For Sunday mornings we try to do a brunch once a month. The kids eat a small meal before Church and after Mass we indulge in a hearty meal together.
One such meal includes Cinnamon French Toast. Yes, homemade cinnamon french toast. Topped with strawberries & fresh homemade whipped cream.
And everything is right in the world.
What You Need:
20–24 slices of bread: Challah, Easter, Brioche or Texas Toast
1/4 Cup All Purpose Flour
2 Cup Milk (2%)
1 Tablespoon Vanilla
1 Tablespoon Cinnamon
1 Tablespoon Sugar
Pinch of Salt
Makes approximately 20–24 slices of French Toast
You also need a: Griddle or Frying Pan
How To Put It Together:
Add flour to a large wide bowl. You want a large wide bowl (or a pan9because you will dip your bread to soak it in this bowl. Then whisk in each of the following ONE by ONE: your milk, eggs (crack & whisk these in one by one, don’t add the shells even if the crunch is fun resist the urge!), sugar, cinnamon, vanilla, & salt.
Whisk until everything is a beautiful sunshine egg color with swirls of cinnamon brown throughout. Heavenly!
Then dip your toast in. Let it soak up all the goodness in the bowl. Make sure to soak BOTH sides.
Again I highly suggest using a thicker slice of bread. Ideally a thick Challah, Easter or Brioche Bread. If you don’t have a loaf of any of these then a thick cut Texas Toast Bread will work. I like to have bread uncut, then cut it into 1 inch thick slices but you can buy bread that is pre-cut into thicker than average sliced bread.
After you’ve soaked your bread, cook it on a buttered griddle or frying pan until golden brown on the bottom & then flip to cook the top golden brown as well.
Serve with all sorts of goodies. Toppings always make life better.
