Preheat a skillet (I use cast iron) to low to medium heat. While thats heating, mix up your pancake batter. (homemade or store bought) I mix it in a pie plate and make your batter alittle thinner,so the bread absorbs it better. Add in your vanilla and butter flavorings.
Now take a piece of bread and dip it on both sides and place it in skillet. Cook about 2 minutes on each side or until its golden and alittle crunchy on edges. Fix the remainder of your pieces and then serve with some butter & syrup, or honey, or my Dad loves them with just clear corn syrup. Hope you enjoy!
