Cinnamon French Toast

I made this delicious french toast for lunch today. It was amazing so I thought I would share.

Cinnamon French Toast

What you will need:

1 loaf of bread (I use whole wheat)
Large frying pan and spatula
Vegetable oil for frying


2 large eggs
2 tablespoons sugar
½ teaspoon salt
½ teaspoon vanilla extract (I use bourbon vanilla)
2 cups of milk (I use vanilla almond milk)
1 cup of flour
2 ½ teaspoons baking powder


4 teaspoons cinnamon
½ cup sugar


1.) Whisk together all of the batter ingredients in a large bowl.
2.) Blend coating ingredients in a small bowl
3.) Heat a generous amount of vegetable oil in a large frying pan on medium or medium high heat.
4.) Coat each slice of bread in the batter mixture and place in your hot frying pan
5.) Cook till golden brown on each side checking frequently to avoid burning
6.) When golden remove and place onto a paper towel to drain excess oil
7.) Sprinkle with cinnamon sugar coating, let sit for a few minutes, shake off extra coating back into bowl
     and repeat on the second side.
8.) Repeat until you run out of batter/bread.

Syrup is optional as the cinnamon sugar coating plus a pad of butter makes a delicious sauce!

Bon appetit!!

Getting To Know Team EEAT!
This Week We Are Visiting With Edibles Artist is Angelica from athyme2bcomforted.
Angelica's shop is so different from the rest of the teams; featuring homemade Enchiladas, hummus, salsa's, and Bruschetta! She has told us that her most popular items right now are her enchiladas(see picture below) and tamales (pork tamales pictures above).

She also offers wonderful desert items like her newest item Sopapillas pictured below! If you have never had one, you really do not know what your are missing! "These little deep fried doughy morsels will have your mouth watering. They can be covered in powdered sugar, cinnamon and sugar or honey."

We asked Angelica some questions, and here are her replies!

If you have 24 hrs to yourself what's on the agenda?

I would check into the Camelback Inn here in town, get a massage, then venture out to the pool to soak up some rays where litte umbrella drinks are delivered to me, oh and then snuggle up in that BIG fluffy hotel bed with some room service and watch a movie!!

If you could move anywhere where would it be and why? Whats your favorite thing to make? How did you learn how to make it?

If I could move any where it would be some where tropical, with white sandy beaches, and gentel rolling waves. I love the ocean, it brings me peace!! My favorite thing to make would be my enchilada's, the receipie was from my grandma. When I make them I feel closer to her now that she is gone. It also reminds me of helping my mom in the kitchen, it was one of my dad's fave meals!! So we had them at least once a week, and that is how I learned how to make them.

Angelica is an amazing person and an amazing cook! Check out her Etsy Shop today!
