- 6 slices of toast. You can toast them lightly if the bread is still fresh

- 2 tablespoons of all-purpose flour

- A tablespoon of cinnamon
- A tablespoon of vanilla extract
- 2 tablespoons of butter. Melt it first
- 2 tablespoons of brown sugar
- Mix the flour and the milk together. Do it until the flour is completely dissolved
- Mix and stir cinnamon and vanilla together in a small bowl. Then add it to the flour-milk mixture
- Add the melted butter and brown sugar. Stir it well
- Add the egg yolks. Mix everything until it is well combined
- Pour the batter to a casserole dish. The one with 13 x 9 size would be ideal
- Dip both sides of the bread until it is moist. But be careful, you don’t want it to be completely saturated. The bread shouldn’t be dripping either
- While the griddle is heating up, you can place the bread on top of a cookie sheet
- Add butter to the griddle. Heat it with medium heat
- When the griddle is hot enough, place the bread on it
- Cook until the bread turns golden. Flip it over and cook (the other side) until it also turns golden.
- Serve it hot. Sprinkle it with whipped butter, powdered sugar, and also hot maple syrup.
- If you don’t like cinnamon, you can skip it. Feel free to have it or skip it. But if you skip it, it will taste like the regular vanilla-taste French toast
- You can also use this recipe for your Stuffed French toast recipe. Instead of having only one slice, you have two slices and fill them up with peanut butter or cream cheese. Then you dip them in the batter.
- If you have the stuffed toast, you can have peanut butter and jam, cream cheese with berry, cream cheese and banana, or even Bourbon pecan cream cheese. You can dip the entire bread or cut them first in a half – whether vertically or diagonally. If you choose the latter one, it will form a triangle shape
- Feel free to use any topping that you like for this Cinnamon French Toast recipe, including chocolate syrup, honey, or you can just eat it plain.
