Eva Longoria: Eva Longoria reveals how to make the perfect French toast

Eva Longoria has perfected her French toast recipe. The actress shows the simple preparation on Instagram and surprises not only with a secret ingredient, but also with a top-class topping.

Crispy on the outside, fluffy on the inside and lots of cinnamon and sugar on top: that’s how we love our French toast. Actress and “Desperate Housewives” star Eva Longoria, 46, has now revealed her private recipe for the heavenly breakfast.

French toast: Bye, bye milk! Eva Longoria relies on a secret ingredient

“Today we’re making French toast because it’s my daughter’s favorite breakfast. It’s also my favorite – and my husband’s,” explains Longoria, before showing her community how to prepare her French toast step by step.

Something immediately catches the eye: the juicy slices of toast are usually bathed in an egg-milk mixture before they land in the pan. Not so with the actress. She completely renounces the milk. A brilliant trick: this way the French toast becomes particularly crispy and does not soften too much. So that the breakfast classic remains juicy, Eva Longoria relies on her secret ingredient: a brioche instead of classic toast. She cuts this into extra thick slices.

The preparation:

  1. Put the eggs, cinnamon, vanilla extract and sugar in a bowl and whisk vigorously with a whisk.
  2. Cut a few thick slices from the brioche. Roll these in the egg and cinnamon mixture.
  3. Melt 1 tbsp butter in a pan and bake the French toast in it.
  4. Melt the remaining butter in a second pan. Cut the bananas, put them in the pan, sprinkle with brown sugar and let them caramelize.
