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.

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!

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.
