French toast is one of my favorite comfort breakfast (and sometimes dinner, hey, why not!) foods. I don’t know what it is, but the thick white bread mixed with the eggy milk flavor with the cinnamon, vanilla and maple syrup is so good. This reminds me of my childhood so much because french toast was always made for breakfast in our house. I like to eat my french toast with syrup and powdered sugar, and bananas on the side, but you can come up with whatever you like. You can even skip out on the cinnamon, nutmeg and vanilla and just do it simple! I absolutely love all of these flavors together so this is the recipe I use.
- 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
- 2 tablespoons sugar
- 4 tablespoons butter
- 4 eggs
- 1/4 cup milk
- 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 8 slices challah, brioche, or white bread
- 1/2 cup maple syrup, warmed
- In a small bowl, combine, cinnamon, nutmeg, and sugar and set aside briefly.
- In a 10-inch or 12-inch skillet, melt butter over medium heat.
- Whisk together cinnamon mixture, eggs, milk, and vanilla and pour into a shallow container such as a pie plate.
- Dip bread in egg mixture.
- Fry slices until golden brown, then flip to cook the other side.
- Serve with syrup.
