How to Make Fruity Pebble French Toast
The secret to fruity pebble French toast is baking the bread in a toaster instead of frying it in a pan. The bread is more tender and less dense when baked in a toaster. If you bake it in a regular toaster, you’ll end up with an undercooked crust and a soggy inside.
You’ll also notice that making the bread in a pan is much easier to burn. It would help if you flipped the bread over in a toaster several times until it got brown on both sides.
Also, use only a little butter and syrup on your bread. Just enough to cover the top and no more than that. The syrup is just a topping. It’s not part of the recipe.
You can cut the toasted bread into smaller pieces, so it’s easier to eat. It’s more fun that way, and the kids will love it.
