Cinnamon Swirl French Toast

Cinnamon Swirl French Toast

By the end of the week my cinnamon swirl bread was no longer as fresh as it had once been and that meant that it was time for French toast. French toast is a dish where bread is dipped in an egg mixture and then fried until golden brown. It can be a savoury dish but more commonly it is served as a sweet dish and I enjoy smothering it in maple syrup. French toast is super easy to make and it takes almost no time at all. You simply mix some eggs and milk, dip the toast in, fry it up and then top as you like. This cinnamon swirl French toast was the perfect end to an amazing cinnamon swirl bread!

French toast is amazing! I normally sprinkle mine with cinnamon sugar so I like the fact that the cinnamon is already in the bread here.

Mmm, I was thinking french toast would have been awesome with that bread. I haven't had french toast in so long, and that looks so good :)

This is probably the best way to have french toast - with a cinnamon swirl in it. It looks delicious, as always.

Kevin, when I saw your recipe for cinnamon bread, French toast was my first thought! I didn't have time this week to bake fresh bread, plus it was close to 100 degrees here in AZ...so I bought some cinnamon swirl bread and made French toast! Can't wait to see what's next!

One time I had French toast at a diner made from sliced cinnibons. It was way too much, but this looks PERFECT.

Helene said...

Oh my totally delicious Kevin!

Oh dear gawd!!! that looks so freaking good! I may try this!!

Do you think you could sub the milk for soy milk?

I'm trying it now anyway, but I'm not sure how it will work out. Here's hoping for the best!

Kevin said...

Sand: I have not tried using soy milk but it should work.
