This classic recipe for French Toast uses sourdough bread in place of traditional white bread. Sourdough bread is generally a heartier bread and also has a full, almost tart flavor without all the added sugar of regular bread. And when made as part of a great French Toast recipe, it doesn’t get any better than this.
Almost all supermarket bakery sections will have fresh sourdough bread. They are usually in round loaves and come sliced, or you can have it sliced on the spot. It’s an absolutely delicious bread and when it comes fresh from the bakery, it doesn’t contain all the preservatives and other ingredients commonly found in commercial breads. This makes it even more perfect for this french toast recipe.
Using 100% pure maple syrup with this French Toast is a must. The true sweetness of the pure maple syrup goes perfectly with the sourdough bread to create the perfect combination of flavors that you will absolutely love!
