We prepare some fluid custard so that the bread soaks them well. We heat the milk with the sugar, the two eggs (previously beaten) and the vanilla essence. We remove at the time that the mixture cooks, which should not come to a boil. It should not exceed 65ºC or the mixture will be cut.

We cover the base of a source with a layer of the custard and place the slices of bread on top. Cover with the rest of the custard and prick the entire surface with a fork to help soak well. Let stand for a couple of hours, minimum, turning in the middle of the process and clicking again.

We prepare a frying pan with plenty of oil, checking that it does not get too hot during frying. The ideal temperature is 180ºC, the French toast is perfect and absorbs less oil. We take each slice of bread, go through beaten egg and fry on both sides until golden.

Once ready, let it rest on absorbent paper for a couple of minutes. We remove the egg burrs that are attached to the French toast before going through a mixture of sugar and ground cinnamon (optional) and serve.

What to accompany the custard torrijas

Custard torrijas hold up well for a couple of days, in the fridge, but the best time to enjoy them is freshly made. The sweetness and creaminess of its interior disappear with the hours, although they are still rich. They are a great snack, accompanied by a glass of fresh milk.
