French Toast with an Unexpected Dimension
Custardy bread and warm cinnamon get the low and slow treatment in this brilliant recipe from Katie Sullivan Morford's new book, Rise and Shine—and the results are so tasty, you may never go back to the stovetop way again. It starts with cubes of crusty bread sprinkled with a handful of golden raisins, which gives the finished dish more texture and interest than the usual slices. A flavored mixture of milk and eggs goes in next, then you cook the toast for two hours, or so, until the egg is firm and the bread is a little crisp around the edges. It's delicious with yogurt, fruit or a drizzle of syrup.
