cooking spray, butter or margarine
cinnamon, nutmeg, vanilla if you wish, any or all
bread cut in cubes
1In a mixing bowl, combine eggs and milk.
2Beat 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.
3Slice the bread into cubes.
4Fold 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.
5Let the mixture sit for 2 or 3 minutes, until the bread becomes saturated.
6While 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.
7Set the frying pan on a medium-low heat. Pour in the mixture.
8Pat down any bread cubes that may not be lying very flat.
9Cover the frying pan with a lid, or pizza pan.
10Cook approx. 5 minutes until the egg mixture appears firm on the top.
11Either 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
12Serve hot with butter, syrup, or sliced fruits, or dusted with powdered sugar.
