Cinnamon French toast for a superfood breakfast

A good cinnamon French toast recipe works best when you use thick slices of bread. I’ve got 2 recipes for you to try so you can choose which one you like the best. Cinnamon is known as a great anti-inflammatory and it can lower cholesterol too.

Fluffy Cinnamon French Toast
The added flour in this version keeps your dish light and fluffy (no soggy French toast here) and doesn’t use that many eggs.

  • 1/4 cup flour
  • 1 cup milk
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 tbs brown sugar
  • 12 slices of thick bread

Whisk milk into the flour, then keep whisking in the eggs, cinnamon, vanilla and sugar until you have a really smooth batter. Get a large frying pan or skillet heating up over medium heat with a little oil or butter. Soak your slices of bread in the batter until they are heavy with it, and then fry on both sides until the piece is all golden brown on the outside, and cooked through on the inside. This should make about 12 slices.

Classic Cinnamon French Toast
If you’re not a fan of the thicker flour batter, then stick with the classic recipe. You’ll need more eggs though.

  • 6 eggs
  • 3/4 cup milk
  • 3/4 tsp vanilla
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 6 slices of thick bread

Whisk all the ingredients together to make a batter, then dip each slice of bread. Don’t let it soak with this one. Just a quick dip to coat. Fry on a griddle until both sides are cooked and golden brown. This recipe makes 6 slices of toast.
