"I first ate this French toast in a coffee shop in Galveston, Texas. After I'd tried it I couldn't wait to come up with my own version. It's great for a late brunch; especially when topped with syrup, fresh strawberries and whipped cream"

vegetable oil for deep-frying

Definitely the best french toast I have ever eaten. I made fresh cinnamon/brown sugar bread and sliced it thick. It turned out great.
Don't be tempted to not use the corn flakes! They add a lot to the recipe.
O.k., this was WAAAAY too messy, way too greasy and waaaay to sweet. I would suggest using unsweetened cornflakes, as the recipe already has sugar in it. When you add the syrup...sugar overload! I can't imagine, as sweet as this recipe is, adding whipping cream on top of the syrup!
Awesome recipe !
I used Challah bread and Raisin Bran Crunch (minus the raisins) and it came out great. The children loved it and they didn't even want syrup until I offered it to them (silly me) The outside was crisp and the inside moist. Loved it!
I have used several recipes from this website, but this one is the best!!!! Easy and really good to look at. My whole family went nuts over it and I have made copies for family and friends. Great to serve company, too! Defenitely a 5 star!!
I have been making this same recipe for years and love it. I don't measure, just add a little of this and that. Thanks for submitting it, Donald.
I made this recipe for my daughter and myself, and we did not like it at all.
This is the best french toast I have ever had! I did make an adjustment though. All I had was frosted flakes, so I just didn't add any sugar to the egg mixture. It wasn't too overly sweet, just right. Also, (using normal white bread) I cut the slices in half on a diagonal before putting it in the egg mixture. That way it was easier to take in and out of the hot oil. It makes it look a lot nicer too. Oh..and I ate two piece's but it only works out to be one piece of bread, so it wont be as harsh on the waist line! I hated french toast til I found this recipe!
