Fluffy French Toast

20140403_085246

This is my favorite French toast recipe.  I make it once a month and freeze the remainder.  I usually use Texas Toast for the best result.  It’s just perfect.  I cook it up on my nonstick rectangular griddle that takes up two burners on the stove.  I usually double the recipe so there is more yield and less work in the long run.  Enjoy!

INGREDIENTS:

  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup milk (I use 2%)
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 3 eggs
  • 1/2 tsp. ground cinnamon (optional)
  • 1 tsp. pure vanilla extract
  • 1 T. white sugar (I’ve reduced this and it turns out just fine)
  • Approximately 12 thick slices of bread

DIRECTIONS:

  1. Measure flour into a large mixing bowl.  SLOWLY whisk in the milk.  (<— This step is very important to prevent unsightly lumps!)
  2. Then whisk in the salt, eggs, cinnamon, vanilla, and sugar until smooth.
  3. Heat a lightly oiled griddle or frying pan over medium heat.
  4. Soak break slices in mixture until saturated, one by one. 
  5. Cook break on each side until golden brown.  Serve hot.
