Birthday French Toast and Raspberries

Today is Mae’s birthday and of course she gets her favorite foods all day! A few things on the menu include: french toast, raspberries, cheese, rice, and pizza:) Everyone deserves to eat what they like on their birthday:)

I realized today that french toast is so comforting. Its like feeding your family this elaborate Saturday breakfast, but it’s so easy. I had the whole breakfast made in about 6 minutes while Jeff took Mae to get coffee. We definitely need to do french toast more often. Oh…and it pretty much is all served at the same time…unlike pancakes.

How do you eat your french toast? In my family, we grew up eating it plain with cinnamon sugar. I think it’s a Pennsylvania thing. But…I definitely am passing the tradition down…Mae ate her french toast with cinnamon sugar and LOVED IT!

About 1 T. butter
Leftover bread, preferably a good loaf from the bakery. I used leftover Italian bread from Mae’s party on Saturday.
2 eggs
1 1/2 c. milk
1 t. vanilla
1/4 t. cinnamon

serve with cinnamon sugar and a side of raspberries:)

In a shallow bowl, beat eggs. Beat in vanilla and milk. Set aside.
In a large fry pan, melt butter and spread to cover the bottom of the pan.
Slice thick bread slices. Dip each side of the bread in the milk mixture…make it really wet, but not dripping. Place in the hot pan. Cook for about 3-4 minutes on each side or until nice golden brown. Serve with a side of cinnamon sugar.
