We have had many requests for our recipe of Armer Ritter, Pain Perdu, or better known here as French Toast. Since Pecco Beaufaÿs hails a trained chef from the Sacher Hotel,
, he doesn’t really go by
any recipe; he eyeballs the ingredients to find the correct proportions;
however, the mixture is virtually idiot-proof! Vienna, Austria
First, begin with wonderful soft and tasty bread such as Raisin Pecan, Challah, or airy French bread. Create a cream mixture of eggs, heavy cream, cinnamon-sugar, a splash of vanilla and a jigger of orange juice. Pour over the bread and let it absorb into the bread. Then, fry the bread slices up in a pan with unsalted butter until golden colored. Serve immediately besprinkled with confectionary sugar and doused with Maple syrup.
For four servings: 4 eggs, one cup of cream, and a dash of the other ingredients.
Guten Appetit! Bon appétit! Enjoy!
