This recipe can be tinkered with-use 2 eggs to 1/8 c. of milk and cut back on the cinnamon to about 1/2 tsp. One way to mix the cinnamon in thoroughly is to mix all ingredients together EXCEPT the milk-add it last.

Not enough eggs and too much milk. I gave this recipe a try and now I have to spend a half-hour trying to clean up the fried milk at the bottom of my skillet. Soaking the bread for about 20 seconds a side will make the bread extremely soggy and impossible to toast in skillet. The final product was a doughy, messy substance.

If your french toast is soggy, your not cooking it all the way. Its pretty much impossible to cook it all the way on the stove top. Use 1 cup of milk and 3 large egg, add whatever else you like. dip each side of the bread in for 30 seconds, let it sit for 1 minute, then cook 3-4 minutes on each side. remove from pan, and cook in 350 degree oven for 5 minutes. The milk/egg mixture is just like a cuzstard. You have to cook it completly so its not a soggy mess!

This is a great, simple recipe that will work for anyone who chooses to actually read the reviews before trying it. I have to laugh at everyone who experienced too much cinammon, or too soggy results. You all should have read the reviews FIRST.

This recipe STINKS! It does not work at all. There is way too much milk and an outragous amount of cinnamon. Was this recipe some kind of joke or what? Whatever you do don't EVER use this recipe. You will regret it.

This recipe is not worth making as it is written. The cinnamon should certainly be a TEASPOON not Tablespoon. Perhaps if you use a heavier type of bread 20 seconds in the egg mixuture might be OK. 2 thumbs down.

This recipe was horrible. It was so soggy and was so gross. I was looking for an easy french toast recipe. It wasted my time trying to make it. It didn't cook good at all because of the great amounts of milk. I wouldn't recommend this recipe to anyone.

Definetely too much milk and needs more egg. Another review was right... the first slice got WAY too much cinnamon compared to the rest. I made 3 slices, easily with the recommended amounts. TOO SOGGY!
