Deep Fried French Toast
1 cup flour
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup milk
2 eggs well beaten
Texas Toast bread
vegetable oil or Crisco shortening for frying
Heat about 1 1/2 inches of oil to 350 degrees in a heavy bottomed pan or electric skillet. Mix the flour, baking powder, salt, milk and eggs together in a bowl. Slice the bread in half. When the oil is hot, dip the bread in the batter, coating both sides well then place carefully in the oil. Let it fry on one side for 2-3 minutes, check to see if they are browning. When they look pretty then turn over and fry the other side. Place them on a warm plate covered with paper towels.
Serve with any number of syrups: maple, berry, Mrs. Butterworth and a sprinkle of powdered sugar. Eat them while they are hot and crunchy.
