And now… little different breakfast.
This french toast is a little different, and I loved it! Who knew that cake batter could sweeten and brighten up so many already wonderful things! Cake batter french toast topped with a glaze. It’s a fun spin on the old classic and would be an excellent choice for a special birthday breakfast.
We’ve found that using homemade bread for french toast works best because it’s more dense. Store-bought bread tends to soak up too much of the egg/milk mixture, resulting in a soggy middle. Most bakery breads are dense enough and will work well too.
Mix eggs, milk, cake mix, and vanilla
Cook until golden brown
Glaze Topping and shower of sprinkles
Cake Batter French Toast
- 8 slices bread (I use french bread)
- 2 eggs ( I use large)
- 1/4 or 1/2 cup of milk (the batter should have a consistency like pancakes, so add more milk if necessary)
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 1 cup of dry cake mix..I used Moist Supreme Classic White Cake Mix (but ANY flavor will work …you choose your favorite flavor)
- White Frosting ( I use Whipped Fluffy White Frosting)
or make your own Glaze Topping with:
- 2 cups Powdered Sugar
- 3 tablespoon Milk
- 1 tablespoon Butter, softened
- sprinkles to decorate
For the French Toast
- Heat up up a skillet or griddle to medium heat and then spray with non-stick cooking spray.
- Mix eggs, milk, cake mix, and vanilla. Submerge each bread slice in mixture for about 30 seconds.
- Remove and let excess egg mixture drip off.
- Cook until golden brown (about 4-5 minutes) and then flip over and cook other side.
For the Glaze Topping
Mix until well combined.
Top with sprinkles for festiveness.
It’s also pretty good without the glaze. Just plain and by itself.
