- 4 large eggs
- 3/4 cup whole milk
- 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
- 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
- 8 thick slices day-old bread
- Unsalted butter
In a wide-bottomed bowl or baking dish, whisk eggs, milk, vanilla and cinnamon.
Heat a large, nonstick frying pan over medium-high heat and melt about a tablespoon of butter.
Dip each slice of bread into batter for about 5 seconds.
Place in frying pan in a single layer, so edges do not touch.
Cook for 2-3 minutes on each side, or until nicely browned and cooked through.
Transfer to a warm oven to hold and wipe pan.
Add more butter and repeat with remaining slices.
Serve hot topped with maple syrup, fruit compote or your favorite topping!
For a rich holiday treat, replace some or all of the milk with eggnog.
