Milk and Honey French Toast

Milk and Honey French Toast recipe by Barefeet In The Kitchen
My friend, Donna, from The Slow Roasted Italian, brought me a loaf of her Milk and Honey Bread last week and it was delicious. As soon as I tasted it, I knew it would be perfect for French Toast. I remembered seeing a recipe a while back that mentioned adding flour to the milk and egg mixture for French Toast. I tried that this time and it was an excellent change. It provided for a fluffy French toast with crisp sides and a perfect interior.

Milk and Honey French Toast
(printable recipe)

1/4 cup flour
3/4 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
dash of salt
1 tablespoon sugar
1 cup milk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
3 eggs, lightly beaten
12 slices of bread

In a large bowl, whisk together the dry ingredients. Slowly add the milk, whisking constantly. Add the lightly beaten eggs and vanilla. Pour this mixture into the bottom of a pie plate or another small shallow dish.

Dip each slice of bread into the mixture and let it absorb the egg mixture on each side. Toast on griddle or in pan until golden brown. Whisk the mixture prior to dipping each slice of bread. This will ensure that cinnamon will be on each slice, instead of all the cinnamon being absorbed with the first few slices.
