Better Basic French Toast

This takes simple french toast to the next level.  Adapted from my friend Miquelle's recipe.

8 slices of whole wheat bread*
2 T butter, melted
1 cup milk
1 large egg
2 T sugar
2 tsp vanilla
3/4 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 cup flour

Heat oven to 200 degrees.  Arrange bread on a wire rack set over a baking sheet and bake until the bread is slightly dry about 15 minutes.

While the bread is baking, whisk together melted butter, milk, egg, sugar, vanilla and cinnamon in a medium bowl.  Slowly whisk in flour until smooth.  Pour batter into a large shallow dish or pie plate.

Soak each piece of bread in the batter about 30 seconds per side, allowing excess to drip back into the dish.  Cook on a hot skillet (even better cooked on a hot skillet with butter).  Cook until golden brown on both sides about 2-3 minutes per side.


*Note: Homemade bread of something sliced thick is amazing, but regular sandwhich bread works too.  There recipe might give you a couple of extra pieces with storebought sandwich bread.
