Vanilla Cinnamon French Toast

Vanilla Cinnamon French Toast - ButterYum

I don't know how the weather has been where you live, but it's been a bit strange here. Warm day, cold day, rain day, snow day.  Crazy.  We'll have temps in the 60s later this week, but this morning we awoke to a blanket of ice on everything.  Of course ice equals no school, much to the delight of my teenagers.  They took advantage of their extra time by sleeping in.  I took advantage of my extra time of having them home by making a breakfast that would normally be reserved for the weekend.  This recipe is an adaptation of one given to me by one of my sisters years ago - we love the warm hints of vanilla and cinnamon.

Ingredients

Cinnamon Sugar:

  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 2 teaspoons granulated sugar

  • 1/4 cup all purpose flour

  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon fine salt
  • 3 large eggs
  • 3/4 cup milk
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • Additional Items Needed:  1 loaf crusty bread, sliced 1/2-inch thick, nonstick spray, and salted butter

Directions 

  1. To Make the dinnamon sugar, combine cinnamon and sugar together; set aside.
  2. To Make the batter, use a blender or food processor to combine the flour, sugar, cinnamon, salt, eggs, milk, and vanilla; blend thoroughly (the dry ingredients tend to clump together if you mix them by hand).  
  3. Pour the batter into a shallow dish.  
  4. Soak bread in batter for about 30 seconds per side.
  5. Preheat cast iron skillet over medium heat.  
  6. Spray with nonstick spray and add a tablespoon of butter.  
  7. Cook bread on each side until brown; repeating batches until all the batter is used up.  
  8. Serve French toast with butter and cinnamon sugar.
