2 tablespoons flour
1 tablespoon sugar
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
2 cups milk
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 loaf French bread - (16 oz) cut 1 1/2"-thk

Preparation

1
With a wire whisk, slightly beat the eggs. Add the flour, sugar and other dry ingredients. Beat until it's a smooth, thin batter. Gradually beat in milk and vanilla.

Pour the mixture into a 9- by 13-inch baking dish.
3
Dip one side of each slice into the batter; turn the slices over and place them in a single layer in the batter. Push the slices together to make them fit. Cover the dish and refrigerate overnight.
4
About 30 minutes before ready to cook, turn the slices over to soak the other side.
5
Heat a large frying pan or griddle over medium heat. Melt a small amount of butter or margarine in the pan and add as many bread slices as will fit.
6
Pour any of the extra batter over the tops of the slices. Cook for 8 to 10 minutes on each side or until the slices are golden.
