1 cup milk

3 large eggs, beaten

1/4 cup sugar

2 teaspoons cinnamon

4 tablespoons unsalted butter

8 thick slices of white bread (about 3/4 of a white sandwich or Pullman loaf, cut into 3/4-inch slices)

Hot pure maple syrup, for serving (2 tablespoons per serving)

Strawberries, for garnish, optional


  1. 1. Preheat an oven to 200F; fit a wire rack on baking pan and place in oven.
  2. 1. Whisk milk and eggs in a large shallow dish. Whisk sugar and cinnamon in a small bowl. Set aside.
  3. 2. Heat a large skillet over medium heat. Add 1/2 tablespoon butter and swirl to coat pan. Dip 2 slices of bread into egg mixture and place in skillet. Sprinkle cinnamon sugar on top and cook until bottom browns and crisps, about 4 minutes. Flip toast, adding butter if needed, and cook until golden, about 3 minutes more. Transfer toast to baking pan in oven. Repeat with remaining bread and batter. Serve with maple syrup and strawberries.
