The secret to Denny’s famous french toast is a very light batter coating, rather than the traditional egg and milk custard most people use, and the use of thick cut bread (Texas Toast). You can use commercial bread, with this recipe, if you like, or you can make your own Texas Toast, with one of our fabulous bread recipes. Either way, this breakfast dish is sure to please.
2/3 cup Milk or non dairy sub
2 1/2 Tablespoons Better Batter Gluten Free Flour
1/3 cup Sugar
1/8 tsp Salt
1 teaspoon of Vanilla
1/2 tsp Cinnamon
6 – 8 Slices of bread (you may use commercial gluten free bread or one of our bread recipes, cut into 1/2 inch Texas Toast thickness)
4 Tablespoons Butter or non dairy sub
Powdered sugar (We used Better Batter Corn Free Powdered Sugar, coming soon!)
In a bowl, whisk together the eggs, milk or non dairy sub, Better Batter flour, sugar, salt, vanilla, and cinnamon. Beat until smooth and well combined. This should thicken slightly.
Place the bread into the mixture, turning to coat both sides. For commercial bread, soak each side for about 15 seconds, and for Texas Toast thick bread, soak each side for about 30 seconds.
Heat a heavy skillet or griddle over medium high heat. When the skillet is hot, add a small amount of butter to the pan – about a teaspoon per slice of bread. Place the soaked bread on the skillet and cook 2 to 3 minutes per side, or until golden brown.
Place on a plate and very lightly dust with the powdered sugar, so that the sugar melts into the hot, buttery toast. Serve immediately with syrup
