Friday Favorite: Fluffy French Toast

My friend Hillary at The Other Mama is having a Friday Favorites on her blog today! So I am sharing our NEW favorite breakfast recipe for french toast. It is delicious and sooo easy to make. For the first 3 1/2 years we were married before Hayes was born, Nathan and I went to eat breakfast every Saturday morning, and I mean EVERY Saturday! He really likes breakfast foods and I do too (just not nearly as much as him.) But now it's not quite as easy to take Hayes, especially since her restaurant high chair span is a whopping 5 minutes and then she's done. So now we mainly cook at home on Saturdays and just came across this recipe from All Recipes. I made the mistake of telling Nathan I would TRY to cook breakfast at least 2 days a week-haha! Well Thursday morning I got up and he was already in the kitchen cooking the french toast. I did make the coffee though.
If you need a Saturday morning breakfast idea this is definitely it! All of the ingredients you most likely have at home except for the BBQ bread. Enjoy! Sorry no pics of the delicious breakfast, it was way too early for the camera!

1/4 cup all-purpose flour
1 cup milk
1 pinch salt
3 eggs
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 tablespoon white sugar
8 thick slices bread-use BBQ bread!

1. Measure flour into a large mixing bowl. Slowly whisk in the milk. Whisk in the salt, eggs, cinnamon, vanilla extract and sugar until smooth.
2. Heat a lightly oiled griddle or frying pan over medium heat.
3. Soak bread slices in mixture until saturated. Cook bread on each side until golden brown. Top w/strawberries, blueberries or both and serve with sausage or bacon. YUMMY!

Yum! My husband and I love breakfast food, too. He's weird, though, because he doesn't normally EAT breakfast. I guess he only likes it for special occasions. (Weirdo.) :)

Mmmmm. I love using thick bread (we call it Texas Toast here) for French Toast. And the vanilla is the key. Always use vanilla. Mmmm.
