Cinnamon Swirl French Toast


We are always looking for new things for our weekend breakfast menu. We generally have family breakfast one of the two days and the other day hubby makes me something special. We saw some yummy Cinnamon Raisin Bread and decided that would make amazing French Toast, and trust me it did! Would I lie to you?????

Cinnamon Raisin Bread (this recipe makes about 8 pieces)
1 TBL vanilla
3 eggs, beaten
3/4 tsp cinnamon, (optional if you want it really cinnaminy)
1/4 tsp fresh nutmeg
1 cup milk

Preheat oven to 170 degrees, place a plate in the oven, you can hold the cooked toast in for up to 30 minutes with no degradation of flavor or texture
Whip the beaten eggs, milk, vanilla, and spices until well blended

Dip each piece of cinnamon bread into the batter mixture, let it sit for a minute or so and place on your greased griddle or non-stick fry pan.

Cook both sides until golden brown, then transfer to the oven while you finish the rest

Serve immediately with butter and warm syrup!
