Reviews for Very Vanilla French Toast
"We love French Toast and this is the best recipe I have found. I used French bread and cooked until it got a little crispy. I cut down on the cinnamon as some people said 1/2 tsp was too much, but I will increase the amount I used next time to get the amount right for our liking. Excellent recipe."
"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!"
"Pudding gives it a subtle vanilla taste."
"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."
"This was an epic fail for me. It never really toasted. The bread was mushy. Not good."
"very tasty. i doubled everything but cinnamon. family loved it"
"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...."
"I will try making this again even though it stuck to the pan too. I DID use the cook n serve but had the same results. Maybe some Pam?"
"This has become a weekend staple in our house! We all LOVE it! I am diabetic and use the sugar free cook and serve pudding and it is just as good as the regular cook and serve!"
"I also had the same problem with the pudding sticking to the pan. Will try again with the cook-and-serve pudding, hopefully with better results."
"Its AWESOME... my son loved it and also his friends"
"Do NOT use instant pudding!!all I had on hand was the instant pudding, the flavor was great but it stuck to the pan so bad that you could not flip them.I will definately buy the cook and serve pudding and try this again, it is a great recipe!!!"
"Do NOT use instant pudding !!! I did not have the cook and serve pudding on hand , only the instant pudding. The flavor was great but they stuck to the pan and I had a real mess.I cannot wait to get the cook and serve pudding and make it again...This is a very good recipe."
