French Toast

I'm new to cooking and have a question about french toast. Does anyone have any good advice? Any recipes? Or ideas?

  1. My favorite french toast is made with cinnamon babka.

    I've also tried french toast dredged in cinnamon toast crunch cereal. It added a different texture.

    Welcome to the world of cooking and to chowhound!

    1. my favorite french toast involves dipping strips of challah bread in egg-milk-vanilla bath and then coating with a mixture of corn flake crumbs or rice krispies - it gives it a really nice crunch

      1. If you're new, keep it simple to learn the process/technique. I use this recipe as a base:

        I use Texas Toast bread although challah is actually better.... it's just super expensive at my grocery store.

        1. I second (third?) the challah suggestion, and I like to add a little almond extract to the liquid mixture as well.

          1. Challah is the very best bread for french toast. I don't like it with any coating other than milk, egg, cinnamon, vanilla.
            Don't turn it more than once, let it really brown .
            Real maple syrup or good jam.
