This is a 5 * recipe with 1 simple change. Be sure and add the 1 T powdered sugar to the batter mixture. It needs for that IHop taste. If you only put on after it is cooked not the same. If you look at other french toast recipes you will see most have sugar in the egg mixture for a reason!

I didn't get to type my review :) I don't know about Ihop, but I just made this a few minutes ago, exactly as written, and it's delicious!!

For the 2 of us, this recipe made enough to 2 meals (breakfast & dinner), especially when paired with Amy020's recipe #101676! I did leave out the salt & used thick slices of a winter wheat bread that's a staple around our house, & the resulting french toast (although perhaps not the Ihop standard) was wonderful! Thanks for sharing! [Tagged, made & reviewed for one of my adoptees in the current Pick-A-Chef]
