I've been making homemade French toast for years. Everyone in my household loves my recipe and it's a super simple one at that.
But there really isn't that much to it. The secret to my sweet and oh so flavorful French toast is the bread. Don't get me wrong, the syrup is just as important. True maple syrup from the tree. None of this corn syrup stuff.
What makes my French toast stand out from everyone else's? It's the bread. If you are going to make delicious, melt in your mouth, sweet cinnamon French toast, you've got to find a freshly baked loaf of cinnamon swirl bread from the bakery section of your grocery store. Skip the regular bread aisle.
Trust me it makes all the difference. Enjoy!
