French Toast Recipe With
Delicious Baked Cinnamon Twist

This cinnamon french toast recipe is a great Saturday morning casserole breakfast with eggs, milk, baguette and a sweet cinnamon spread. As fat as recipes for breakfast goes, this is a real tasty variation from a more traditional french toast recipe that your family can enjoy any time of the year. Even from scratch, this breakfast casserole is quick and easy to make, taking only 20-30 minutes to bake.

I'm always trying to find healthy breakfast options for our family. I would like to share with you the best breakfast recipe that gives you the healthy eating option of french toast and satisfies your sweet tooth. For this french toast recipe variation, I like to use a 9 x 11 and a 9 by 7 casserole dish. I will show you the steps to prepare the bread and make the 'egg' mixture and the sweet cinnamon spread.

Try it on Saturday and you and your family will love it.

Recipe Step #1: The 'Egg' Mixture
'Egg Mixture' Ingredients List
- 7 medium to large eggs
- 2 cups 'schlagsahne' liquid whipped cream (2 cups half & half)
- 1 cup milk
- 2 vanilla sugar packets(2 tbsp sugar, 1 tsp vanilla extract)
- 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
- 1/2 tsp ground nutmeg
- 1 pinch(1/8 tsp) salt
Combining the 'Egg' mixture ingredients
  1. Combine step #1 ingredients in a large mixing bowl
    (mix with hand mixer on low)
  2. Take care mixing, you don't want mixture too bubbly or frothy
  3. Set aside & prepare the other steps french toast recipe steps
Recipe Step #2: 'Sweet Cinnamon Spread'
Sweet Cinnamon Spread Ingredients List
- 1 cup (250g) butter
- 1 full cup packed brown sugar
- 3 Tbsp ground cinnamon
- 2 Tbsp ground nutmeg
- 1 Tbsp wheatgerm(optional)
Combining the 'Sweet Cinnamon Spread' ingredients
  1. With your mixer, cream the butter in a large mixing bowl
  2. Add the brown sugar to the butter and cream it well
  3. Stir with a plastic spatula(granular texture means keep 'creaming')
  4. Mix through the cinnamon and nutmeg(plus optional wheatgerm)
  5. Set the cinnamon spread aside
The texture of this spread will depend on the 'creaming' you do in this step. Take extra time here to make applying the spread easier and ensuring your complete taste satisfaction.

Recipe Step #3: The 'French Toast'
'French Toast' Ingredients
- 2 750 or 1000g breads
Choose your bread. we have tried this cinnamon french toast recipe with:
  • 2 french bread loafs
  • 2 baguettes
  • 2 Ciabatta loafs
  • 10 bio health buns

Add variety to your bread choices and mix it up a bit. We have had mixes of regular kaiser buns with rye and whole wheat buns, and even different Ciabatta bread flavors like original and walnut. Cut the breads into 3cm thick slices and arrange them into loosely fitting rows in the casserole dishes. Any extra bread can be used for snack sandwiches, garlic bread with cheese or as crumbs in making homemade burgers and meatballs. Soak each slice of bread into the 'egg' mixture from step #1 and arrange them into the casserole dishes. If you prefer to simply pour the 'egg' mixture over the bread while in the casserole dishes, make sure all the bread does get egg-soaked.

Using a knife, spread the sweet cinnamon spread on both sides and the top of each slice of bread. This will get a bit messy but the end result will be wonderful on your taste buds. Cover both casserole dishes with parchment paper and place them on the middle rack of your oven at 200 degrees Celsius for 20-30 minutes (check it doesn't burn,it should be browned and the eggs cooked through). Remove from the oven and cool on wire racks for 5-10 minutes. Serve and enjoy.
