Fluffy French Toast

Raise your hand if you're sick of soggy French toast? {Raises hand high!} Now granted, there are a few folks that don't mind soggy bread. But then there are a few (read: A LOT) of folks who do. I know people who don't eat or make French toast just because of that problem. They like the flavors, just not the texture. Well, after you try this recipe, it's going to be the best feeling since, well, sliced bread. No sogginess but ALL the flavor. Trust me. Folks will be naming babies in your honor after they try this recipe. 
I'm sharing this recipe to celebrate National Egg Month. This recipe uses two Eggland's Best eggs. And hey, if you're gonna make some yummy French Toast, why not add some yummy nutrition to the mix. Eggland's Best Eggs are all kinds of good for ya! All of this good-for-you stuff packed in one egg!
So let's celebrate National Egg Month together. I hope you'll whip some of these up for breakfast or even supper. Do any of y'all do that? I don't always have time in the mornings like I would like to make breakfast. So I love to have it for dinner! What would you call that combo. of breakfast for dinner? Bupper? Brinner? Whatever you call it - I hope you'll call it good. 

Oh, and by the way, Mother's Day is on Sunday. {cough, cough, hint, hint} Momma sure does love French Toast...and bacon....and orange juice. 
1 cup all-purpose flour
2 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. sugar
1 tsp. ground cinnamon
1 cup milk
2 Eggland's Best Eggs
1 tsp. vanilla extract
12 slices Texas Toast Bread (thick sliced bread)
In a bowl combine all the dry ingredients (flour, baking powder, cinnamon and sugar.) Stir together well.
In an 8x8 square dish, whisk together the wet ingredients (milk, eggs and vanilla extract.)
Add dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and whisk together vigorously. 
Batter will be lumpy. I know, for some folks, lumps just cannot exist in any kind of batter. So, if that's you, take all of the batter ingredients and zoop them up in a blender then pour into square dish to begin dipping bread. 
Begin heating up your large skillet over medium-high heat. It's best to use a nonstick skillet for this or a large nonstick electric skillet/griddle. If you don't have nonstick, be sure to coat the pan well with vegetable oil or nonstick cooking spray. 

Once skillet has heated up, begin dipping your bread slices into the batter. Dip one side of the bread, flip it over and dip the other. Let any excess drip off. 
Then place coated bread immediately onto the pre-heated skillet.
Flip when browned and brown the other side. 
Once both sides are a golden brown, they are done!
 Sprinkle with a little powdered sugar. 
And drizzle on some fresh maple syrup. 
Look at that thick, fluffy french toast. No sogginess!

  1. This fluffy french toast looks amazing! I love using Egglands Best Eggs too! They are my favorite.

  2. YUM! I can't wait to try this recipe! Thanks for sharing! :-)

  3. This looks so good!! It's been ages since I have had French toast. I think I need to have some soon!

  4. I am the only one here that loves french toast - can these be frozen after cooking?

    1. I've frozen french toast before and and you can either microwave it or warm them in the toaster. ;)

  5. Found this via Pinterest and just thought I'd tell you that if you put in the flour first, make a well in the middle and then whisk in the eggs followed by the milk - you won't get any lumps. Works for all batters, pancake, waffle etc.

  6. I was looking for a different way to make French toast this morning and found your recipe. I followed the recipe exactly and would not use the word fluffy in the title. My batter was rather thick and the toast was dense and heavy. It tasted very good but the heaviness of the bread was a bit much for my taste. The batter doesn't soak into the bread like my thin runny egg dip so the flavor is really on surface of bread. The positive is the taste is very good but the negative is the heaviness of the bread being encased in this thick batter. Maybe if I try again I would add an extra egg, less flour, or more milk.

  7. Thanks JBL for stopping by and letting me know how it turned out for you.

  8. Making me hungry! I will have to try this this weekend!
    Thank you for sharing.

  9. Claudia, I hope you get to make it and enjoy it as much as we do!

  10. This recipe was fantastic! I couldn't find texas toast liked bread at Whole Foods, so I used Challah bread instead and it still came out wonderful! Thanks for the new brunch recipe!

  11. Oh I bet that was fabulous! So glad you now have a new brunch recipe in your back pocket.

  12. I'm 50/50 on this one! I made the batter exactly as directed and it felt like I was dipping my toast into pancake batter (SO THICK)... so I made a few pieces like this, and then added more milk and tried it that way too. The original was much less "soggy" but so dense, the more milk made the other pieces soggier, but more fluffy. I also added more cinnamon to the second batch. I liked adding the flour, it seemed to give a better distribution of the cinnamon but I'm torn about it being too much and then too little. I'll have to play with this recipe some more. But overall, very good!

  13. After reading the reviews....I made a few changes to this recipe. I only used 1/2 cup bread flour and only 1 tsp baking powder, and I used 4 eggs instead of just 2 eggs. it wasn't to thick & my French toast turned out fluffy & perfect! I did as the recipe instructed & added my dry ingredients to the wet which left the batter a little lumpy but not thick....the lumps cook out. My French toast turned out fluffy & perfect! Only made 7 slices tho. ����������������

  14. Awsome! that's all I have to say!!!! I made this recipe this morning for my kids, I made it exactly like the recipe calls for and all I did was add sprinkles and chocolate chips my kids devoured them!!!! Such a fantastic recipe thank you!

  15. I had been looking for a good french toast recipe for quite a while. All of the others that I had tried came out extremely soggy. This recipe was perfect. I added more cinnamon and vanilla. Fantastic!

    1. Yay! So glad they were perfect! A little extra cinnamon and vanilla never hurt anyone.

  16. This recipe was fantastic!

  17. I used to eat soggy French toast all the time. And to be honest it really sucked. Never get an even layer of cinnamon either. :( I've been using this recipe now for over a year and a half and it's always a hit. Plus it reheats well, so I cam eat all the left over. BONUS!! Thank you so much for making my Sunday (and every other day that ends in y) breakfast so much better :)

    1. That is awesome Katelyn!! SO glad you are enjoying this recipe.

  18. I made this French Toast beginning of the year and believe me everyone love it. Its my kids favorite too and is on our Saturday Brunch menu 👍 they always tell people their mommy makes the best French Toast
