French toast, was a recipe created to use up stale bread. There is nothing better than French toast for breakfast, with thick slices of bread, soaked in a mixture of beaten eggs with milk and cinnamon, toasted in a frying pan, and served with butter and maple syrup; then topped with powdered sugar. This has to be one of our favorite breakfast dishes. I prefer the thicker bread to make this recipe, because I can’t stand “soggy” French toast, eww! Add this recipe to your next morning’s breakfast or brunch gathering and be prepared for the compliments.
4 large Eggs
2/3 cup Whole Milk
1/3 cup All-purpose flour
1/3 cup granulated Sugar
1 tsp. Vanilla extract
1/4 tsp. Salt
1/4 tsp. ground Cinnamon
8 slices thick Texas toast bread
Butter, for frying
In a medium bowl, combine all the dry ingredients; the flour, sugar, salt, and cinnamon. Stir well to combine.
Now in a larger bowl, combine the wet ingredients; the eggs, milk, and vanilla. Using a whisk, beat until the eggs are well incorporated with the milk.
Now add in the flour mixture into the egg mixture and using a whisk, once again; beat until well incorporated. The batter will be thin and lumpy. If you’d like, strain the mixture into a sieve to remove the lumps, but it’s not necessary.
Now in a non-stick fry pan, on MEDIUM heat, add in a tablespoon of butter and allow it to melt.
Place a slice of bread into the egg mixture and allow to soak on both sides for about 30 seconds.
Place the bread into the fry pan and allow to cook for about 1 – 2 minutes on each side or until slightly browned and cooked. Remove onto a serving plate and top with butter to allow to melt. Continue cooking the rest of the bread slices. SERVE immediately!
