Remove the coated bread and allow the excess french toast batter to drip off then place it in the hot skillet.  If you use your cast iron skillet it cooks more evenly and  you can usually fit at least two slices in it.   And of course if you are using a griddle then your can make several cinnamon french toast slices at a time.
