Equipment

  • Shallow dish that fits a piece of bread
  • Frying pan
  • Whisk or fork
  • Spatula
  • Aluminum foil, optional

Ingredients
  

Egg Mixture

  • 1 egg
  • cup milk
  • 1 tsp. sugar or honey
  • ¼ tsp. cinnamon, or less to taste
  • dash nutmeg
  • dash salt

Additional Ingredients

  • butter for frying
  • 6 slices bread
  • maple syrup
  • powdered sugar

Instructions
 

  • In a shallow dish, mix together the ingredients for the egg mixture with a whisk or fork until well beaten.
  • Heat frying pan to medium heat.
  • Put a slice of butter in the frying pan, moving it around to coat the pan as it melts.
  • When butter is melted, quickly dip a slice of bread in the egg mixture on both sides and place into the hot frying pan. **
  • Brown both sides of the bread for 1-2 minutes on each side.
  • When the bread has reached a golden brown color on each side, remove from pan and put on a plate covered by foil (optional) to keep it warm.
  • Add another piece of butter to the frying and repeat the last 3 steps with each piece of bread.
  • Serve with maple syrup and a dusting of powdered sugar.

Notes

  • ** Be careful not to leave the bread soaking in the egg mixture or it will soak up all of it and you won't have any mixture left for the other pieces of bread!
  • Note that this only makes 6 pieces of bread, enough for 2 people to eat. I usually double or triple the recipe for my family of 4.
