This easy french toast recipe has the perfect ratio of milk to eggs, and a bit of cream gives it a delicious richness. Plus it has plenty of vanilla and cinnamon for a flavor no one will be able to resist.
Ready in: 22minutes
10slicesbrioche(or hearty, crusty french bread or sourdough)*
1 1/2tspground cinnamon
Butter for griddle
Warm maple syrup
Preheat a non-stick electric griddle to 375 degrees F (this can also be done in a large non-stick skillet or griddle pan over medium-low heat).
In a large shallow dish, whisk eggs with cinnamon.
Add in milk, cream, sugar and vanilla and whisk to blend well.
Butter griddle just before you'll be adding bread.
Working with one slice 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.
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.
Serve warm with maple syrup.
*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.
