1.To prepare French toast- Whisk together egg, egg whites, milk, 2 tablespoons sugar, vanilla, 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon and baking powder in a medium bowl until well blended. Place bread slices in a large, shallow baking dish and pour egg mixture over the top; turn to coat evenly. Press a piece of wax paper directly on the bread to cover it, then cover dish with plastic wrap. Refrigerate overnight.
3.To cook French toast- Heat 1 teaspoon oil and 1/2 teaspoon butter in a 12-inch nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add four of the soaked bread slices to the pan and cook until golden on both sides, 2 to 3 minutes per side. Transfer the toast to a platter and keep warm in a warm oven. Cook the remaining slices in the same manner, using the remaining 1 teaspoon oil and 1/2 teaspoon butter.
