"It had good flavor but an overall mushy texture. I'd probably use the spices and caramel sauce but put the bread on a griddle."

"The first time I made this recipe, I followed the recipe, and used texas toast, everyone loved it, I made it again recently, and thought I would try some of the advice that was written by the reviews to reduce the eggs and milk, it made it too dry, will go back to using all the eggs and milk. Family likes this recipe and it is so easy"

"Regular French toast is as quick and less soggy. The Carmel base is good but makes the toast to wet on the bottom. It might help to put each piece of bread on a cookie sheet for cooking. I believe this could make it more dry."

"This was so good, and nice to prepare the night before and forget about it! I halved the recipe and used only one layer of bread, so used only 2 eggs and less milk."
