This Cinnamon Swirl French Toast is to all my French toast lovers! It’s so delicious, it’s like eating dessert. It’s a combination of cinnamon swirl bread and French toast at the same time and the result is amazing!
WHAT BREAD TO USE FOR THE CINNAMON SWIRL FRENCH TOAST:
So for all my French toast recipes, I love using brioche toast bread. I always find a really good kind at Sprouts but you can buy yours at any local market or bakery. Be sure to buy a thicker cut of bread if you are buying them pre-cut.
HOW TO MAKE THE CINNAMON SWIRL FRENCH TOAST:
Place a piece of bread on a cutting board and using a table knife, make a swirl incision in the toast to form a pocket. Drizzle the cinnamon sugar mixture into the swirl you cut and let them sink through by letting it rest for about 3-5 minutes. Meanwhile prepare the egg wash and pre-heat your pancake griddle or pan.
Spray or butter the griddle. Dip the toast into the egg wash on both sides and them place on the griddle to cook. Sear both sides for 3-4 minutes on medium heat or until the toast forms a nice golden color on the outside. Remove and serve with your favorite syrup and fresh fruits. I did not use any pancake or maple syrup for this recipe but I did made a sugar glaze using confectioner sugar and drizzled some on top. It tasted even better than a Cinnabon Roll!
