Step 1

In a bowl add the eggs and then whisk in the milk, sugar and cardamom.

Step 2

Soak slices of bread into the egg mixture for just a few minutes on each side (this depends on how thick your bread is -- you want the mixture to soak into the bread)

Step 3

In a skillet over medium heat add the butter and oil and when hot add 2 slices of bread; cook for a few minutes until golden and then flip over to cook other side. Remove from pan and dust with confectioners' sugar. Repeat with remaining bread and egg mixture.

Step 4

Should be served immediately topped with your favorite topping -- in our house it is maple syrup and berries if available.

Delish! I love cardamom and this French toast didn't disappoint (I did go a little heavy on the cardamom, though)! I originally thought it was too many eggs for the amount of bread, but I was wrong... this is perfect and the bread sopped it up. What I learned from this recipe is that using a mix of oil and butter makes for a much crispier french toast - I'll never use all butter again.
