For the Cream Sauce:

  • 1 cup (240ml) heavy cream
  • 2 tablespoons powdered sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

For Serving:

  • Fresh strawberries, sliced
  • Maple syrup (optional)

Instructions:

Prepare the French Toast:

In a shallow dish, whisk together the eggs, whole milk, vanilla extract, and ground cinnamon until well combined.

Dip each slice of bread into the egg mixture, allowing it to soak for a few seconds on each side.

Cook the French Toast:

Heat a large skillet or griddle over medium heat and add a small amount of butter or oil.

Place the soaked bread slices onto the skillet and cook for 2-3 minutes on each side, or until golden brown and cooked through.

Repeat with the remaining slices of bread, adding more butter or oil to the skillet as needed.

Serve immediately, with maple syrup on the side if desired.

Notes:
