    Pain Perdu au Caramel Beurre Salé - French Toast with Salted Caramel Sauce Recipe

    Ingredients (4 persons):

     

    for the  caramel sauce:

    • 80 g sugar (you can use caster sugar if you want)
    • 80 g half-salted butter
    • 20 cl of liquid cream
    • 20 ml cognac brandy

     

    for the  caramel sauce:

    • 3-4 croissants
    • 2 eggs
    • 50 g butter
    • 200 ml milk

     

    Preparation Method:

    1. Add the sugar to a sauce pan and heat over medium heat until melts, becoming an amber colored liquid, it takes about 3 – 4 minutes.
    2. Meanwhile, in another skillet, heat the cream and set aside.
    3. As soon as the sugar is turned into caramel – golden brown, remove the pan from the heat and gently add the cream in small batches, stirring constantly.
    4. Add the butter and cognac, and stir again until it reaches the desired thickness. If the cream is not thick enough, heat the pan over low heat and stir until you get the desired consistency.
    5. If not using this cream/sauce right away you can keep it by pouring it into a jar and reserving it in a cool place.
    6. Cut the croissants into thick slices of about 2 cm.
    7. Beat the eggs with the milk. (I did not add sugar because the croissants were already a bit sweet but you can add some if you like the french toasts sweeter.)
    8. Dip the slices in the egg and milk mixture on both their sides and let them soak for one minute.
    9. Heat the butter in a large skillet and brown the brioche slices on both sides over medium low heat.
    10. Arrange slices on plates and pour the salted caramel sauce on top, decorate with some canned or fresh fruits on the side.
    11. Serve immediately while warm.
