This is really good. It is the closest I have come to copying some terrific French Toast from a Vegas Breakfast Buffet.

I didn't enjoy this recipie b/c the first piece of bread soaked up at least half the mix. The two remaining breads that i was able to moderate the servings a little better were still not good.

I guess I was expecting more of a unique french toast, but really, this tastes like french toast! My family couldn't even tell it was a new recipe (despite the tiny cornflake coating). It IS very good but everyone already thought this was my french toast recipe. Since I don't think it tastes better than my recipe, I won't go through the extra effort to make this again. Still, very good.

This was great. I used regular white bread but only dipped the pieces of bread in the egg mixture. Excellent brunch for my husband & I this morning.

The best french toast I had ever tasted! I didn`t even use the vanilla extract and only put a tablespoon of syrup in, and they still came out delicious. The confectioners` sugar made them perfectly sweet enough. And the idea of putting cornflakes in is ingenious. ;)

A good overall recipe. I will use thick bread when I make again-regular white bread fell apart-maybe I soaked it too long. I added another egg, but the batter only was enough for 5 slices.

Great recipe! Doesn't taste all that different from regular french toast, but still good. I used grape nuts instead of cornflakes and thought it worked well.

I didn't eat the french toast I just made it but my younger brother said it was very good. It seemed average to me. The milk to egg ratio seemed to work well in it. 4 stars.
