Sluttishly Easy: Cinnamon-tastic French Toast


Some days just demand a sweet treat to start the day. On such days, my favorite alternative to pancakes is to whip up some super syrupy cinnamon French toast. Serve it with a dollop of stewed apple, a handful of berries, or if you are feeling particularly decadent then pile it up with a serving of crispy bacon. If you have never experienced the taste sensation that is bacon and maple syrup, then you should at least once, trust me.

This is very obviously a special occasion breakfast as it is quite literally dripping with calories, but some days just demand a syrupy start. It is also rather tasty for a tea time treat after a long, hard day when you really need something quick and comforting. I always use white bread, nothing fancy just the generic sliced stuff, as it absorbs the eggy mixture best.

Cinnamon-tactic French Toast
Makes 2 slices


You will need:
  • 2 medium eggs
  • 2 slices of sliced white bread
  • Milk
  • Ground cinnamon to taste
Make it!

1. Whisk the eggs with a slug of milk and a sprinkling of cinnamon to taste. Make sure to use a bowl that you can lay your bread in flat.

2. Place your bread into the egg mixture for a few minutes, turning once, allowing it to absorb plenty of the egg mixture.

3. Heat a small amount of oil, or butter if you are feeling crazy decadent, over a medium heat and fry the egg soaked bread until it is golden brown.

4. Serve the french toast immediately, with lashings of maple syrup and a sprinkling of ground cinnamon.

  3. Not only do I put cinnamon in my French toast, but I also add vanilla extract and pureed fruit, usually ripe banana plus peaches, mangoes, pineapple, whatever I have on hand. It's absolutely gorgeously decadent and a great way to get more fruit!
