The state of emergency in Japan has caused a sudden spike in home-cooking fever. With many residents working from home and a lot of restaurants staying closed, home cooking is a simple pleasure that the whole family can enjoy.
Hotel New Otani Osaka, the famous Japanese luxury hotel, keen to support the nation’s new pass time, has released its “Secret Hotel Recipes” online. The recipes are available here for a limited time until May 31st. Each recipe is stylishly presented and easy to follow thanks to each step being accompanied by clear pictures. They’re worth checking out if you (or your family) are hungry to add a dash of pizzazz to your table.
Amongst Hotel New Otani’s famous lineup of delicious signature dishes, their French Toast, Pain Perdu、パン・ペルデュ in Japanese, is especially renowned as being a heavenly medley of crispness and fluffiness. Easy to make and exquisite to eat, we donned our aprons and gave the recipe a try so that you too can learn how to make Hotel New Otani’s French Toast!
Hotel New Otani’s French Toast Recipe
Pain Perdu, the French term for French toast, means “lost bread” and is typically made from bread such as toast or baguettes.
French toast is commonly made and eaten for breakfast or as a snack in Japan. It’s simple to make but following the secret recipe from Hotel New Otani’s chefs will no doubt have a very special result!
If you can’t get vanilla, then vanilla essence will do just fine. For bread, I used cheap convenience store bread, or 食パン shokupan, in Japanese.
First add the sugar and milk into a bowl and mix well. Then add the cream, eggs and vanilla and mix until well combined.
