recipe adapted from Better Homes & Gardens New Junior Cookbook
- 4 slices bread (stale bread is great for this!)
- 2 eggs
- ½ cup milk
- ½ teaspoon vanilla extract
- ¼ teaspoon salt
- 2 dashes ground cinnamon
- 2 tablespoons butter, plus more for serving
- syrup, for serving
- fresh fruit, for serving
- powdered sugar, for serving
In a bowl, beat eggs with a fork until eggs are frothy. Add milk, vanilla, salt, and cinnamon and beat until well combined. Pour mixture into a pie plate.
Put 1/4 of the butter in a skillet over medium-low heat.
Dip one slice of bread into egg mixture, then turn it over to coat the other side. Let sit for a few second and put bread into the skillet. Cook until bottom is golden brown, about 2-3 minutes. Flip and cook the other side for another 2-3 minutes. Repeat until all the french toast is cooked.
Serve warm topped with maple syrup, butter, fresh fruit and a light sprinkling of powdered sugar.
