Cinnamon French Toast

I decided to make breakfast for dinner tonight. Sometimes I just need something different and french toast was the perfect meal to make tonight. I usually don't like french toast for one simple reason: EGGS! I hate when there is a layer of scrambled eggs caked on to my bread. When I make it I dip the bread in the batter and then scrape off the excess before cooking it- this helps to prevent this problem. Also, for the bread I used Pepperidge Farms Brown Sugar Cinnamon Swirl bread and that helped make this extra delicious. You could easily use plain bread, but I think thick bread is best. Also with the Pepperidge Farm bread there is already a layer of delicious cinnamon baked in. Can't beat that!

1 loaf of Pepperidge Farm Brown Sugar Cinnamon Swirl bread (or any thick bread)
3 eggs, well whisked
1/4 cup of light cream
3 tablespoons of milk
1 tablespoon of cinnamon, or to taste
2 tablespoons of butter

1- Heat a skillet with the butter to grease the pan. Also preheat the oven to warm, or the lowest heat.
2- In a shallow dish combine the eggs, cream, milk, and cinnamon.
3- Dip one piece of bread into the mixture, coat on both sides. Scrape off excess egg.
4- Cook on the skillet until done and slightly firm on the outside, about 3-4 minutes per side.
5- As each slice is done place it on a cookie sheet in the warm oven until all pieces are done.


  1. Looks delicious! I made cinnamon french toast on Christmas morning and used Giada's recipe. If you love cinnamon, I definitely recommend her cinnamon syrup to pair with the french toast - delicious!

  2. yum! this sounds great for any meal of the day!
