A tasty treat that will satisfy your sweet tooth. Crumbled cornflakes make the texture a little different than most other recipes.

This is really good. It is the closest I have come to copying some terrific French Toast from a Vegas Breakfast Buffet. Read More

I didn't enjoy this recipie b/c the first piece of bread soaked up at least half the mix. The two remaining breads that i was able to moderate the servings a little better were still not good. Read More

I guess I was expecting more of a unique french toast but really this tastes like french toast! My family couldn't even tell it was a new recipe (despite the tiny cornflake coating). It IS very good but everyone already thought this was my french toast recipe. Since I don't think it tastes better than my recipe I won't go through the extra effort to make this again. Still very good. Read More

This was great. I used regular white bread but only dipped the pieces of bread in the egg mixture. Excellent brunch for my husband & I this morning. Read More

The best french toast I had ever tasted! I didn t even use the vanilla extract and only put a tablespoon of syrup in and they still came out delicious. The confectioners sugar made them perfectly sweet enough. And the idea of putting cornflakes in is ingenious.;) Read More

A good overall recipe. I will use thick bread when I make again-regular white bread fell apart-maybe I soaked it too long. I added another egg, but the batter only was enough for 5 slices. Read More

Great recipe! Doesn't taste all that different from regular french toast but still good. I used grape nuts instead of cornflakes and thought it worked well. Read More

I didn't eat the french toast I just made it but my younger brother said it was very good. It seemed average to me. The milk to egg ratio seemed to work well in it. 4 stars. Read More

My husband loved these. I used whole grain bread soy milk and granola instead of corn flakes. He said they feel healthy:) Great recipe for a fast yet delicious breakfast! Read More
