Full Answer

To make the batter for the French toast, combine 1/3 cup flour and 1/3 cup sugar along with 1/4 teaspoon salt and 1/8 teaspoon cinnamon. Add 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg powder to the dry mixture to increase the flavor. Pour 1/4 to 2/3 cup of whole milk into the dry ingredients. Whisk continuously.

Whisk four eggs in another bowl. Stir in the whisked eggs with 1/2 teaspoon vanilla into the combination of dry ingredients and milk. If the batter forms lumps, use a blender or processor to make it smooth.

Bring a skillet to medium-high heat or a griddle pan to 325 to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Coat the skillet or the pan with butter or canola oil. To prevent the butter from burning, reduce the heat. Next, dip each side of the bread slices in the batter, and place on the skillet or the pan. Dip the bread in the batter in batches to prevent it from becoming too soggy.

Cook both sides of the slices for approximately 1 1/2 to 2 minutes. Serve the French toast with butter, powdered sugar or maple syrup.
