Sometimes the simple things can seem the most indulgent. Such is the case with French toast--delectably battered and lightly fried slices of bread, dripping in maple syrup, served with a side of fresh fruit and a warm mug of coffee. It's the kind of meal that could just as well come from a fancy restaurant brunch, but can seem like even more of a treat when enjoyed in your own fuzzy slippers. Lucky for you, it's easy to learn how to make French toast.
