How Long Should I Soak The Bread For French Toast?

If you are using a soft, fresh bread, I recommend soaking it for no more than 10 seconds on each side, otherwise it would get too soggy and you won’t get the crispy exterior. For extra crunchy French toast, sprinkle granulated sugar on top of the bread after soaking it.
