Rise and shine for this delicious Cinnamon French Toast! Brown and crispy on the outside and creamy on the inside. The addition of flour brings the a nice crisp texture while cinnamon and vanilla gives a flavor boost.
2tablespoonsbleached all-purpose flour
1/2cuphalf and half
1teaspoongranulated white sugar
4slicesloaf breadthick slices
banana or any fruit you like
To make the custard mixture, whisk together all purpose flour, half-and-half, egg, cinnamon, vanilla extract, sugar, and salt in a bowl until smooth.
Heat a frying pan on the stove over medium heat. Add about 1 tablespoon of butter into the pan. Soak (or dip if using thinner slices) each slice of bread in the mixture. Gently lift the bread so the excess custard will drip and carefully transfer in the pan.
After a few minutes, check to see if the bottom side of the French toast has turned golden brown. If it has, flip the French toast and continue cooking. Transfer to a plate and do the same procedure for the next batch.
Serve warm with maple syrup and banana slices.
(Note 1) For thinner bread slices or generic white sandwich bread, be careful not to soak too much as the bread will disintegrate.(Note 2) Whisk the custard mixture before dipping another slice of bread because the cinnamon rises to the top and will disappear with your first few slices.
