We discovered this recipe in Mexico. We couldn't figure out what made this French toast so delicious until we learned the secret was vanilla—one of Mexico's most popular flavorings. Since then, we've added a touch of vanilla to our waffle and pancake recipes. It makes them all very tasty. —Joe and Bobbi Schott, Castroville, Texas

"Delicious and simple! Only thing I mixed up was using skim milk instead of 2%. My young daughters are picky eaters and were hesitant to try it, so I cut it into french toast sticks and they gobbled it right up. Will definitely be making this one again!!!"

"Simple and easily adaptable to a larger family. I used vanilla almond milk in lieu of regular milk in order to get a more vanilla flavor. I also used a chocolate chip bread for fun and my kids loved it. Each ate at least 2 slices and my 2 year old labelled it Super Awesome and cleaned his plate. Love an easy meal where no one complains. A keeper!"

"I've been using vanilla extract for years, but try maple along with the vanilla extract. I did this when my daughter was small and we had to leave early, she could have her french toast in the car with no mess. I made bunches and just froze them, worked well just dropping them into the toaster. Also, I've been using Madagascar Bourbon Pure Vanilla Bean Paste recently and it is an improvement over the extract. Enjoy!"

"Delicious. Used a tad less sugar, but doubled the vanilla extract. Try almond extract sometime!"
