cooking spray, butter or margarine
cinnamon, nutmeg, vanilla if you wish, any or all
bread cut in cubes
In a mixing bowl, combine eggs and milk.
Beat with a whisk, electric beater or blender. Note: The more froth you can create (aggressive beating) in this mixture, the fluffier your french toast will be.
Slice the bread into cubes.
Fold the bread cubes (and optional ingredients) into the egg mixture.You may need to carefully fold the bread cubes a few times, to ensure they are getting thoroughly coated with the mixture.
Let the mixture sit for 2 or 3 minutes, until the bread becomes saturated.
While the mixture is sitting, prepare a frying pan with cooking spray, butter, margarine or oil (any one will do, as long as it prevents the french toast from sticking.
Set the frying pan on a medium-low heat. Pour in the mixture.
Pat down any bread cubes that may not be lying very flat.
Cover the frying pan with a lid, or pizza pan.
Cook approx. 5 minutes until the egg mixture appears firm on the top.
Either 1. flip the french toast with a spatula, to produce a golden brown on both sides. or 2. Continue cooking with the lid on, to give a bread pudding look to your french toast
Serve hot with butter, syrup, or sliced fruits, or dusted with powdered sugar.
