This has got to be the best french toast I’ve had. Soft, chewy, sweet and delicious. Maybe because it reminds me of Sunday morning breakfasts with mom and my sisters at Denny’s or because it is simple and easy to put together. No prepping and soaking overnight – no extra cream cheese, blueberries, etc. etc. I love those things, but this is simple and everything you need is already in your fridge.
Denny’s French Toast
from Todd Wilbur’s “Top Secret Recipes 2”
yield 6 pieces of french toast
2/3 cup milk
1/3 cup flour
1/3 cup sugar
1/2 tsp. vanilla
1/4 tsp. salt
1/8 tsp. cinnamon
6 slices of Texas Toast (or thick white bread)
2-3 Tbs. butter
1. Mix eggs, milk, flour, sugar, vanilla, salt and cinnamon in large, flat bottom bowl.
2. Turn a skillet on medium-low or electric skillet to 325 degrees. Drop in 1 Tbs. butter or use the stick to cover the bottom with butter. When I had my skillet on less than 325, it took a lot longer to cook the bread.
3. Lay 1 slice of bread into the batter and allow to soak for about half a minute. Allow the batter to drip off and place into the skillet.
4. Let each side cook about 2 minutes. Each side should look toasty/golden brown. Additional butter may be added to the pan if you need it.
5. Sprinkle with powdered sugar using a sieve or flour/sugar shaker. Add any toppings you would like! Nuts, berries, syrup, etc.
