  • 2 Eggs
  • 1 cup milk
  • 2 teaspoons Ground Cinnamon
  • 5 slices bread
  • 1 teaspoon sugar optional
  • 5 tablespoon salted butter
  • maple syrup


  • Combine eggs, milk, ground cinnamon, sugar(optional) in a shallow bowl, and mix thoroughly.
  • Place a skillet over medium heat, grease with half tablespoon of salted butter
  • Dunk a slice of bread in the mixture of eggs, milk, ground cinnamon. Dip and flip to ensure the bread absorbs the mixture but not too much.
  • Place the bread on the greased skillet and cook each side for about 3 mins or until brown.
  • Repeat until done
  • Serve and enjoy with syrup or topped with fruits of your choice


I use Texas toast because of its thickness but you can use any type of bread.
