King's Hawaiian French Toast

2:52 PM
King's Hawaiian French Toast, thick slightly sweet bread dipped in egg-milk mixture and lay in a hot skillet with melted butter and brown until golden.  With the perfect sweetness of the bread, a little syrup is necessary!

What is it, you see these recipes and you keep thinking you are going to make them and then they are forgotten.

Well, this last Saturday I got in my head to go ahead and make this particular French toast recipe. 

King's Hawaiian French Toast is thick slices of sweet bread that are the perfect base for French toast and takes your taste buds to a new level. This French toast was thick and sweet just like my husband likes it. I will be making it again!are

King's Hawaiian French Toast
Adapted original recipe from: King's Hawaiian Bakery

  • 1 loaf King's Hawaiian Bread
  • 4 eggs
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
  • Butter or oil for frying
  • Maple Syrup 

Slice bread crosswise so that each slice is about 1-inch thick. Cut larger slices into halves or thirds, if desired; set aside.

On medium high heat, heat a large skillet until hot but not smoking with a teaspoon of butter and a teaspoon of oil.  In a shallow mixing bowl, whisk together the eggs, milk, vanilla and cinnamon. Quickly dip slices (do not soak) in egg mixture and lay in the prepared skillet; brown until golden brown and turn over and do the same.

 Continue with the remaining slices.  Keep egg mixture stirred and spices well blended.  Lay browned ones on a sheet pan and place in a 200 degree F. warm oven until all have been cooked.

Sprinkle with powdered sugar and serve with warm maple syrup.
