Crispy-Custardy Air Fryer French Toast with a Twist

Cooking instruments: air fryer, mixing bowl, whisk, knife, serving plate

Tip: for this dish, you could really use an air fryer that supports a multi-use metal layer rack. That way, you will be able to place the toast slices on the rack and have it cooked more evenly. A model like this Avalon Bay air fryer or something similar will do the trick.
