awesome! i did soak mine even though they told us not to--but not for too long b/c this bread is pretty absorbant. The bread made it great too.

The toast turned out way to soggy. And I think 4 eggs was too many I had all the mixture left at the end and plus the egg taste overpowered every other taste.

Loved it! I wanted to make my kids french toast and was all out of bread except a 4 Hawaiian mini rolls. So I decided to try it with them. My kids and I loved it so much we will never use plain bread again!

I made this for my husband on his birthday and he loved it! He is a purist, he likes his French Toast without all the fuss and frills of some of these other recipes. I wasn't sure how he'd like this sweet bread, but he said its his new favorite! I made the recipe exactly as it states.

Delicious! I love French Toast and this is a good basic recipe for this classic breakfast treat. I add a bit of sugar and nutmeg to the mix as a personal preference. This was oh so good topped with powdered sugar and served with fresh slices of strawberries and REAL maple syrup!

Delicious recipe and so easy! Good with regular old white bread too, not just the thick slices the recipe calls for. Mmmmmm.

First time making French Toast and it was yummy! I used cinnamon raisin bread instead of King's Hawaiian. My only problem with this recipe is that they don't tell you what level of heat to fry the bread over. I started at medium heat and burned a few pieces before turning the burner down, but our stove runs a little hot.

Couldn't be easier or tastier. I used Challah bread sliced about 1' thick, and I did soak a little bit (couldn't help myself0. We loved it!!
