Chocolate French Toast (pain perdu)
- • 1/2 cup heavy cream
- • 1/2 cup milk
- • 2 tablespoons sugar
- • 1/4 cup butter, divided
- • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- • pinch kosher salt
- • 1/2 cup semisweet chocolate chips or chopped chocolate
- • 2 eggs
- • 6 slices white bread, crusts removed and cut into triangles
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.
Bake until the custard sets and the bread turns golden at the edges, about 30 minutes.
Add the remaining cream to a chilled bowl and whisk until soft peaks form. Serve the French toast on individual plates with a dollop of cream.
