I wasn't sure what to expect from this one, but it seemed easy enough and I had all of the ingredients on hand, so I was happy to give it a go. One thing I never understand about French toast recipes--and this one is no exception--is why they suggest that the bread be soaked for such a short amount of time. Maybe my bread is harder than most people's (isn't the point to use stale bread?), but I never get enough flavor or the consistency that I like unless I soak for a while. For some reason, though, when making this I followed the recipe instead of trusting my instincts. The result? I absolutely love the custard layer, but think the bread part is only "ok". It is a little hard and doesn't have quite enough flavor for my taste. However, custard is one of my all-time favorite foods, so I've definitely been enjoying this one. This is an incredibly exciting time in my life, but also a huge, scary, transition into the unknown, and for me custard is the ultimate comfort food.
