What is more satisfying on Sunday morning than a plate of French Toast?! Warm cinnamon and tantalizing vanilla flavors enhance this simple French Toast recipe! Ready?! Let’s do this!

This is such a simple and satisfying batter for your French Toast! If you like cinnamon and vanilla flavors you are in for a real treat! It’s breakfast! Make it count!

used use Challah bread, but it’s not already sliced, so I cheat and us pre-sliced brioche bread instead. I love all the pre-sliced brioche bread options you can find in the supermarket now!

I like using a flat dish or deep plate for the batter. Make sure the bread soaks up the batter well, we don’t want a dry French toast. Also, if I’m not seeing enough cinnamon sometimes I will sprinkle a little more on top.

Look at this! Golden brown with a slight crispness on the edges! And the smelll, so heavenly 😇 Okay, I’m drooling just mentioning this 😆

How do enjoy my French Toast?! With butter and real maple syrup of course! I also like to pair it with bacon 🥓 or sausage and a bowl of fresh berries! 🍓🫐 I hope you enjoyed this recipe and follow my other media pages for more food and recipe ideas!
