I tried this recipe this morning and it is wonderful. The buttermilk really gives it a good zing.
I was looking for a recipe that used buttermilk when I came across this. My husband wasn't too happy when I told him I was fixing french toast but he immediately changed his mind when he ate it. We both enjoyed it and the flavor is so much better than the plain kind. So we have a new addition to our breakfast favorites with thanks to you.
I loved this recipe! That distinctive buttermilk sourness and the hint of almond made the results of this simple recipe really special. I only used cinnamon this time, but I'll try it with nutmeg in the future. I probably added more cinnamon than called for, because I just sprinkled it in until it looked right to me. This is definitely an improvement on basic french toast.
