But anyways about the food!! My husband went to Seattle for a job interview before we moved to San Diego and ordered corn flake french toast and ever since when he hears or sees french toast he asked when I was going to make it for him at home so I finally did. Now I went all out for him and even made yummy bread just for this in the bread maker the night before, but whatever bread you would normally use for french toast in your house will work great too.
For the bread I used This Brioche recipe found at Food.com.
Ingredients for bread
1 3/4 teaspoon active dry yeast
1 3/4 cups bread flour
2 tablespoons bread flour
3 tablespoons sugar
2 whole eggs
1 egg yolk
1/4 cup water
2 tablespoons water
8 tablespoons butter cut into single tablespoons
Add all ingredients to your bread machine in the recommended order except the butter. Put the butter in 1 tablespoon at a time 10 minutes before the end of the first kneading session. For my machine the first session is only 10 minutes so I let it mix some then started adding the butter 1 tablespoon at a time letting it mix well between the additions. I put my machine on the the basic light setting.
When its finished open your machine but leave your loaf in and let cool for 20 minutes before removing.
Now for the yummy part!!!!
Corn flake french toast!
About 3 cups cornflakes curshed
1 tablespoon sugar
4 eggs (I do one egg per slice of bread)
Mix your eggs and and cinnamon in one bowl and in another your conflakes and sugar.
Dip your bread slices in the egg and the press lightly in to the cornflakes on both sides.
