Sunday Supper - IHOP French Toast
On Sunday evenings we quite often have "breakfast for supper" and I thought I would begin a weekly note with the recipes. I got this recipe from a cooking list online over four years ago. I had recently seen the movie, I Am Sam and in that film, the main character loves eating at IHOP. I had never heard of this place and I assumed it was a local restaurant in the movie. Now, you won't believe this, but just this month I found out it stands for International House of Pancakes, which I have heard of. The people who told me were amazed I hadn't known. :<)
IHOP French Toast
1/2 cup milk
1 teaspoon vanilla
3 Tablespoons flour
1/8 teaspoon salt
6 or 7 slices bread
It calls for French bread, but I just use my own bread.
Slice bread into thick slices.
Beat the eggs in the electric mixer. Add the milk, vanilla, flour, and salt. Be sure all the flour is combined.
Heat a large skillet (I use an electric fry pan). When the surface is hot, add a teaspoon of butter (I use cooking spray) and coat well.
Dip the bread slices in the egg mixture and drop into the pan. Cook approximately 2-3 minutes each side or until golden brown. Repeat until all bread slices are cooked.
Slice bread diagonally (or not) and dust with confectioners sugar. Serve with butter and maple syrup.
I love this recipe. It is one I've used over and over again, and it is always great.
