Ultimate French Toast Recipe
~In a round baking pan beat 6 eggs. Add 5 Tablespoons of whole milk. Blend with fork.
~Gently add a splash of vanilla extract and a couple drops of almond extract. Mix.
~Top off your batter with 1/2 tsp of cinnamon. (I only add 1/4 tsp of cinnamon, dip a few slices, then add 1/4 more as it dwindles down.)
With a sprayed hot griddle or cast iron pan with a splash of olive oil, dip slices of your favorite bread in the batter. Turn and do the same on the other side.
~Next, place on the hot griddle. Brown, then flip.
~Once both sides are brown, remove and do the same with the next batch. Serve HOT with fresh churned butter and local maple syrup from your local foods store or farmer. AMAZING!!! So good!
Indeed there are many ways to make french toast; however this is my favorite because:
- You can substitute seasonings. My kids love the bakery apple pie seasoning, pumpkin pie seasoning and cardamom as well. Have fun & change it up. It is still delicious!!!
- Although we are fans of fresh churned butter and our fresh maple syrup most of all; we have also used a variety of toppings. Strawberries, blueberries, blackberries, thimbleberry syrup, honey, sprinkled powdered sugar, fruit whip, yogurt or cool whip are some of the few choices!!!
- Speaking of substitutes, how about the bread. Sliced hoagies are among my children’s favorites. The thick bread soaks in the small sliced, filling them with delicious flavor. Others include: french bread, sour dough (apple sour bread is AMAZING as french toast), cinnamon raisin or fruit breads work well too! (Even zucchini bread)
As you can see, with all these options, this is why we rank this recipe at the top of French toast recipes!
To improve overall taste, make with fresh brown eggs!!! Note that depending on the bread you select, this usually feeds 1 adult & 4 children. I do double the recipe if a thick heavy bread that will soak up a large amount of batter. Happy Homemaking!!!
