream, fresh fruits, or a dusting of powdered sugar pairs nicely. How do I know when the French toast is perfectly cooked? Each side should be golden brown with a slightly crisp edge, and the center should be cooked through but not dry. Can I make this French toast in an oven? Yes, you can bake it in a preheated oven at 375°F (190°C) for about 15 minutes, flipping halfway through. However, pan-frying usually offers better texture and flavor. Can I use decaf coffee instead of regular coffee? Absolutely. Decaf coffee is a great alternative for those avoiding caffeine but still wanting the coffee flavor. Is it possible to make a gluten-free version of Coffee French Toast? Yes, simply use your favorite gluten-free bread in place of regular bread. Can leftover Coffee French Toast be reheated? Yes, reheat it in a toaster oven or on a skillet over low heat to maintain its texture. How can I prevent the bread from getting too soggy? Don’t soak the bread for too long. Just a quick dip in the mixture is enough, especially if you’re using a softer bread. Can I add spices to the French toast mixture? Definitely! Cinnamon, nutmeg, or a dash of vanilla extract can enhance the flavor. 📌 Pin it!
