French toast is one of those decadent weekend breakfast dishes from my childhood. My parents used to make us French toast when we didn’t quite make it through the loaf of bread that week and it was starting to go stale.
These days I’m more likely to have French toast when I’m out for a weekend brunch with friends and I’m finding the stuff they are serving in some of Canberra’s cafes is a definitely a step up from the humble lemon and sugar French toast that we used to have at home.
This week I am looking for Canberra’s best French toast. This delicious eggy bread phenomenon comes in many forms. Some people have it savoury, others like it sweet. Sometimes it’s made with a fancier bread like brioche or even croissants. For me, it’s always been sweet and all about the topping – whether it comes with strawberries, caramelised banana or maybe even bacon on the side, in my opinion, it should always be drowned in maple syrup.
So tell me Canberra – who makes the best French toast in town?
To vote, let me know who serves up Canberra’s best French toast in the comments below. I’ll try the two most popular places and let you know the verdict in next Monday’s Taste Off article.
