My grandma loves to write. I am pretty sure I inherited my love of writing from her. She has books and books full of things she has written. I have always admired her and her dedication to her passions. She is a mother of 7 and a grandmother of who knows how many. She always has a smile on her face, and food in the oven 🙂 One of my favorite memories of her is a time when I was at her house and she gave me breakfast in the morning. It was a bowl of cereal topped with a scoop of ice cream. Best breakfast ever. Why not have dessert first thing in the morning, right?
Anyway, when she found out I was doing these recipes, she gave me a few. This one is one she calls Famous Fuller French Toast. It is delicious. Think scone, only without having to make the batter.
For this recipe, you need:
2 cups flour
2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
4 tbsp sugar
1 3/4 cup milk
Alright so first, make the batter. Mix all the ingredients together except the bread and oil. Then, in a electric fry pan or a skillet (I used my Lodge Color Skillet
), heat up enough oil to be able to submerge at least half of the bread (about 1/2 inch). Yes, it’s a lot of oil… but who said this would be healthy?
Dip a piece of bread in the batter. Wait a few seconds and turn it over. Coat it as good as you can with the batter. Then, put it in the hot oil. BE CAREFUL! The oil is HOT and it will splatter. Wear shoes (trust me). After a little while, flip the bread. I flipped each piece multiple times so it didn’t burn. You want to cook it until its gold brown on each side.
That’s it. This recipe can do about 6-8 piece of bread. You can eat them plan or with butter/syrup/powdered sugar. They are super yummy! Enjoy!
