Step 7. Prepare dinner until golden. You’re going to fry the egg-dipped bread halves within the sizzling butter till it’s “sort-of golden brown” … due to the crimson meals coloring and cocoa powder, the colour of the cooked French toast could have a barely charred, black-ish shade moderately than a golden brown shade.
