My favorite French Toast

This recipe is our favorite Sunday morning French Toast.  It is great when served with powdered sugar and whip cream too.

French Toast (I believe we originally found this on food.com, but have since modified the recipe to our liking!)

Ingredients:

  • 4 eggs
  • 2/3 cup of milk
  • 1/3 cup of flour
  • 1/2 cup of sugar
  • 1 tsp of vanilla (we use the clear vanilla, but either will work)
  • 1/4 tsp of salt
  • 1/4 tsp of cinnamon
  • 6-8 slices of thick bread (this has been hard for us to find, so we have been known to buy a whole uncut loaf from bakery or Panera the day before and cut ourselves to the size we like!
  • 3-4 tbsp of butter

Serve with:
  • Powdered Sugar
  • Whip Cream
  • Syrup
  • Butter

Directions:
  1. Mix together eggs, milk, flour, sugar, vanilla, salt & cinnamon.
  2. Heat large skillet or griddle on med to low heat
  3. When the skillet is hot, add 1 tbsp of butter.
  4. If the butter smokes, pan is too hot, turn down the heat
  5. Dip each slice into the batter for about 30 secs on each side
  6. Let some of the batter drip off, then place on skillet.
  7. Cook each slice 1 1/2 to 2 minutes each side.  Until it is golden brown.
  8. As you cook, you will need to add more butter to keep skillet from sticking with bread!
  9. To serve, butter & dust with powdered sugar.  Serve with hot syrup or whip cream.  
It's a filling breakfast, makes for a great Sunday morning to hold them off until later afternoon football until lunch!!!  Enjoy!!!  :O)
