Corn Flakes French Toast Sticks

Damn Delicious has FINALLY gotten a makeover! It was way overdue and as much of a headache it’s been with the sleepless nights and continuous angry fights with CSS coding, I am very happy with it. There’s still some more work that needs to be done so if you receive a 404 error message, please bear with me. You can always contact me if you need a specific recipe.

Now to celebrate the face-lift of Damn Delicious, I decided to share these epic French toast sticks that are absolutely TO DIE FOR . I was inspired by the Corn Flakes crusted French toast from the Biltmore when I stayed there for the CA ambassador trip so the minute we came home, I just had to recreate it.

The Corn Flakes creates such an amazing crunchy exterior base, wonderfully complementing the fluffiness of the bread slices. And turning them into sticks just makes it more fun to eat for both kids and grown-ups!


Preheat oven to 375°F. Whisk together eggs, half-and-half, sugar, cinnamon and vanilla. In a shallow dish, mix together cornflakes and almonds. In a large sauté pan, melt 1 tablespoon butter over medium heat. Dip 2 slices of bread into egg mixture coating both sides, then place each piece into cornflake mixture, pressing down gently and coating both sides. Place in sauté pan and brown for about 3 minutes per side. Transfer to plate and repeat for remaining slices. Bake coated bread for about 10 minutes to finish cooking and crisping.

Melt remaining tablespoon of butter in a sauté pan over medium heat add bananas and caramelize until golden brown. Flip and cook for another 30 seconds add maple syrup, lemon zest, and salt. Reduce heat to low continue to simmer until syrup is heated through. To serve, cut each piece of bread diagonally, top with banana syrup and powdered sugar. Makes 8 servings.
