Saturday mornings are for breakfast. For yummy, “fancy” but easy breakfast! Now that I have little ones, “sleeping in” no longer happens. Scratch that; sleeping in no longer exists in my world! So in order to drag myself out of bed on the weekend I’ve got to envision something delicious to make for breakfast for the family! I have so many favorites, including this Power Smoothie, and these Lemon Blueberry Pancakes.
This Classic French Toast is just that though; a total CLASSIC! I use a simple pie pan to mix the ingredients together. I’ve found that a pie pan is the perfect size to soak two pieces of bread at once, and fit all the ingredients without spilling. I also use a griddle for cooking french toast. Heck, I use that thing for everything from pancakes and bacon to cooking tortillas.
I love my French toast topped with fresh fruit, powdered sugar and good ol’ fashioned Mrs. Butterworth’s syrup! Ok, now I’m drooling. Enjoy everybody!
- 4 eggs
- 2/3 cup milk
- 1/4 cup flour
- 1/4 cup granulated sugar
- 1/4 tsp salt
- 3/4 tsp cinnamon
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 8 thick slices of bread
Preheat griddle or skillet over medium heat. Grease well with butter.
Add all ingredients, except the bread, to a shallow dish and whisk well to combine. Dip bread slices into the egg mixture, coating both sides, and place on hot griddle. Cook for a few minutes on both sides, until golden brown. Serve warm, sprinkled with powdered sugar and syrup.
