“I first ate this French toast in a coffee shop in Galveston, Texas. After I'd tried it I couldn't wait to come up with my own version. It's great for a late brunch; especially when topped with syrup, fresh strawberries and whipped cream”

Definitely the best french toast I have ever eaten. I made fresh cinnamon/brown sugar bread and sliced it thick. It turned out great. Don't be tempted to not use the corn flakes! They add a lot to the recipe.



Awesome recipe !



I used Challah bread and Raisin Bran Crunch (minus the raisins) and it came out great. The children loved it and they didn't even want syrup until I offered it to them (silly me) The outside was crisp and the inside moist. Loved it!
