French Toast's just French Toast, right?? Wrong. You'll think you've died and gone to heaven.

8 slices high-quality bread
2 T. unsalted butter
1 c. milk
1 egg
2 T. sugar
2 t. vanilla
3/4 t. cinnamon
1/4 t. salt
1/2 c. flour

Adjust oven rack to middle position and heat oven to 200. Arrange the bread on a wire rack set over a baking sheet and bake until slightly dry, about 15 minutes.While the bread is in the oven, melt 2 T. of butter and whisk it together with the milk, egg, sugar, vanilla, cinnamon, & salt in a medium bowl. Slowly whisk in the flour until smooth.Transfer 1 or 2 pieces of bread at a time from the oven into the batter & soak both sides. Cook on a nonstick skillet or griddle until done, about 2 1/2 minutes per side.
