Farmhouse French Toast

Girlfriends, I found the very BEST French toast recipe and I just have to share it with you.  

This is a restaurant-quality recipe and of course, we enjoy having breakfast for supper about once a week at least.

Served with a slice or two of good butcher-shop bacon, it's sweet with garden-fresh strawberries and some confectioner's sugar.   

I can't wait to try this again, with some new variations...for one, I am going to trade out the white sugar for brown, and I also want to add nutmeg to it. 

This is a custard-like dip for your french toast with a nice substance and a good finish and feel.  The difference in this recipe that is something I never had done before is the flour in the recipe.  It coats the bread in a substantial way and prevents sogginess.  

See what you think!  

Farmhouse French Toast
1/4 cup all purpose flour
1 cup milk
1 pinch salt
3 eggs
1/2 t. cinnamon
1/2 t. vanilla extract
1 T. white sugar
12 slices of thick bread

1.  Measure flour into a large bowl or into the mixer bowl on your Kitchen-aid.  
2.  Whisk in the salt, milk, eggs, cinnamon, vanilla extract and sugar until smooth.
3.  Lightly oil a griddle or frypan over medium heat.
4.  SOAK bread slices on each side and then fry until golden brown.

SERVE your way!  ENJOY! 

Do you enjoy a breakfast for dinner every now and then?

  2. Hello Joni, thanks for the recipe. I just made this recipe this morning for my 3 children, and they devoured it. I also made a strawberry sauce with 1/2 cup of water, 2 cups of frozen strawberries, 1 Tbsp of sugar, and 2 Tbsp of corn starch. I let this come to a boil and simmer while the French toast was frying. It was such a good combination, and the French toast was amazing. Thank you for sharing your recipe.
