This Buttermilk French Toast topped with Peach Syrup is a main dish worthy of a fancy Bed and Breakfast but is really simple to prepare.
This Stuffed French Toast is our annual Christmas breakfast. And these Buttermilk Pancakes are the absolute best pancakes I’ve ever made (numerous Pinterest users agree with me). A stuffed french toast is a little too indulgent sometimes. But I’ve never really been a fan of regular french toast. I wondered if buttermilk in french toast batter would change my mind. And I was right. There’s something about the tang and richness of the buttermilk. It really elevates the taste and texture of this otherwise simple recipe. I know you’ll love this Buttermilk French Toast.
How to Make Buttermilk French Toast
Whisk together the buttermilk, eggs, sugar and vanilla. Heat a non-stick skillet over medium heat. Melt some butter in it. Dip both sides of your bread slices in the buttermilk batter. Cook in the skillet until both sides of the french toast are browned. And the middle is starting to puff up. Repeat the process until you have enough slices of french toast to serve. To keep your french toast warm, place a casserole dish in a 250 degree F oven. Place the french toast slices in the warm casserole dish until ready to serve.
What to serve with Buttermilk French Toast
- Use a really good quality, full-fat buttermilk for this french toast.
- I used sliced brioche bread when I made this recipe to photograph.
- Reduce the heat to medium low if you are cooking on a gas stove. You want the middle of the toast to cook without burning the outsides.
- Large, non-stick skillet for cooking for french toast.
- This electric griddle is also great for french toast and pancakes.
