Old Fashioned French Toast

When I was little, my mom would always make my brother and I french toast the morning we had a special event. Whether it was a school test or a big sport game, the french toast always hit the spot. This is a sweet and delicious recipe that can't be beaten.

Recipe yields 6 slices

6 slices of bread
1/2 cup of heavy cream (I swapped it for lowfat milk to watch a few grams of fat)
2 large eggs
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1 tbsp ground cinnamon
1/2 cup light brown sugar

In a medium bowl, whisk together eggs, cream, vanilla, cinnamon and brown sugar. Whisk until sugar has dissolved in the liquid.

Grease a medium skillet with a pat of butter on medium-high heat. One slice at a time, coat the bread with egg mixture making sure both sides are completely covered and place on the heated skillet.

Cook for 3-4 minutes and then flip to cook the other side. The bread should be browned and begin to dry up, it should not be wet and mushy. If it is still soft, it is not ready to flip and continue to cook on the same side.

After you flip, cook for an additional 3-4 minutes on the other side. When it is done, remove to a plate and top with butter and maple syrup. Serve with a large glass of juice and enjoy!
