SO HOW'D IT GO?

Just had this, and it was yummy.
Not sure what french toast is really like as I never had it, but I'll be having this again.
These were nice and crunchy and not soggy. I didn't expect this to be the case as I used thick sliced and vedry fresh bread, but it was great.
Thank you for a good brunch food!

I took other suggestions and left out the sugar and I added only a teeny pinch of nutmeg.  To make them more crunchy I added a some room temperature tahini for a slightly nutty flavour.  I also reduced the heat and increased the cooking time.  I'll definatly make these again!

I made this today and it turned out deliciously. Slightly crispy on the outside, tender inside, and not soggy at all. I halved the recipe, and because I used vanilla soymilk, I decided not to add extra sugar, vanilla or nutmeg to the batter. I found that I had enough batter to cook three slices of french toast.  I think the trick to not having soggy french toast is as follows: Make sure your bread slices are thin, and at least slightly stale. Dip them briefly in the batter - do not let them sit and soak. Cook the french toast for a long time over low heat - this may even take slightly longer than the recipe specifies (maybe 5 minutes per side?) but it's worth the wait. Let them cook until lightly browned and they will be crispy. Anyways, kudos to the author of this recipe for figuring out a delicious vegan french toast! The other recipes I've tried all had banana and I've had problems getting those ones to cook evenly.

By far the easiest and least soggy French Toast I have ever made, I left out the nutmeg and added about a Teaspoon of Ener-G egg replacer.  Turned out light and flavorful with just the smallest crunch to the edges.

with the corn starch they wern't the usual soggy french toast sticks, great recipe!

i was somewhat dissapointed in the soggy outcome, guess i got my hopes up for something... crunchy?  regardless, a very tasty reasonable facsimilie of traditional french toast.  i halved the recipe, and used natural flavor 'veg' powder to sub the flour, and homemade gingerbread for the toast.  spread with fig preserves from the lady down the street, these made an excellent snack.

These are nice - the cornstarch pulls its weight here.

Because I like to dip in syrup, I prefer these minus sweetener, cinnamon/nutmeg, and the extracts - although I did toss in about a tbsp of marzipan (almond paste) and blend it up into the mixture for a light almond flavour and a little extra crunch.

These are good I just recommend omitting the nutmeg the flavor is just too strong and does not go well with french toast.

I didn't make sticks with this but just regular french toast (with stale french bread). I added 1/4 tsp egg replacer, 1 tsp vanilla soy protein powder, and used less nutmeg (1/8 tsp?). It was very good. I don't know what real french toast tastes like but my non-vegan roommate called this a "cousin of french toast" and gave it two thumbs up. With the bread I used it made about 6 slices.
