Cinnamon Raisin Bread French Toast

Why didn’t I think of this before? French Toast made even more delectable by using fancy bread? How had this not occurred to me earlier?! Don’t waste another weekend breakfast without this dish in your life. The extra sweetness from the cinnamon and raisins almost makes syrup unnecessary. I could just pick up a slice and eat it with my hands! And it’s good cold too. Oh, is it good cold. French toast tastes like Saturday and Sunday morning to me, and this version makes it taste even more like dessert!

Cinnamon Raisin Bread French Toast
Makes 6 Servings
Total time: 20 minutes

1 loaf cinnamon raisin bread, sliced
4 eggs
1/2 cup milk
1/2 tsp vanilla
Pinch salt
Tbsp butter
Maple syrup for serving
Makes 6 servings

1. Mix eggs, milk, vanilla, and salt and pour into a large plate.
2. Lay the bread in the egg mixture and flip to coat both sides. 
3. Melt about 1/4 Tbsp of butter in a pan and cook a few French toast slices over medium-low heat until golden brown, about 1 minute on each side. Repeat until the whole loaf is cooked. Serve with maple syrup and enjoy!

If you are able to slice your own cinnamon raisin bread, thick slices work best for french toast! 

Mix together the milk, eggs, vanilla, and a pinch of salt for the batter.

It's easiest to flip the bread in the batter if it's in a large plate!

Coat both sides of the bread in the batter. 

Cook in a little bit of melted butter on both sides...

Until the french toast is golden brown!

I really wish I had some powdered sugar to put on top! Serve with syrup and devour. There's something about a special big breakfast on the weekends. Lounging around in pajamas for way too long, drinking coffee, and eating a decadent breakfast that you might not have time for during the week - make some cinnamon raisin bread french toast and you'll be one happy camper!
