Rhelda’s French Toast

June 7, 2011 § Leave a comment

As a child, french toast was one of my favorite breakfast time eats.  I always had to eat it with cinnamon and granulated sugar sprinkled on the top – ALWAYS!  Essentially, it was cinnamon sugar french toast.  As an adult, I like my french toast with many different toppings; however, I still crave the taste of cinnamon on it.  So to meet my cinnamon craving, I created this recipe. 

Rhelda’s French Toast


  • 6 eggs
  • 1 cup half and half or milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • pinch of salt
  • 1 loaf sweet french bread
  • 1 tablespoon butter


Slice the french bread into 1″ thick pieces.  Set aside.  In a bowl, combine the eggs, milk, cinnamon, vanilla and salt.  Beat together until all ingredients are incorporated well.  Pour mixture into a large casserole dish (I use a 15″ x 10″).  Place 8 slices of bread on top the mixture.  Let soak for 30 seconds, then turn bread over to soak the other side.  Let stand in dish for 20 minutes.

Melt butter on griddle or in fry pan.  Place soaked bread slices onto griddle.  Cook on medium/low heat.  Turn over once first side browns up.  Cook second side until browned.  Remove from griddle.  Dust with powdered sugar.  Serve with syrup, preserves, puree or…SUGAR?! 🙂 

Serves 4
