I love breakfast because it is usually one of the easiest and yummiest meals to make!
It is also great because you can have breakfast any time of the day. Even for dinner!
We do that a lot at my house, which is why it is important to me to have a variety of recipes to choose from.
I also tend to create a lot of breakfast recipes because my husband makes breakfast for his crew at the fire station.
He is always asking me to come up with new and classic things he can make.
Perfect French Toast
That’s where this French Toast recipe comes in. It is pretty much the best French Toast EVER!
This recipe has never failed me and i make it all the time!
The flour in the batter really helps to make the outside a little crispy while the inside is soft and yummy, but not soggy.
How to Freeze French Toast
When I make this recipe, I usually do a really large batch. I freeze the slices on a baking sheet and then put them in a ziplock bag when frozen.
When it’s time to eat, just pop a piece or two in the microwave for 20-30 seconds or use the toaster to heat it up.

What is French Toast Batter Made Of?
Eggs- For this French Toast batter, I like to use large eggs. The egg is what binds the batter to the bread.
Milk- Milk is what makes the French Toast batter nice and creamy. It also sweetens it a bit. The more milk you add, the creamier your French toast will be.
All-Purpose Flour- In this recipe, I used 1/3 cup of all-purpose flour to thicken up our French Toast batter. The more flour you use the thicker your French Toast will be.
Vanilla Extract- Vanilla extract is what gives our French toast its amazing smell and flavor.
Cinnamon- Cinnamon is what gives our French toast its delicious taste! It is also a really strong spice that will enhance the flavor of your batter.
Loaf of Texas Toast- I use Loaf of Texas Toast to make my French Toast because it has a thicker consistency than typical bread, so it can hold up to the batter.
Butter- Use butter to spread on the griddle to keep the French Toast from sticking.
What Kind of Bread is Best for French Toast?
Brioche Bread- Brioche Bread is what most restaurants use to make their French Toast. It’s especially good for French Toast because it’s so thick and fluffy, which makes each piece of bread absorb more of the batter!
Texas Toast- Texas toast is another great choice for French Toast because its thick consistency absorbs more of the batter than typical bread.
Challah- Challah is another great bread to use for French Toast!
Hawaiian Bread- Another good choice for French Toast is Hawaiian Bread, because it’s so thick and buttery!
How Long Should French Toast Soak?
For a really creamy French Toast, you should let it soak for at least thirty minutes! But, if you’re short on time, a couple of minutes per side should do the trick.
How to Tell When French Toast is Cooked
Check the color of your French Toast. When cooked, it will be golden brown and crispy on the outside! You can also test your French toast by sticking a fork into it and making sure that steam no longer comes out.
When will my French Toast be ready?
After cooking your French toast, you should let it sit for a minute so the batter can thicken on the inside of the bread . Then serve with syrup! Yummy!

How to Make Perfect French Toast
 Next, pour the batter in a shallow dish, such as a pie pan.
 Heat a griddle or frying pan to medium high heat, around 350 degrees.
 Add a slice of Texas Toast to the pie plate and allow it to soak for 10-15 seconds on each side.
 Place the bread slices on the hot griddle and cook for 2-3 minutes on each side until it is golden brown.
 Remove the french toast from the griddle and serve immediately, or keep warm in the oven until ready to serve.
