whole wheat bread
confectioners' sugar for dusting
Seriously, people, those of you who appoint yourselves as the "food police" STOP rating and commenting on recipes that you haven't tried and don't plan to. NO ONE CARES if you think there's too much fat or sugar or whatever in a recipe, we are free to eat what we want and so are you. Go enjoy your egg whites and mush, I'll have a piece of French toast with BUTTER and spices and real eggs. Wonder who will enjoy their breakfast the most? :) Great recipe, loved the spices and butter, easy to make. I cook this in a cast iron skillet over a camp fire when we meet up with friends to go on trail rides on our horses and it is a huge hit! I serve it with BACON and HONEY HAM and skillet potatoes! If it kills me, at least I enjoyed my meals.
I don't believe I have ever given one star before. I could not even attempt to eat this. The flavors were extremely overpowering.
I added a good amount of vanilla extract to the egg wash. That was the only change I made. Both of my kids said this was the best french toast they've ever had. They loved the confectioners sugar on top. HIGHLY suggest you make this in your cast iron skillet--it gets this wonderful crust that can't be beat.
These were great! I usually use Cinnamon while making French Toast but never thought of using Nutmeg, Cloves and Ginger. I would have to say I cut way down on the Cloves as it seemed to over power the flavors!
Well, I made this today for my daughter's birthday breakfast. I made a few changes: I used day old Italian Bread, 1 1/4 tsp. Cinnamon, 1/2 tsp. ground cloves, 1/2 tsp. ground nutmeg, 1/2 tsp. ginger. I also have never made French toast without milk so I added some as well. I didn't use more butter than just enough to fry the French toast. I lightly dusted the sugar. We enjoyed this quite a lot. Thumbs up!
This French toast is wonderful. And a great special occasion treat.
These are very good, although I think they were a little spicy for my 2 year old. I may cut the spices in half next time. I did add a little milk. This made 8 pieces of toast for me, not 15! Perfect amount for our family.
Excellent. I added a little honey to the butter I drizzled over them and they were wonderful! I will use only half the cloves next time because I think 1 tsp overpowered the other spices, but other than that, this is a keeper!
