Over the years, I’ve seen and made various versions of French Toast, but my favorite is one which uses flour. Sounds weird, given that flour is hardly ever used in making French Toast, but trust me, it makes all the differences in giving French Toast that light and airy feeling to it. This recipes yields 5-6 slices.
- 2 tablespoons and 2 teaspoons all-purpose flour
- 2/3 cup milk
- a pinch of salt
- 2 eggs
- 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- a pinch of nutmeg (optional)
- 3/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 2 teaspoons white sugar
- 6 slices of bread (I don’t like using brown bread because it never seems to give the perfect texture and tenderness for French Toast; I personally prefer white whole wheat, since that’s still healthy while giving that right texture)
- Put the flour into a large mixing bowl. Slowly whisk in the milk. Whisk in the salt, eggs, cinnamon, nutmeg, vanilla extract and sugar until smooth.
- Heat a frying pan over low heat using butter or vegetable oil
- Soak bread slices in mixture until saturated. Cook bread on each side until golden brown. Remember, the pan heats up easily with time, so it is easy to burn the latter toasts. You just have to be watchful.
- Serve hot with either maple syrup or powdered sugar or fruits.
