Are you interested in an easy, delicious breakfast recipe that’s a real crowd-pleaser? This is a family favorite. It is cinnamon swirl French toast. I make this special recipe every family holiday, and my entire family loves it! The recipe is simple and it doesn’t take long to make.


4 large eggs

1 12 cups milk

12 teaspoon vanilla extract

4 thick slices cinnamon swirl bread

1 tablespoon butter

1. In a shallow bowl or baking dish, mix together the eggs, milk and vanilla extract.

2. Add bread slices and let soak, turning once or twice until the egg mixture has been absorbed — about 2 minutes.

3. Add butter to a heated griddle or frying pan and spread.

4. Add the soaked bread slices in a single layer and cook until the bottoms are golden, about two minutes. Flip, and cook until the second sides are golden brown, about two minutes.

5. Transfer the French toast to serving plates and sprinkle with powdered sugar.

Makes: 2 to 4 servings
