French Toast

IHOP Copycat Recipe

2 eggs, beaten
1/2 cup milk
1/8 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon vanilla
3 tablespoons flour
6 slices of thick sliced French bread

First beat eggs, then add remaining ingredients with electric mixer. Dip both sides of bread and place in hot buttered pan. Flip over when browned. Serve with Coconut Syrup.

Coconut Syrup
7-8 tablespoons butter
3/4 cup buttermilk
1 cup sugar
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon coconut extract

Place butter, buttermilk and sugar in a pot. Then turn stove on medium and stir until butter melts and sugar dissolves. Bring to a boil and boil one minute. Remove from heat and add soda and flavoring. It will bubble up; just continue to stir and give it a few minutes for the 'fizz' to reduce before serving.

IHOP also has a variety of French Toast flavors made with brioche bread. The flavors are:

  • Bananas Foster topped with a classic New Orleans sauce made with caramelized bananas in a buttery brown sugar glaze.
  • Very Berry topped with sweetened blueberries and strawberries 
Both of these are dusted with powdered sugar and topped with whipped cream
  • Cinnamon Swirl topped with cinnamon roll filling and cream cheese icing
