There is nothing more classic than french toast in the morning. This is really your basic french toast, but here are a couple key things to make it extra special. Be sure to use authentic french or vienna style bread, thickly cut to absorb all that great batter. Almond Extract, Vanilla and my staple of brown sugar round out this traditional recipe with all the extra accents that make this truly memorable.
