King's Hawaiian Sweet Bread Makes the BEST French Toast!!!

We had breakfast for dinner again, 
King's Hawaiian Sweet Bread French Toast!

This was a last minute dinner.  I planned on making Shrimp and Grits for the first time, but my husband and little one weren't thrilled with that idea.  I know my husband will love shrimp and grits when I do finally make them...oh, and I'm making them soon!  

I decided to make breakfast for dinner, which is always a hit.  I ended up making the BEST French Toast I've ever was that good! 

I wanted to use Challah bread, 

but the store was out, 
so I ended up using this...

I also had a loaf of Italian bread, so I used both.

There was no comparison between the two breads, 
King's Hawaiian Sweet Bread kicked the Italian bread's butt!  

King's Hawaiian Sweet Bread Makes the BEST French Toast!!!
Not too soggy, not too dry, it was just right.

My husband said it was the best French Toast he's ever had!
My oldest said it's better than going to a restaurant!
As for my little one with the egg allergy, I made her egg-free pancakes.

French Toast isn't that pretty but it sure is yummy!}

Here's how I made it...
I made my French Toast a little different...
I used this recipe below:

Fluffy French Toast  Recipe by Bonnie on All Recipes.


  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 3 eggs
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon - *I sprinkled this on both sides instead of adding to the mix
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 tablespoon white sugar - *I used light brown sugar
  • 12 thick slices of bread ~ *I used 1 Hawaiian Sweet Round, sliced into 1-inch thick slices


  1. Measure flour into a large mixing bowl. Slowly whisk in the milk. Whisk in the salt, eggs, cinnamon, vanilla extract and sugar until smooth.
  2. Heat a lightly oiled griddle or frying pan over medium heat.
  3. Soak bread slices in mixture until saturated. Cook bread on each side until golden brown. Serve hot.

*The Hawaiian Sweet Bread slices are huge, so one slice is perfect for a serving.  If you want, you can cut the bread into smaller slices, by cutting them in half.

Thanks for stopping by!

Oh! I bet that would make it taste good. I have to say, I've never heard of making french toast with flour. Very interesting.

Hi Robyn, - I know, I thought same thing when I saw the recipe. I always kept it simple, eggs, milk, nutmeg or cinnamon. This recipe is so good! I love the vanilla! Thanks for stopping by! Hope you have a great weekend! Cheers!
