  • Melt butter in a non-stick skillet over medium heat. Add bread slices in a single layer and cook until golden brown, about 3 minutes per side.

Cook's Notes:

Top bread with more cinnamon, nutmeg, and clove to serve, if desired.

Vegetable oil or cooking spray can be substituted for the butter.

Vanilla extract can be substituted for rum extract.

Wheat bread can be substituted for the white bread, if desired.

This can also be cooked in an electric skillet.

Made it for Christmas morning. My boyfriend and I both thought it was interesting it wasn t bad but probably won t try this again. I think the rum extract was a little too much. Maybe cut it down to one teaspoon? I made it with wheat bread and it was fine Read More

If it was only me sting this it would get 5 stars. My husband said it was a bit sweet and my son said it is not the regular. What do they know... I added whip cream to top it off and I loved every bite. Read More

Oh my this was good. I served mine topped with a little whipped cream. I also used my usual seeded bread rather than white bread and used a combination of rum and vanilla extract rather than all rum. Everyone in the house enjoyed this - will make again. Read More

I loved this perfectly spiced french toast! My 19 month old liked it too. I even used ww bread and reduced the salt to 1/4 tsp (1tsp would have ruined it) and brown sugar instead of white. Thanks for sharing your recipe Read More
