I added two tablespoons more milk (I did use lactose-free milk, as my youngest boy has a milk allergy), upped the cinnamon to a half teaspoon and I added a splash of vanilla extract. I chose to use Wonder Texas Toast--what happened is I was able to make five pieces of french toast because the bread was quite a bit thicker than your average white bread. The kids loved it. NO leftovers.

It was alright...just pretty standard with nothing special.

This definitely is "good old fashioned french toast" - one of my all time breakfast favorites! I don't know if I'd call this "ultimate" and everyone has their own particular way of making french toast to their liking. I add a little more milk, some white sugar, a tsp. of vanilla and a bit of nutmeg along with the cinnamon to the mixture. And just as the submitter states, serve hot wtih butter and maple syrup (a little dusting of powdered sugar never hurt either) - YUM!

Of course this is just a plain old fashioned french toast recipe! Isn't that what's it's all about? With all of the more "gourmet" type french toast recipes on this site, I'm sure there are plenty of novice cooks out there who welcome knowing how to make this basic comforting dish.

I love french toast. I adjust the eggs to however many slices of bread I use. Usually use french, italian or white bread. I start out with 2 eggs and a little bit of milk and sprinkle in cinnamon and about 1/4 tsp. of vanilla extract. Then sprinkle additional cinnamon on each side. Sometimes I've even added a touch of orange juice to eggs. Then I fry in oil until crispy. People that have had it say it is the best french toast. Such a good flavor with the vanilla and cinnamon. Try it! Thanks!

This was a great french toast recipe. I added a little more cinnamon and some vanilla extract. It was the best french toast I've ever had. I'd definately make this again!

Took advice and added 1 tbsp vanilla, increased the cinnamon...and voila! Absolutely perfect!
