I am not the biggest fan of French toast.  I have said this before.  But I’ve gone and made French toast again because I made too many muffins and I couldn’t finish them all and they were starting to get stale.  I can totally eat stale muffins, it’s not a big deal, but they kind of crumble annoyingly.  What do?  Make French toast.

And…I rather liked it.  So I have to consider what it is about French toast that I don’t like.  I think it’s because I don’t like really eggy tasting custards, things like flan and egg tarts.  And if you think about traditional French toast, the inside of the French toast is supposed to be kind of an eggy custard with cinnamon and nutmeg.  It’s almost just like an egg tart.  Gross.

But when you make French toast out of muffins or persimmon nut bread, you have some other flavor besides egg and cinnamon and/or nutmeg.  The texture seems kind of different too.  Also, I use soy milk in my batter.  Not so much because I really like soy milk (I do, but I only drink Asian fresh soy milk) but because I normally have it on hand.  It has a longer shelf life so I can keep it around longer for cereal.  It’s hard for me to finish a thing of milk.

Thus, I conclude that I like French toast but only French toast made from muffins or other quick breads and possibly with soy milk instead of normal milk.  Btw, one egg and maybe 0.5-0.75 c of soy milk with some cinnamon is enough batter for two standard muffins.
