If you’ve followed me for any length of time you will know that I love to make french toast. I make it regularly when I make my homemade white bread; so making cinnamon raisin bread meant french toast was inevitable. To my surprise, the bread was so much more flavorful and complex than normal french toast. I also really enjoyed the flavor the cut raisins gained after being cooked. They added a beautiful sweetness to the dish, while also adding new texture and some fruit! This recipe makes 6-8 slices of french toast.
- In a large frying pan, heat 1/2 Tbsp butter over medium heat.
- In a large mouthed bowl, mix together 1 egg, 1/4 cup milk, 1 tsp cinnamon, 1 tsp sugar, and 1 tsp vanilla extract. Whisk until egg is homogeneous. Slice 6 slices of cinnamon raisin bread.
- Coat the bread 15-20 seconds per side in egg mixture. Transfer straight to heated frying pan. Cook on each side for 3-5 minutes. You can flip as needed, they are done when they are golden. Top with butter and syrup when serving.
