Cornflake crusted french toast is a delicious and easy breakfast recipe that takes traditional french toast and gives it a crispy twist!
I’m so excited to share this Cornflake Crusted French Toast recipe for 3 reasons:
- I love brunch!
- I love french toast!
- This recipe was inspired by my favorite brunch spot in LA, Blu Jam Cafe!
If you’re a fellow french toast lover and you haven’t tried crispy french toast yet, you have to try this recipe!
The inside of the french toast is light and pillowy, while the outside has a delicious crispy crunch, it’s basically taking a good thing and making it even better!
- 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.
Heat a large skillet over medium heat. Spray with cooking spray.
Add two pieces of french toast to the skillet at a time and cook for 4-5 minutes per side.
Serve with fresh fruit, if you’d like and top with maple syrup or powdered sugar.
Yes, that is in fact a picture of me “making it rain” powdered sugar!
