It was one of the very first things that I was allowed to cook by myself as a kid. In fact, I think it was another kid that taught me how to make French toast. After discovering how simple it was, I pretty much made French toast every day for the remainder of the 1970’s.
Maybe I over did it back in those days, because for some reason, I have not made it for years. For some unknown reason, I woke up this morning and I wanted French toast. To my delight, it is still easy to make and just as delicious!
It works best with several day old French or Italian bread, thickly sliced, but I just had plain fresh wheat bread. It works, but fresh bread or bread that is too thin tends to fall apart when it soaks in the egg milk mixture.
4 slices of bread
¼ cup milk
1 tsp ground cinnamon
Beat eggs, milk, and cinnamon together until well blended. Pour into a shallow bowl.
Dip each slice of bread into the egg mixture, allowing bread to soak up some of the mixture. Melt some butter over a large skillet on medium high heat. Add the slices of bread onto the skillet and fry until brown on both sides, flipping when necessary.
Serve hot with butter, maple syrup and sprinkle with powdered sugar. Some people like to add fresh berries or fresh fruit, or for carnivores, try some bacon or sausage on the side.
