Very Vanilla French Toast Recipe

"These French toast slices have creamy vanilla flavor from convenient pudding mix, plus a hint of cinnamon," relates Linda Bernhagen of Plainfield, Illinois. "We like to top them with syrup or powdered sugar and fresh berries." TIP: As a change of pace, try butterscotch pudding instead of vanilla.
TOTAL TIME: Prep/Total Time: 10 min. YIELD:4 servings


  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 package (3 ounces) cook-and-serve vanilla pudding mix
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 8 slices Texas toast
  • 2 teaspoons butter


  • 1. In a large bowl, whisk the milk, pudding mix, egg and cinnamon for 2 minutes or until well blended. Dip toast in pudding mixture, coating both sides.
  • 2. In a large skillet, melt butter over medium heat. Cook bread on both sides until golden brown. Yield: 4 servings.

"Best French Toast I have ever tasted! I've made it with both Texas toast bread and sliced French bread. Both were great! Now I make sure I always have a package of Cook and Serve Vanilla Pudding mix in my cupboard:)"

"My boys loved this french toast. As several others also mentioned, do not, I repeat, do not, use instant pudding. It does not work, at all!"

"Oh and first time I mistakenly used instant pudding so it was really mushy and soft..... So make sure you use cook and serve pudding mix.

Also, I put 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon as the recipe said, even though I love cinnamon I would say it's a bit too much. I would halve the cinnamon next time and also lower the heat but toast it longer to get a more crunchy feeling:D Generally I like my second trial it delicious and a wonderful sensation~~"

"It's really good with Texas Toast, but if you use bread of thinner slices, it would turn out too soft.~"

"Wait, I just realized I used instant pudding instead of cook and serve. That probably makes a big difference :) Maybe I'll try it again with the right ingredients."

"Made this for my 7 yr old daughter, her thoughts is that is was kinda plain tasting and mushy, the bread didn't really get any type of toasting to it.

Will not make again...."
