One of my first cookbooks was Cooking with Mickey Volume II, and I thought it was great. What could be better than a book full of Disney Resort imitation recipes?
One of my favorite recipes from the book is the puffed French toast that was served at the Crystal Palace in Magic Kingdom. It's basically a French toast dipped in an extra thick dough, fried, and then rolled in a cinnamon-sugar mixture. Sort of like a giant cinnamon sugar donut.
Needless to say, it is excellent. But do you know what is even better? Adapting that recipe to include CORNFLAKES.
I never buy cornflakes for breakfast, so if I'm going to use them in a recipe, I want to make sure I have enough ideas to use an entire box. (If you have something else, just roll small piles of cornflakes into melted chocolate and chill them. Don't waste.) Do you have a recipe for corn flakes? I would love to hear from them!
Instead of rolling the cinnamon-sugar fried french toast as in the original recipe, I simply added cinnamon and extra sugar to the dough. Then add the cornflake topping and fry.
I recommend heating your oven to 200 degrees so you can keep finished parts warm as you complete them. That way, you don't have to feel rushed (and you can even do them 15 or 20 minutes before eating).

Some of my favorite ingredients include maple syrup, whipped cream, or fresh berries. Or all of the above! Candied pecans are also excellent.
