IHOP French Toast

Lately I've been into Todd Wilbur's "Top Secret Recipe" books and website. There are so many clones of well-known foods that he's come up with, it's great. I've been enjoying looking at his recipes. Here's one I tried this morning, International House of Pancakes French Toast. Sure, I know how to make French Toast, but this recipe made it into the book for a reason, right? So I thought I'd try it out. For the most part, basic french toast ingredients, eggs, milk, vanilla, but one that I never use, flour. I guess the flour helps to create a thicker coating on the bread, almost like a tender crepe on the surface, keeping the bread from becoming too soggy. I liked it. Paired off with some potato rounds, grapefruit segments, and sweet apple camomile tea, it was a nice breakfast.

IHOP French Toast
2 eggs in a large, shallow bowl.
1/2 c. milk
1 t. vanilla
3 T. flour
1/8 t. salt
Beat the mixtuer with an electric mixer till all the flour is well combined.
Melt some butter on a skillet, dip the bread into the batter, being sure to coat each side well, and cook till golden brown on both sides.
Sprinkle with powdered sugar or topping of choice.
I like my french toast plain without syrup or powdered sugar (although it looks pretty), so I added 1/3 c. sugar and about 1/4 t. cinnamon to the batter so the bread comes out sweet and can stand on its own.

What kind of bread do you use and what brand ?

Any type of bread will work. I like to use the thicker "texas toast" bread but if I have bread that's getting old, I'll use that too.
