A basic dipping mixture for French toast usually includes milk, eggs, and cinnamon, but feel free to add any additional spices
you like. Combine them in a shallow dish, stirring with a whisk.
Note: A sturdy bread is essential when making French toast. Bread sliced too thinly tends to get mushy and fall apart after soaking in the egg-mixture.
Dip bread slices in the egg mixture, and let them stand 20 seconds per side. Don't let the bread stand for too much longer since it could result in mushy toast.
You can coat the pan with cooking spray, if you like, or use butter to add rich flavor. Use about 1 tablespoon per batch, and melt it in a large skillet over medium-high heat.
Place bread slices in pan. Unless you're cooking for a small number, you'll need to cook the toast in batches.
