Fluffy French Toast

12 Aug

It’s Mike’s birthday, which in our house means he gets to pick his meals and I get to choose the dessert.  He asked for French Toast for brunch (last day to sleep in before school starts….) and Beef Tips and Noodles for dinner.  I already have a beef tips noodle recipe that I adore, so all I needed was one recipe for the day. I went on an epic search for a French Toast recipe; I found the winner at and it is definitely a keeper.

(modified for a serving of 2–originally designed for 12 servings)
2 teaspoons all-purpose flour
2 tablespoons and 2 teaspoons milk
1/8 pinch salt1/2 eggs
1/8 teaspoon ground cinnamon1/8 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon white sugar
2 thick slices bread

Flour?  Oh yes!  It’s key to this recipe’s fluffiness.  Mix all the ingredients in a medium bowl with a whisk, making sure it gets that creamy consistency.

Soak the bread long enough to sop up the mixture, and then cook it on a preheated griddle. I set mine at medium heat to allow for a slower cook.

The recipe doesn’t call for it, but it’s a special occasion: sprinkle a little powdered sugar over the finished product and serve with maple syrup:

If you’ve done everything correctly, the plates should look like this:
