I found this recipe on Allrecipes.com and have been using ever since. Over 200 people have reviewed this on their website! What makes it special is the addition of flour to the batter. It enables the coating to stick on the toast and not in the pan. Note: I use Texas Toast bread.
- 1⁄4 cup all-purpose flour (I use blender, since the flour tends to not mix in evenly)
- 1 cup milk
- 1 pinch salt
- 3 eggs
- 1⁄2 teaspoon cinnamon (I add more)
- 1 teaspoon vanilla (I also add some maple extract)
- 1 tablespoon white sugar
- 12 slices bread (I use Texas toast)
- Heat a lightly oiled griddle or frying pan over medium heat.
- Soak bread slices in mixture until saturated.
- Cook bread on each side until golden.
- I sprinkle with powdered sugar and serve syrup on the side.
Pretty good! Not out-of-this-world, but definitely good. I didn't find it to be "fluffy," but I'd make them again. I cut all ingredients into 1/3 of the original measurements as I was cooking for one. I didn't have enough mixture to soak the last piece (4th piece) of bread. I also used potato bread; that is all I had, so I may try this again with much thicker bread.
Who would have thought the addition of flour would have made just that little difference to make this an excellent recipe for French Toast. I like to use Vanilla butter nut extract a lot in my pancakes and french toast, so that was the only 'change I made. Thanks for posting this. I believe this will be the way I make french toast from now on.
This is great! I've never made french toast this way before, but I will never go back now! My bread was very dense and I didn't soak it long enough, but it was still fantastic. Next time I will soak longer and whisk it more between batches (most of my cinnamon was at the bottom).
