On a cold winter Sunday, you sit in your spot and gaze outside to the fluffy snow falling over the ground while squirrels play catch.
It makes you crave something warm and sweet for breakfast, to help you match that fuzzy feeling you have inside.
One of the best advantages of living in Canada is having the best maple syrup in the world always handy 🙂
And the best way to enjoy it is with French Toast, especially with a touch of cinnamon.
- 8 slices of toast or any other white bread
- 4 eggs
- 1 cup milk
- 2 1/2 tsp cinnamon
- 1 tbsp brown sugar
- 1 tbsp vanilla extract
- vegetable oil or unsalted butter for cooking
- maple syrup for serving
Cut bread slices into sticks or leave them in one piece, whatever you prefer. Use old, drier bread if you can. It will soak better and won’t get doughy.
Also, bread crust will give it a nice crunch, use the pieces with the crust on them.
In a bowl, whisk together the eggs, milk and vanilla extract. Dip each piece of bread in the egg mixture, turning to coat it on all sides so that it’s well-saturated with the mixture. In a separate bowl mix cinnamon with sugar. Set aside for coating.
Fry in a preheated frying pan with 2-3 tablespoons of oil on a medium heat.
Watch out not to put too many pieces at once, they might stick to each other 😀
Fry until golden brown.
Coat the frying bread in a cinnamon mixture.
Pour as much maple syrup as you like over the toast just before serving and enjoy!
Pro Tip: serve with maple syrup in a cup on the side and pour it over individual toasts to help them stay crispy.
