This morning, I made my husband French Toast. I came up with this breakfast idea when he came home earlier in the week with a loaf of bread and said "I thought we could use this for French Toast".
The problem is, I'm awful at making French toast! My mom makes fabulous French toast. Hers has just the right amount of crunch on the outside and are fluffy and delicious on the inside. Mine often end up undercooked or burnt.
So, today I found this recipe on allrecipes.com and gave it a shot:
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
1 cup milk
1 pinch salt
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 tablespoon white sugar
12 thick slices bread
Measure flour into a large mixing bowl. Slowly whisk in the milk. Whisk in the salt, eggs, cinnamon, vanilla extract and sugar until smooth.
Heat a lightly oiled griddle or frying pan over medium heat.
Soak bread slices in mixture until saturated. Cook bread on each side until golden brown. Serve hot.
It turned out perfect! I really think that flour is the secret ingredient.
