At 34 years old, I pretty much thought it was a given that french toast was taught to all children as a staple recipe they took into adulthood. I was wrong. After talking with a friend, I was shocked to find out the only french toast she had ever eaten came from a box in the freezer section of the grocery store. After recovering from this horror, I promptly gave her this recipe.
This week, I received confirmation that her children now thinks she walks on water.
Fluffy French Toast
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
1 cup milk
1 pinch salt
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 TBSP white sugar
12 slices of toast
Frying pan or griddle
Combine flour, salt, ground cinnamon, and sugar in mixing bowl.
Add eggs and vanilla extract.
Whisk milk in slowly and stir until batter is smooth.
Preheat frying pan on medium.
Dip bread into batter until well coated on both sides, then place in pan.
Cook both sides of toast until golden brown.
Superhero Tip: Serve with syrup. Syrup is life. My favorite is cane sugar syrup, I grew up in Hawai’i surrounded by sugar cane fields and it tastes like clouds of happiness. Maple syrup will suffice – but it doesn’t taste like clouds of happiness.
Second Superhero Tip: Shake some powdered (confectioner) sugar on top for a special treat. Note, you should only do this on days when the kids are leaving the house or you’ll be stuck with the sugar overload coursing through their veins.
