French toast has been a long time favorite of mine. Even on very sleepy mornings, mom could always get me out of bed with the promise of the fluffy, eggy, spiced toast. I don’t know what recipe she used (a post for another day perhaps) but here is mine.
2 teaspoons sugar
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/8 teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg
Pinch of salt
Splash of vanilla
1/4 cup heavy whipping cream
12-16 pieces of bread
Preheat griddle to medium heat. In a shallow baking dish whisk together all ingredients, except for whipping cream and bread, until well combined.
Whisk in whipping cream. Grease griddle with a little butter or cooking spray. Dredge slices of bread in egg mixture and place on griddle. Cook for around 2 minutes or until golden on the underside. Flip and cook for about another 2 minutes. Serve hot, topped with your favorite fruit and whipped cream or butter and syrup.
