I make a batter starting with some milk and eggs then I add a can of condensed milk,vanilla,cinnamon and the zest and juice of a lemon.Then I add a little pancake mix to thicken it a bit.Sounds weird but it makes a great french toast.

I don't put sugar in my batter, instead, I use real french bread, eggs, nutmeg and a dash of cinnamon. cook in butter then sprinkle w/confectioners sugar and some berries. Even w/ the confectioners sugar, my kids will still add syrup! oohh! I love french toast!

Constance, I've never added sugar to the egg mixture. I like mine made with raisin bread, eggs, milk, vanilla & cinnamon - with butter and maple syrup on top - sometimes berries. I want to try adding Grand Marnier and orange zest or juice - or dunking the bread in egg nog and cinnamon. Chocolate chips always work in a pinch, lol.

Here is one I saved that looks yummy.


The caramel apple makes my mouth water too.

I've made tons of french toast over the last 50 yrs. I use homemade bread that is a few days old so it absorbs lots of egg. I use an egg per slice and a bit of milk, pinch of salt. Cook in a well buttered pan; serve with homemade strawberry jam! Yummy. A good way to get kids to eat eggs..... me too.

OMG, Mish...Raisin bread? That would be so good I'm not sure I could stand it!

By the way, what kind of syrups do you all recommend?
We had Aunt Jemima's, which has no real maple syrup in it at all. The real butter did help make up for it, though.
We get by with a little help from our friends

I'm tempted to make these tonight so I won't be rushed for breakfast in the morning BUT I just found out I've gained weight. Won't say how much either. So it's back to my Special K and 1% milk for breakfast.

I never put sugar in my egg batter. I do put cinnamon nutmeg and vanilla in it though. I'll have to try it with sugar next time.

I've been having fun reading this thread..Everyone loves their french toast and has a special way of making it. It's so great getting new ideas to try and then making it and thinking of the person who put the note up to share..Thanks everyone..Isn't it nice to sit and talk about a recipe and even tho we each do it a little different, we chat about it as if we were sitting in each others kitchen over coffee?
