I know you can make it; my aunt used to do that. The recipe said 1 small bag of vanilla sugar, so I was curious. Also wondering how much is in 1 small bag and whether the amount in a French bag is the same as one you'd find here in the U.S.

Vanilla extract would do the trick for sure. But I don't know about the quantities... If you try it please tell me what proportions you used ;)

Usually a bag is 5 to 7g I think...

bread, recipe, sweet

Sweet "Pain Perdu" aka French Toast! Imagine that : Your kids just came back from what can be called a crappy day. But Mommy or Daddy (come on dads cook ! ) can fix this up with a big shiny pile of delicious FRENCH TOAST ( Pain Perdu )... You will make their day and your evening too lol... Ingredients --------------- - 4 thick slices of stale bread ( hard and dry ) NB : That is why it is called in France "Pain Perdu" (translation : Lost Bread) , because otherwise, you would have to trash it. - 1 egg - 1/2 cup of Milk - 2 TBSP of white sugar - 2 TBSP of brown sugar ( for the caramelization) - 1 small bag of vanilla sugar (actually I used half of it but what if you loooove vanilla ?) Cookware ------------- - mixing bowl - frying pan - wire whip Instructions --------------- - In the mixing bowl, add the milk and the white sugar, mix well - Add the vanilla sugar, and one egg - Whip it till smooth - Really soak up the bread in this liquid - The bread will absorb everything (normally) - Frying pan over medium low - 10 minutes lay in - Turn them over a few times, till they go just under golden brown - Sprinkle both sides with brown sugar to caramelize - Let it cook 30 s - 1 minute, turning over the slices - Done, time to eat ! Hope you like it ! If you do I am happy ( I am really simple am I not ? ) Kisses Gab 3 stars 1 reviews
