cup Gold Medal® all-purpose flour
1 1/4
cups milk
2
teaspoons ground cinnamon
1
teaspoon vanilla
2
eggs
10
slices sandwich bread, cut into thirds
  1. In 2-quart saucepan, mix sugar, 3 tablespoons flour, 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon and the nutmeg. Stir in cider and lemon juice. Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, until mixture thickens and boils. Boil and stir 1 minute; remove from heat. Stir in butter; keep warm.
  2. Heat griddle or skillet over medium-high heat or electric griddle to 375°F. Grease griddle with cooking spray, vegetable oil or shortening. (Surface is ready when a few drops of water sprinkled on it dance and disappear.)
  3. In shallow bowl, beat all French toast stick ingredients except bread with fork until smooth. Dip bread sticks into batter; drain excess batter back into bowl.
  4. Place bread sticks on griddle. Cook about 4 minutes on each side or until golden brown. Serve with warm syrup.
