    LAURIE's Note:

    The key here is to finely crush the cornflakes and nuts. I use my hand cranked nut chopper and just put them all thru it together. The combinations on this are endless, we like maple flavoring with pecans or walnuts, but use almond or vanilla extract with almonds, or butter flavoring with peanuts! Enjoy using your imagination!

      This is pretty good - rich, lots of flavours. I found there to be a lot of steps (dirtying a lot of dishes) for a breakfast food. The maple extract I used turned the toast a really dark, unappealing colour - I wonder if you can buy a clear maple extract - I didn't realize what I had bought as it was in a brown bottle. We like our french toast a little sweet but this wasn't sweet at all - it perked up with some maple syrup.

      Clearly a crowd pleaser. We liked the soaked-over-night texture with less prep time.

      My grandson and I had this treat for breakfast this morning and I have a feeling it will be requested often. The cornflakes and nuts gave it a wonderful crunchy exterior while the interior was soft custardy goodness. I also loved the addition of nutmeg, something I'd never used in french toast before. I used vanilla extract as I was out of maple, but made up for it by using real maple syrup. Thanks so much, LAURIE, for sharing such a delicious and easy to prepare recipe.
