Cinnamon raisin French toast



It’s a holiday weekend. Yay!

We were supposed to be hiking and snow camping up in the mountains this weekend but thanks to the snowstorm, many roads are closed and there are 50mph winds on the ridge line of the mountain that we had planned to hike up and stay overnight at. Snowshoeing during a blizzard didn’t sound either fun or smart.

So, we’re at home where it’s raining cats and dogs.

No matter where we’re at, a holiday weekend is still a holiday weekend. Let’s celebrate with a scrumptious brunch.

Step 1. The most important ingredient in French toast is the bread. Get good bread!

We picked up this fresh baked loaf of cinnamon bread at a local bakery. Yum-ee! My goodness it smelled so good! It was still so warm that it steamed up the bag.


Then find your toppings. We had bananas and strawberries on hand so that’s what we went with.


Beat two eggs, dredge the bread in the eggs so that the bread is soaked on both sides. Fry in lightly oiled (or buttered) fry pan (I used our cast iron griddle) 2-3 minutes on each side.


Dish it up, sprinkle on a little cinnamon, layer your fruit toppings in between toasts of bread and bust out your maple syrup.

Happy President’s Day weekend!
