Cinnamon French Toast

You can use any flavoring extract in place of the vanilla. You can also grate citrus zest and whisk it into the eggs to make flavored French toast. This recipe can easily be doubled.

Serves: 2


  • 3 Tbsp. vegetable oil
  • 3 large eggs
  • 3 Tbsp. whole milk
  • 1 tsp. ground cinnamon
  • 1⁄4 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 6 slices bread
  • 1 Tbsp. butter
  • 3 Tbsp. maple syrup


  • Place a skillet over medium heat and add 1 tablespoon of vegetable oil. While the skillet heats crack the eggs into a wide, shallow bowl and whisk in the milk, cinnamon, and vanilla extract.
  • Once the skillet is heated and the egg mixture is thoroughly combined, dip the bread slices into the mixture so each side is coated. Swirl the oil in the skillet if necessary so the bottom is evenly coated. Place two slices of dipped bread in the skillet.
  • Let the bread cook for 2 to 3 minutes on each side, or until the bread is golden brown. Place on a plate and keep warm while repeating with the remaining slices of bread.
  • Serve warm with butter and maple syrup.
