Notes – The more custard the bread soaks up, the softer your french toast will be. If you want it drier and crispier don't let the bread soak up that much. For soft french toast, let the bread soak up more. The amount of custard you'll need will depend on this, so you may need to make more custard!
Substitutions – Use your favorite bread, just make sure it's dried out a bit.
