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.
