Maple Cinnamon French Toast

French ToastFrench toast falls into the “comfort foods” category for me, whether or not it is breakfast time.  This is a fairly quick recipe for making french toast with a slight twist since I really like cinnamon and maple flavors.  You can make the mix the night before if you want and keep it in the fridge until you are ready to use it.


1 egg
1/3 cup heavy cream (I substitute almond milk when I want to be healthier)
1/4 tsp cinnamon
1 tbsp maple syrup
pinch of salt
2 slices thick bread (I use Texas toast)
butter (for skillet)


1.  Whisk the eggs, heavy cream, cinnamon, maple syrup, and salt together.

2.  Heat a skillet on med-high.  When hot (water skitters across), add a small amount of butter to the pan and spread.

3.  Dip both sides of  a slice of bread in the mix, let it sit for a second, then shake off the excess.  Place on skillet and cook until golden brown.  Flip and cook the other side until golden brown.

4.  Serve warm- plain or with toppings (whip cream, syrup, butter, chopped nuts, etc).
