I'll never be the type of person to complain about how a recipe turned out, if I fudged with/modified the original recipe while making it. I've made this exact recipe twice, and it was okay... (Hence the 3-stars.) However, the past few times I've made deep fried French Toast, I've modified this recipe into what I think is a 5-star-worthy dish! Here's what I do, now:
1 cup of flour.
1-1/2 teaspoon of baking powder.
1/4 cup of white sugar.
1/2 teaspoon of kosher salt.
1 teaspoon of cinnamon.
1 teaspoon of nutmeg.
1 cup of milk.
2 teaspoons of vanilla extract.
-Preheat deep-fryer to 375. *(I've only ever used corn oil for these, but I imagine canola/veggie/peanut oils would work just fine. Also, I would highly recommend a deep-fryer, instead of a skillet, so as to make sure the slices are evenly fried, and to maintain a perfect 375 degrees. But again, I imagine that this recipe would turn out fine, if all you have is a pan/skillet.)
-Mix all dry ingredients, whisk in the wet, then pour into a casserole dish.
-Dip your bread slices on both sides. *(Make sure to use a spatula, instead of tongs, so as not to rip the bread. *I've made this recipe with both white bread, and Challah slices. They both = superb, but Challah is my fave.
-Place into the oil, 2-3 slices at a time. They float immediately, so cook on both sides until nice and brown.
-Finish with sifted powdered sugar, and a few more dashes of cinnammon.
-Don't forget the bacon!
