French Toast

Who needs a recipe for French toast? I think French toast is second nature to most people, but I discovered and adapted this recipe a few years ago from a Betty Crocker cookbook. I like the addition of flour, which I think gives the French toast more of a crispy texture on the outside. And then the sugar, vanilla, and cinnamon enhance the flavor.

1/4 cup flour
3/4 cup milk
1/2 tablespoon sugar
1/4 teaspoon vanilla
1/8 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon cinnamon
3 eggs
9 slices French bread, each 1 inch thick.

Beat flour, milk, sugar, vanilla, salt, and eggs with a hand beater until smooth. Heat skillet over medium heat or to 375 degrees. Grease skillet with butter. Dip bread in egg mixture. Cook about 4 minutes on each side or until golden brown.
