This is recipe is always a winner for breakfast at my house. It taste like buttery, sweet, golden brown goodness! It is easy to make even for someone like me, who had never made French toast before. I dare to compare it to one of the famous breakfast chain recipes. I got this recipe from one of my favorite cook books "Top Secret Restaurant Recipes 2".
2/3 cup whole milk (2% milk tastes yummy also)
1/3 cup all-purpose flour
1/3 cup granulated sugar
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon ground cinnamon
6 slices thick bread (I find Texas toast works best but regular sliced bread will work but be careful as they tend to fall apart if too saturated)
butter (if desired)
On the Side:
*Makes 2 servings of 3 slices each
1. Whisk together eggs, milk, flour, sugar, vanilla, salt, and cinnamon in a large bowl
2. Heat a large cast-iron or nonstick skillet over medium/low heat. When the pan is hot, add 1 tablespoon of butter. If the butter smokes, your pan it too hot, turn down the heat.
3.Drop each slice of bread into the batter, drip off the extra batter (if not you will get burnt pieces of batter on your toast) then drop the bread into the buttered pan. Cook each battered bread slice for 1 1/2 to 2 minutes per side or until golden brown. Add more butter to the pan as needed to cook all the French toast.
4. This recipe serves 3 slices of French toast per plate. Dust each serving with a little powdered sugar (tap it through a strainer) and add your favorite maple sugar on the top or on the side. Enjoy!
