Preparation time Cook time Ready in
5 Minutes 10 Minutes 15 Minutes
- 2 eggs
- 1⁄4 cup milk
- 1⁄2 teaspoon vanilla
- 1⁄2 teaspoon cinnamon
- 6 -8 slices bread
- Beat eggs with wire whisk until foamy.
- Add milk, cinnamon and vanilla; Beat well.
- Spray large non-stick skillet with cooking spray. Heat over medium heat. You can also use a griddle set at 375.
- Dip bread into batter and cook until golden brown, about 1-2 minutes per side. Whisk the batter before you dip each slice to distribute the cinnamon.
- These can be made low fat by replacing the eggs with 4 whites or 1/2 cup egg substitute and using fat free milk. I usually double the recipe and refrigerate (up to a week) or freeze (2 months) the leftovers.
I love the addition of orange. What a great idea, esp with a touch of cinnamon and/or vanilla. I have been reading quite a bit about french toast as mine is often soggy and I’m not overly keen on it. Although I’ve always heard that you should use stale bread, I recently read on Fine Cooking that fresh bread makes for better french toast. While staler bread absorbs more liquids, fresh bread is softer so it makes for a more tender french toast. I might try that to see if it makes a difference, I just hope it isn’t more soggy! I guess everyone has a different preference.
