Cinnamon Sugar French ToastCuisinart Original Recipe
8 slices (preferably thick sliced) cinnamon swirl or cinnamon raisin bread
5 large eggs
1 cup evaporated fat free milk (not reconstituted)
1/4 cup half & half (may use fat free)
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon cinnamon
pinch nutmeg (freshly grated)
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
Preheat oven to 200°F. Place a rack on a baking sheet and place in oven.
Arrange the bread in two 8 x 8 x 2-inch glass baking dishes. Whisk eggs, half-&-half, salt, spices, and vanilla until smooth but not foamy. Pour the batter over bread. Turn the bread over, let sit 5 minutes, turn the bread over again.
Preheat the Cuisinart™ Griddler in the open griddle up on 325°F. When the Griddler is hot (indicator light will turn green), arrange the soaked bread on the hot griddle. Cook until deep golden brown on each side, about 3 to 4 minutes per side. Remove from Griddler™ and serve or keep warm in low oven. Serve with warm Cranberry Maple Syrup.
