Fantastic French Toast

This was another Valentine's Day treat Iwhipped up for my lovely boyfriend, Birdy. Once again I was perusing through allrecipes.com and found a recipe for some French Toast. Of course I altered it because It wouldn't be me if i didn't add a little personal flaire. But I always give credit where credit is due, so if you like you can find the original recipe here. Otherwise, read on...

Picture from my Mobile Phone

1/4 cup all purpose flour
1 cup half and half
1 pinch salt
3 eggs
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon vanilla
3/4 tablespoon white sugar
1 teaspoon brown sugar
6-8 slices Challah bread, cut about 1"thick

Optional Ingredients:
Grand Marnier
Irish Cream such at Bailey's or Carolyn's
Bananas and Pecan slices for topping
  1. In a dish, i used  a mid sized baking dish for some extra surface area, whisk all ingredients together until thoroughly combined
  2. Warm a griddle or a frying pan over medium heat for a few minutes until hot. Spray with PAM cooking spray. * remember to re-spray griddle in between slices *
  3. Saturate each slice in the batter and place on frying pan. Cook about 5 minutes on each side or until golden brown and crispy on the outside. Serve hot.
  4. I topped mine with warmed maple syrup, fresh sliced strawberries, and whipped cream. For garnish sprinkle plate or serving dish with a little powdered sugar. 
This was, by far, the best French toast recipe I have used. The Challah bread added a nice touch because it is a sweet egg bread - very tasty! This would also make and excellent base for a bread pudding, or just sliced into a ramekin dish and topped with ice cream.
