Ok, your brunch dreams are about to come true with THE best Vegan French Toast ever! It's soft, sweet, fluffy, vanilla scented, golden perfection & all you need are a few simple ingredients & around 15 minutes of your time.
*choose a neutral tasting milk. Almond milk has a really strong flavour and doesn't work well in this recipe. If you use sweetened milk omit the sugar or use a little less. I like to use cashew milk or soy milk.
**extra firm tofu works best. Firm will be ok if that's all you have. Medium and soft are not advised.
***cane sugar is best, turbinado sugar is 2nd best. Do not use brown sugar or coconut sugar. Maple syrup is ok but best results and better colour come from using sugar.
****the butter is optional but recommended. It makes it slightly richer in flavour and helps with the browning.
*****for the best results the bread you use must be a rustic, crusty white loaf that is slightly stale. Soft sandwich bread does not yield good results, nor does really fresh bread.
Leftover 'custard' will keep in a sealed container in the fridge for 3-4 days. It does thicken up and go a little jelly like. Just add a little milk, put the lid on and give it a good shake or a quick whisk until it's smooth again and the consistency it was originally. Then use again as before.
