Ingredients

  • 1 cup milk
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 tbsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 4 cups corn flakes cereal
  • ½ loaf of french bread (cut into 8 slices)

Place the milk, eggs, vanilla and cinnamon in a shallow bowl and whisk well.

In another shallow bowl, add the corn flakes and crush well. Now you could use some fancy mechanism for this, or you could use my method, the “hand crushing” method, it’s super fancy y’all!

Place each slice of bread in the egg mixture. Soak each side for about 15 seconds.

Transfer to the bowl of crushed cornflakes and cover each side of the french toast.
