We get this really great bread from our local co-op store. It is a Portuguese Sweet Bread. The bread is really great for sandwiches but it really makes a nice french toast.
Here is what I did:
I took 3 eggs and beat them in shallow dish, added some heavy cream (I happened to have this open in the refrigerator, but milk will work just fine) and beat until smooth. Add a couple of teaspoons of cinnamon (use enough so that it mixes in) and a splash of pure vanilla. Mix well. Add bread one slice at a time coating each side. Place bread slices onto a heated skillet. Flip bread as it begins to slightly brown.
I served our french toast with canned peaches and maple syrup.
