Good, morning ! I cooked french toast in my waffle cooker. It was not nearly as soft but it was crispy only in the area that the cooker pressed. The guests thought the presentation was very strange but the texture pleased them.

When I make it I do not soak the bread very long, the egg/milk mixture does not have to saturate it. I also have the pan on medium heat and the butter should be bubbling before the toast goes in. Hope this helps.

Well said manella. I also use a crusty bread and cinnamon. Sometimes I put almond or lemon extract in there to change it up.

I like to use either a really soft Italian or Challah loaf from the bakery. I also combine in a shaker powdered sugar and cinnamon. Adjust to your taste, but I go about 4 tablespoons sugar to 1/2 tsp cinnamon. Cut your bread on the bias about 3/4 inch thick. Heat a skillet to about medium and use careful and watch your heat...if it smokes, its too hot. Dredge the bread in a mixture of 4 large eggs and 1 cup milk and 1 cup half and half. Add a teaspoon of pure vanilla extract. Once you place your bread in the skillet, use the shaker on the uncooked side liberally....once you flip, use it on the cooked side. Flip once more to caramelize the previously cooked side....This will get it pretty crisp and have a wonderful flavor. If you have any questions, let me know. This is ALWAYS a big hit with family and guests.

This French toast recipe is different because it uses flour. I have given it to some friends and they've all liked it better than the French toast they usually make!

If you want crispy, and delicious, press it in crushed Frosted Flakes after the egg mix, the toast in the butter in the pan..I said delicious, not diet.
