Instructions Checklist
  • Beat the eggs, sugar, and salt together in a mixing bowl. Whisk in the milk, followed by the flour; whisk until smooth.

  • Heat oil in a deep-fryer or large saucepan to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).

  • Soak the bread slices in the egg mixture until the egg has penetrated through to the center of the bread. Wipe off the excess egg. Cook in the deep-fryer several pieces at a time to avoid overcrowding. Cook until golden brown on both sides and no longer soggy in the center, about 4 minutes. Drain the French toast on a paper towel-lined plate before serving.

I wanted my egg "wash" to be a little thicker so I cut the milk back to a cup and a half. That makes it 1/4 cup per egg. I also added two teaspoons of vanilla and a good amount ground cinnamon--that's what I add to all of my french toast recipes. This is seriously like french toast on crack. I used my cast iron skillet to deep fry these and it worked out fabulously. I served these with hot maple syrup. The family thought this was THE BEST french toast they've ever had. Read More

This was very good but had to sprinkle cinnamon and sugar on top then maple syrup to taste better. I may try this again with the powdered sugar instead. Read More

Yum! Not the healthiest but good for a special occasion. My brother LOVED them. I just added a little leavening (baking powder) so they would be fluffier:) Read More
