Cinnamon French Toast

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%)

6 Eggs

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.
