This is the best french toast recipe! Instead of using a dozen eggs and who knows how much cinnamon, I came up with this and it almost taste like it was baked, but you still cook on a griddle. Family favorite.
- 1⁄4 cup all-purpose flour, plus
- 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
- 1 1⁄2 cups milk
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 5 eggs
- 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
- 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
- 2 tablespoons white sugar
- 18 slices bread, thick slices
- Measure flour into a large mixing bowl. Slowly whisk in the milk. Whisk in the salt, eggs, cinnamon, vanilla extract and sugar until smooth.
- 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 brown.
- Serve hot.
I gave this recipe 3 stars. I'm not rating this for myself as I haven't tried this recipe but my niece made a recpe very close to this in her cooking class. She didn't like it much. I plan to try the recipe and see why. The measurements she got is slightly different. It calls for just the 1/4 cup all-purpose flour, 1 c milk, 1 pinch salt, 3 eggs, 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon, 1 tsp vanilla extract, 1 tbl white sugar, 12 slices thick bread and 1 c 10x confectionary sugar-for dusting. The directions are exactly the same for sprinkling toast with 10x confectionary sugar or maple syrup. Thanks for posting hope to try this again! Christine (internetnut)
Ooolala! This recipe made very good French toast; I made a very small batch and ate it with sliced strawberries and sugar. My only beef is the amount of cinnamon; I personally think a whole teaspoon is a little bit much. Other than that, wonderful! Thank you for sharing this recipe!
This resembles what we call "Fresno French Toast" and we've enjoyed that for years. Flour, cinnamon, and vanilla in the batter takes the old standby off the beaten path. Delicious and easy enough to do all the time. Two small cautions: Be sure to follow step 1 or the flour will clump, and don't get the grill too hot or the toast will get too dark before cooking through. Made for PAC, April 2008.
