    HeatherFeather's Note:

    I learned how to make this rich, gooey, caramel-ly version of French Toast when I lived in Louisiana. It is very sweet - feel free to decrease the amount of sugar if you wish. There is no milk in this version. If you don't have a good nonstick pan, you may need to grease your pan with some oil or butter rather than the nonstick spray, as the sugar caramelizes and can be a little messy to clean.

    Ingredients:

    Servings:

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Beat together the eggs,sugar,and vanilla extract.
    2. 2
      Dip each slice of bread into the batter to coat both sides.
    3. 3
      Drain off excess batter and cook on a hot griddle that has been first sprayed with nonstick butter flavor spray (or brushed with oil).
    4. 4
      Brown well on both sides,but don't let burn.
    5. 5
      Dust with powdered sugar and serve with warm maple syrup on the side.
    6. 6
      Note: You may use any kind of bread you prefer-however,the softer the bread you use, the soggier it will be (I prefer to use day old challah bread or Italian bread slices).
    7. 7
      The number of servings will also vary depending upon the size of your bread slices- I usually serve 2-3 slices per person.

      I am always looking for something to do with my leftover challah. My kids loved this. I made this in my sandwich maker and it was really easy to cleanup and came out great. I must admit that I did cut back a little on the sugar in the recipe, but my kids made up for it with the powdered sugar and maple syrup!

      Oh HeatherFeather, this is so decadent and majorly delicious. I made this for Sunday brunch with my in-laws. Very classy and the maple syrup is a great accompaniment. Although eating these with just the powdered sugar is fine too. Thanks so much for sharing this.
