How to Make Best-Ever French Toast?

This easy homemade French toast is best for breakfast and snacks too!
1. First, take a bread, cut it into few slices, I basically cut about ¾ to 1 inch thick, you can use whatever you want or use ready-made sliced bread.
2. Now for preparing the liquid mixture, in a large bowl, egg, cinnamon, milk, sugar, vanilla, cream, salt, pepper, and all these ingredients mix very well, keep in mind that no lumps floating in the mixture.
[ Tips: Though the cinnamon (powder) don’t mix so quickly in the liquid mixture, it’s just floating right to the top while dipping the bread slices, you have to whisk egg and cinnamon first and whisk this very well so that there are no lumps in the liquid.]
3. Now time to dip the slices like pieces of bread in the mixture. Depending on the type of bread dip the bread slices in the batter for 1 – 2 minutes and flip over for another 2 minutes to absorb the mixture in the slices.
[ Tips: If you find that the slices absorb a bit more liquid, you can gently shake the side as you press the sponge.]
4. Take a large griddle or skillet, add some melted butter. Place the dipped bread over the skillet, wait for toast until golden brown. Flip over and toast. Serve hot! Check out for more info here.

For the french toast, you can make this with add some flour to the batter. But…

Why Add Flour to the Batter? Know why?

Flour is a simple ingredient that you can get in your kitchen. The point is, why you use flour in the butter for making the french toast?
Adding flour in the batter to create thickness so that it saves French toast over bread by avoiding just fried eggs. And it forms a crispy crust on the bread. See here the detailed recipes…
