This is a traditional French toast coated in corn flakes and deep-fried for a fun, crunchy breakfast.
INGREDIENTS (for 6 servings):
- 8 cups vegetable oil for deep-frying
- 6 thick slices white bread
- 2 eggs
- 1 cup milk
- 1 tablespoon white sugar
- 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 2 cups cornflakes cereal
Heat deep-fryer to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
In a large bowl combine eggs, milk, sugar, cinnamon and vanilla; beat well. Place cornflakes in a separate bowl. Dip bread slices in egg mixture and press into cornflakes.
Carefully slide coated bread slices into hot oil. Fry on each side until golden brown. Drain on paper towels and serve hot.
We have determined the nutritional value of oil for frying based on a retention value of 10% after cooking. The exact amount may vary depending on cook time and temperature, ingredient density, and the specific type of oil used.
