Ingredients

  • 10 slices brioche, hearty crusty french bread or sourdough*
  • 4 eggs
  • 3/4 cup whole milk
  • 1/4 cup heavy cream
  • 1 Tbsp granulated sugar
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • Butter for griddle
  • Warm maple syrup

Instructions

  1. Preheat a non-stick electric griddle to 375 degrees (this can also be done in a large non-stick skillet or griddle pan over medium-low heat).

  2. In a large shallow dish whisk eggs with cinnamon.

  3. Add in milk, cream, sugar and vanilla and whisk to blend well.

  4. Butter griddle just before you'll be adding bread.

  5. Working with one slices of bread at a time, dip bread into mixture (if using brioche dip quickly, hearty french bread may needs to soak a little longer), flip and dip opposite side.

  6. Place on griddle, let cook until golden brown on bottom, about 2 minutes, then flip and cook opposite side until golden brow, about 2 minutes longer.

  7. Serve warm with maple syrup.

  8. *This is not the soft and fluffy French bread this is the sturdy more solid kind. Cut slices about 3/4 to 1-inch thick.
