Bourbon Peach Vanilla Spiced French Toast Recipe Tips and Notes

What Type of Bread to Use for French Toast?

You want an unsliced sturdy loaf to make french toast. Reason being, whichever bread you choose needs to withstand soaking up the egg and milk mixture without falling apart. I would go with a Brioche loaf, however, these can be hard to find unsliced in your local grocery store. Some other alternatives would be loaf of challah, Pullman or Wonder sandwich bread or french bread – unsliced so you can cut the slices as thick as you’d like.

Do You Use Butter or Oil for French Toast?

When ready to add your french toast to the hot skillet, use a combination of a neutral oil and butter. This helps with preventing the butter from burning, and helps to get the crisp golden edges we all want. Be sure to wipe out all browned and burnt bits from the pan/skillet after every batch.

How to Make Bourbon Peach Syrup

This has to be the easiest part of the recipe! All you need are fresh peaches, brown and granulated white sugar, a good quality bourbon, and water. These simple ingredients combined with heat make a yummy syrup, perfect for this french toast recipe!

How to Make Bourbon Peach Vanilla Spiced French Toast

Make Bourbon Peach Syrup – in a small saucepan over high heat, bring brown sugar, granulated white sugar, bourbon and water to a boil. Add peaches, reduce heat to medium high for 2-3 minutes, stirring occasionally then reduce to medium heat or until there’s a gentle bubble. Allow liquid to reduce to a syrup-like consistency, around 5-6 minutes, or longer. Remove from heat, and allow to cool. As the syrup cools, it will also become thicker in consistency.

Egg Wash – in a large shallow bowl, whisk together milk, eggs, cinnamon, nutmeg, salt, vanilla, and brown sugar until very well combined. Working in batches, dip slices of bread into the egg mixture for roughly 20 seconds each side – ensure to flip only once.

Fry – in a large skillet or pan, melt butter and add oil. Add dipped slices of bread to pan and fry until golden brown on both sides and cooked though, remove and set aside.

Serve – drizzle french toast slices with bourbon peach syrup, top with bourbon infused peach slices, and a sprinkle of confectioners/powdered sugar, enjoy!
