  • 2 cups milk
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon Salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 8 cups cornflakes, crushed
  • Vegetable oil, for frying
  • 12 slices Texas toast, sliced diagonally into triangles
  • Syrup, whipped cream, and fruit, for serving


  • Preheat oven to 200 degrees. 
  • In a large shallow bowl, whisk together milk, eggs, sugar, cinnamon, salt, and vanilla until well blended. Slowly whisk in flour and baking powder until smooth.
  • Add cornflakes to a second shallow bowl and place next to the batter. Heat 1 inch oil in a heavy skillet to 325 degrees.
  • Working with 1 or 2 bread slices at a time, dip bread in batter and allow any excess to drip off and back in to the bowl. 
  • Roll generously in cornflake crumbs. Immediately fry in oil until golden brown, about 1 minute per side. 
  • Drain on paper towels and transfer to a baking sheet in oven to keep warm. Repeat with remaining bread slices.
  • Serve warm with your favorite toppings such as maple syrup, powdered sugar, whipped cream, fresh fruit, or candied pecans.
