Fluffy French Toast

(4 servings)

  • 3 large eggs - beaten
  • 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 and 1/2 cups milk
  • 1/2 cup shortening
  • 6 slices of firm bread - cut in half diagonally
Combine eggs, flour, baking powder, sugar & salt in a shallow dish; add 1/2 cup of the milk & blend.

Pour remaining milk in a second dish.

Melt shortening in heavy skillet or electric skillet. Dip bread, one piece at a time, in the milk, then batter. Turn to coat both sides.

Fry till golden brown on one side. Flip, cover skillet so batter will puff & cook until second side is golden.

Makes 4 servings of 3 pieces.

This is my grandma's recipe - many people over the years have enjoyed this french toast. I find that I can get a make a few more pieces than the recipe calls for because there is always remaining batter. Left-overs freeze well, just microwave them for a 1 minute to thaw and pop in the toaster for a bit to get crispy again.

Mr Breakfast would like to thank amydavis70 for this recipe.
