Weekend breakfasts are always special.......since the kids are home and they all want to help in the kitchen..... Today's recipe is a simple french toast with a twist. 

I love anything with cinnamon in it. But the kids hate if your kids are anything like mine you might want to skip the cinnamon. 

You don't wanna skip the maple syrup................I'm salivating as I type........dunking the French toast in maple syrup and popping it into your mouth is the highlight. C'mon guys.............. Don't judge me .................its the weekend!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

eggs - 2
milk - 3/4 cup
vanilla essence - 1/4 tsp
white bread, cut into 1 inch cubes  - 3/4 loaf
cinnamon powder - 1/4 tsp(optional)
sugar - 1/4 cup
salt - a pinch
butter - to grease
maple syrup to dip

  • In a wide shallow bowl, mix together the sugar and cinnamon and keep aside.
  • In another bowl whisk together the eggs,milk and vanilla essence and salt
  • Keep your bread cubes ready 
  • In a non stick skillet on low flame, heat a blob of butter,  quickly dip each bread cube separately in the egg mixture and place them on the skillet. Make sure to only dip. Don't soak.
  • Keep turning the cubes around so it browns evenly on all sides.
  • After its done, drop them straight into the sugar mixture. Toss them in the sugar mixture till all sides are coated in the sugar.
  • Repeat with the next batch, remembering to grease the pan with butter each time.
  • Serve with maple syrup ............(DUNK) ;)

  • Don't soak the bread cubes in the egg/milk mixture . It will end up uncooked in the middle. So quickly dip and place on the buttered skillet.
  • Using slightly stale bread will help as they dont 'soak' up the milk.
