I really enjoyed this simple french toast HokiesLady. I loved the crispness that the flour brings to this treat. I served mine with powdered sugar and spiced apple cider syrup. Even my picky dh enjoyed this treat. Thank you for sharing a recipe that I will make again and again.

Sooo tasty. I used day-old whole wheat french bread and let them soak a little bit longer before throwing them on the skillet. The recipe was perfect for this type of bread because the mixture wasn't too runny (thanks to the flour!). I also added some cinnamon, and the result was fantastic!
