Alton Brown Recipes: Concise, Consistent... And this one is Crunchy!

I probably should have started with Alton Brown's recipe to begin with. He has never steered me wrong. His recipes work!

Even with a small modification, I replaced 2T of Maple Syrup with 2T of honey and the recipe is still tops. Thank you,...

Jun 22, 2013 in FN On the Road Reviews on FoodNetwork.com

Fantastic!! We were craving more the next day, but sadly our trip is over so I have to learn how to cook Cuban!! The atmosphere at 90 Miles Cafe was wonderful! We ate on the back terrace. It's BYOB, so we bought their pitcher of Sangria mixture and added our own red wine.
Had the croquettas, the maduros, Marquitas, Vaca Frita, yuca Frita,...

This is a good recipe to launch from. It's the base. Now you decide if it needs more milk, additional ingredients, etc. I am saving this as my go to recipe for a pancake base."

At what temperature do you melt the sugar? How long?
When exactly do you stop? what do I look for? I even rewatched the video twice,
I did everything carefully and lovingly, but did not produce syrup, but hard, chewy candy that could pull out dental fillings.

We followed this recipe very loosely, marrying it with some flavors from Alton Brown's recipe, namely rose (we used a little bit of rose syrup in the honey/simple syrup reduction)...

Just made these using bias cut baguette slices, otherwise following AB's Recipe to the letter, even timing the turning over of the French toast and using the timer for the oven portion:
It tasted fantastic! The texture was perfect and so was the flavor. Alton Brown is a genius!"

I never write fan mail, but Chef Anne really IS a rock star! These instructions are crystal clear. The only thing is, I didn't measure the Kahlua, this didn't use enough, so I had to thin the chocolate mixture a little with cream before mixing both mixtures, but it turned out perfect: smooth, silky, rich. Absolutely no left overs! Am making thi...

I made this last night, loved my sauce (I took a few liberties with the recipe), but the breading... Go light. Too much breading ruins the delicate sauce and makes it taste more common.""
