I love breakfast. Without doubt, it is my favorite meal of the day. And French toast for breakfast? Don’t get me started! This recipe is a great version of the classic and results in beautifully crispy and delicious French toast. In fact, it was so good that even my non-breakfast-loving husband ate two slices! Trust me, that’s a huge compliment! Serve with fresh fruit, a sprinkling of powdered sugar or maple syrup, and you’re in for a sure morning delight!
Because we have so much delicious egg bread around, I used that, and it was incredible! The sweet flavor is perfect for breakfast and goes beautifully with berries. And its delicate, fluffy texture is great for French toast. There’s just no comparison with sliced bread from the store!

Classic French Toast
Yield: 6-8 slices
1/4 cup of flour
1 cup of milk
A pinch of salt
1/2 tsp of ground cinnamon
1 tsp of vanilla extract
1 tbs of sugar
6-8 slices of bread
Measure the flour into a mixing bowl. While stirring constantly, whisk in the milk. Next, add the eggs, one at a time, and then the salt, cinnamon, vanilla and sugar. Continue whisking until thoroughly combined.
One by one, lightly soak the slices of bread in the mixture until they are coated.
In a pan over medium-low heat, cook the bread until it is crispy and golden brown on the outside, turning once halfway through the cooking time.
Serve warm with your choice of toppings.
A note or two: When using a bread that’s delicate like egg bread, I find it best not to soak the slices too much, to prevent them from becoming soft in the middle. Also, we’ve discovered that the batter keeps really well in the fridge, so you can use it throughout the week if you are only making one or two slices at a time.
