  • 4 large eggs
  • 2/3 cup milk
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 8 thick slices bread


  • Preheat griddle to 350 degrees F or or heat a skillet over medium heat. Grease well with butter.
  • Add all ingredients, except the bread, to a blender or to a shallow dish and whisk well to combine. If whisking by hand, it's okay if the flour doesn't mix in completely smooth. 
  • Dip bread slices into the egg mixture, dredging them well on both sides, and place on hot, greased griddle or skillet.
  • Cook for a few minutes, until the bottom of the breads starts to get golden brown. Flip and cook on the other side the same. 
  • Remove to a plate. Serve warm, with syrup and a sprinkle of powdered sugar.
