    bikerchick's Note:

    I'd been polishing this recipe for a while, then found the absolute best bread to use and now The Beau says I've ruined him for all other French Toast. It's called shoku pan, it's from the Japanese bakery. Shoku pan is wonderfully square and comes sliced either thin or thick--each of the thick slices are an inch fat! Look for it at an Asian market, I get mine at Uwajimaya or 99 Ranch Market and buy it a couple of days before I'm planning to make this so the bread is slightly stale. If you can't find shoku pan, substitute another thick sliced Texas Toast style bread.

      I did not use the cognac and didn't have the milk or eggs at room temp. It turned out great anyways. I used Texas Toast, since I couldn't find the shoku, even at the Asian market. Mine made 13 slices, right to the bottom of the bowl, LOL! I did find that I had some settling of spices or sugar, so next time I'll stir the mixture in between soakings. Used my large electric skillet and was a snap. Everyone liked it. Made for Please Review.

      I used white bread in lieu of the shoku bread. I chose this recipe for the uniqueness of the flour and Grand Marnier. I was not dissapointed. The flour, congnac, and spices made for a wonderful french toast breakfast.

      I didn`t use shoku bread. Used half the recipe following the directions and came out with a very good breakfast.I just don`t understand the flour part? I`ve been making french toast for a very long time and this is the second recipe I seen that calls for flour. This would have been just as good if not better without it.
