Recently, I discovered that the local Baker’s Delight doesn’t make/sell sour dough bread. The closest equivalent bread in their range is the Pane di casa. According to the Baker’s Delight webpage the Pane di casa is characterised by a hard, chewy crust and dense texture and is ideal for bruschettas.

Right about now you’re probably wondering what does sour dough have to do french toast??? It doesn’t.! I actually wanted it for some thing else, but somewhere in there my taste buds got confused and decided they wanted some french toast on Saturday instead of poached eggs w/ wilted spinach on toast (so pane di casa would’ve been fine for that).
“But I don’t feel like bruschetta, I wanna eat french toast!”
Traditionally, french toasts are made with either white bread or brioche, which I have neither, so I decided to give it a go anyway. Sometimes, it doesn’t take much to satisfy this girl’s cravings.
Since we didn’t have any white bread nor could I be bothered going out to find good decent brioche, I decided to give it ago and make a pane di casa french toast. I must say, it doesn’t taste too bad if you don’t mind your french toast being a bit dense. I like crusty ‘crust’ anyway, so that worked out fine for me. I like my french toast - sweet, so I dusted some icing sugar and added maple syrup to suit my taste. Yumm.. One girl’s taste buds satisfied… for now..
Incidentally, after I made this I went surfing and discovered that is the Eomeote time off the month! After much deliberation and creative soul searching, I came up with this as my first ever entry to this event.
Ed: Originally made this as my headline article first, but then I decided that I didn't like it so I made the one up the top instead. Somewhat more satisfied, though I still don't like it. Must be the perfectionist in me. :p
