This delicious cake batter French toast is a sweet delicious treat for morning and can even double as a dessert. Here we use Betty Crocker lemon cake mix, but any cake mix flavor can be substituted.

Ingredients

  • 5 slices stale bread
  • 1 Cup dry Betty Crocker lemon cake mix
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/2 Cup whole milk
  • 1 Teaspoon vanilla extract
  • Butter, for frying

Directions

In a medium bowl, whisk together the cake mix, eggs, milk, and vanilla extract.

Melt the butter in a non-stick fryin pan on medium-high. Dip the slices of bread into the cake batter custard. Cook the slices in the frying pan for 2 to 3 minutes per side, or until both sides are a golden brown. 

Serve with powdered sugar, preserves, and syrup. 

Cake Shopping Tip

Be sure to purchase the correct flour a recipe calls for – flours differ in gluten or protein content, making each suited for specific tasks.

Cake Cooking Tip

Insert a toothpick into the center of cakes to test for doneness – it should come out clean or only have a few crumbs clinging to it.
