Fluffy French Toast

My family can't wait for golden slices of this French Toast to come off the griddle. We prefer the homemade Molasses syrup to any store-bought variety.

    Our family has used this receipt for years! Wonderful, especially with Texas Toast & butter Crisco.

    This recipe is not good fluffy french toast. Whoever rated 5 stars in the reviews must have been family or friends of the creator of the recipe. I made it and it is pancake bread! Just look at the ingredients. If I wanted pancakes then I would make them but I prefer french toast so I was upset with the results. When I looked up how to make fluffy french toast I wanted something like Denny's french toast because there big and fluffy. Not pancake bread! It's either pancakes, or french toast and this recipe is a failure so don't waste your time making it if your expecting french toast.

    My falimy and I enjoyed this recipe. It's like french toast and pancakes in one. I used regular sandwich bread (all I had in the pantry) and I did add cinnamon and vanilla to the recipe. It's just what I always do when making french toast. Will make again. :-)
