  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla
  • 1 tablespoon orange zest (optional)

1

Slice the bread. You want the slices to be quite thick, around 3/4 of an inch, so they’ll stand up well to the pancake batter. Or, just make it easy on yourself and buy a loaf of Texas Toast.

2

In a large mixing bowl, beat 4 eggs and then slowly whisk in 1 cup of flour.

3

Thin the mixture using the 1 cup of milk. If you use a bit less, your French toast will be on the puffier side–fun!

4

Mix in the 1 tablespoon brown sugar and 1 tablespoon vanilla. While the 1 tablespoon orange zest and 1/4 teaspoon ground ginger are optional, I highly recommend adding them. These ingredients keep this somewhat rich recipe on the lighter side. If you mix in the orange and ginger, let the mixture stand for about 30 minutes to absorb the flavors.

Plop the pancake-dipped slice onto the griddle and cook until it is golden brown on both sides. The bread is ready to flip when the edges look dry and the batter begins to bubble, just like regular pancakes.
