"This is, by far, the best French Toast I've ever had! I grew up on ole "fried bread", but, it sure never tasted like this! Really, really good, Angelfan. Thanks for posting a winner! LC"
"Me and my husband loved this. I used half whole wheat half enriched white flour, vanilla soy milk, splenda instead of sugar, egg beaters, and whole wheat bread. This was a yummy addition to our weekend big breakfast! Thank you for the recipe."
"This French Toast is absolutely amazing! We loved it! Sort of a cross between French toast and pancakes. Tastes great with the hint of cinnamon and nutmeg, and it's so sweet that I hardly needed any syrup. I just wish I could figure out how to cut this recipe in half (how do you divide an egg?) since there's only two of us. I would give this recipe 6 stars if I could! UPDATE: Made this again using only half the sugar -- it was still great, so I think I'll make it like this in the future. I may even try using half whole wheat flour."
"I thought that the batter for the french toast was way too thick. However, the taste is wonderful. I will try this again and use half the flour and report back on the results."
"This recipe is wonderful. Absolutely perfect for a special breakfast. After discovering this one, it's going to be a long time before I try a different French toast recipe. I followed the recipe exactly. And I served it with warm homemade strawberry syrup, sprinkled with powdered sugar. "
"I made this last night for my family and it was wonderful. Very simple but oh so good. Finally a recipe that I can use with plain old sandwich bread. Thank you so much! I'll be using this recipe from now on with no complaints!"
"Very nice! An excellent recipe for thinner bread that would otherwise fall apart while making french toast. I halved the recipe, but still used one whole egg, and it worked beautifully."
"I hava a similar recipe at home that uses a pancake mix instead of flour. We liked this one much better. Even though it is more of a batter, the coating is not that thick, and you don't end up with soggy french toast. This is a winner, and the way I'll make my french toast from now on. Thanks for sharing!"
"Not really to our liking we found. Easy recipe to follow, and although we enjoyed the results, I wouldn't make again...we missed the lightness of French toast dipped in egg and milk. This one is dense and heavier, understandable with the thick batter. Glad I made it, however, because I do like trying things in new and different ways. Thanks, angelfan."
"I don't usually make French Toast for lack of proper bread. This recipe solves that problem nicely, making even flimsy sandwich bread breakfast-worthy. It is a bit labor intensive for a single serving...so I'll just have seconds! Thanks angelfan."
"We liked the flavor on this, and I would have given it 5 stars, but I had a hard time with the appearance. It browned up just like a pancake, so it really did look more like a pancake and taste like french toast. Also, the batter ran down the toast a little, while cooking the first side, so that it literally was a piece of square piece of french toast with a round pancake sitting on top of it!"
"My family wanted breakfast for dinner. So in addition to the usual breakfast fare, I added your delicious french toast to the menu. Easy to make and loved the taste and puffiness. I had different toppings to go with it--powdered sugar, fresh strawberries, maple syrup and blueberry syrup. A great recipe, angelfan."
"Hi Angelfan, made your French toast for Sunday brunch...what a big-time hit it was, my DH says that it is THE best French toast he ever had, and so did my son and his girlfriend...the only thing is, I don't think I got out of the kitchen all morning, everone just wanted more and more of that delicious French toast, I think that I must of gone through two large loaves of French bread, and a quart of milk that morning. This will stay in my 5 star recipe folder,I will definately be making this again. Thank you Angelfan for posting, it's a real winner :-)"
"I posted in the everything else section requests for favorite zaar french toast recipes and this was submitted....Perfect, Perfect, Perfect!!I used 6 slices of Texas Toast in lieu of the 8 slices of reg bread, but that was the only change. It made for a beautiful presentation served with powdered sugar sifted over the top frozen sliced strawberrries in syrup, butter, maple syrup and whipped cream on top-----OH HAPPY DAY-----thanks Angelfan-so much--Peggy in TX"
"This batter is not thin like regular french toast is. That is what gives it the puff. as i said it works best with day old bread."
"We really liked this recipe. I think the reviewer who said it's a cross between a pancake and french toast described it really well. I like the texture much better than regular french toast. Thanks for sharing the recipe. We're looking forward to making this again."
"This is NOT your run of the meal French toast, it's soooooo much better. Puffy is right, I made as directed with only one small addition of 1 teaspoon of vanilla and it was perfect. Topped with powdered sugar, butter and warm maple syrup - YUM!!! This has become my new go to recipe, so glad you posted AND I chose it to make."
"This is a great recipe of french toast. I used baguette. It was delicious. Thanks angelfan :) Made for Holiday tag game"
"This is the best. After one bite my two year old exclaimed, "MEEREEY CHRISTMAS!!, the best Christmas ever." Lol. We halved the recipe using only the egg white for the half an egg..."
"While I enjoyed this recipe, I still prefer the standard French toast. I think I would like it better with about half the sugar. I do like the idea of the pancake texture though... so perhaps I'll use some flour and adapt a traditional recipe.
I used this for Valentine breakfast and it was a good texture to cut hearts out of though!"
