Today I have another French toast recipe for ya. This one you make with yummy cinnamon bread. I used a loaf of cinnamon burst bread from Great Harvest Bread store. I know you all don’t have a Great Harvest near you, so you can use whatever cinnamon bread you can get your hands on. However, I must say it rocks with the cinnamon burst bread from Great Harvest. It is also best if you can score a loaf from the day old section there!
You want to slice the bread into some nice thick slices. You’ll want them around 1/2 inch thick. Now the Great Harvest Cinnamon Burst bread is made into a round loaf. So with those really big slices from the center of the loaf, I cut them in half to make them easier to dip in the egg mixture. You also need to cook this French toast just below medium heat because the sweet cinnamon parts of the bread and burn if the heat gets to high.
I made the egg batter for the French toast the way my mom makes it. The secret ingredient is some sugar. Then, I really like this french toast topped with some fresh banana slices. It really goes well with the cinnamon. It’s just heavenly!
