My Favorite French Toast

I'd been polishing this recipe for a while, then found the absolute best bread to use and now The Beau says I've ruined him for all other French Toast. It's called shoku pan, it's from the Japanese bakery. Shoku pan is wonderfully square and comes sliced either thin or thick--each of the thick slices are an inch fat! Look for it at an Asian market, I get mine at Uwajimaya or 99 Ranch Market and buy it a couple of days before I'm planning to make this so the bread is slightly stale. If you can't find shoku pan, substitute another thick sliced Texas Toast style bread.
