Ingredients

  • 1 bread loaf stale white bread for better results
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/3 cup milk for richer taste, use heavy cream
  • Generous Pinch Salt
  • 1/3 cup white sugar
  • 1 tablespoon cinnamon powder
  • 4 tablespoon butter unsalted

To Serve

  • Pure Maple Syrup
  • Fresh Berries

Instructions

  • Cut stale bread loaf into equal sized thick strips.
  • Trim off the crust on the edges. I prefer to trim the crust due to it's mild bitter taste plus it gives neater batons without the crust. If you don’t mind the crust, leave them on.
  • Cut each slice into 2(or 3) equal sized thick sticks. Set aside.
  • In a bowl, crack 2 whole eggs. Pour in milk and add a pinch of salt.
  • Whisk together until combined.
  • In another plate mix together caster sugar and cinnamon powder. Set aside.
  • Melt 2 tablespoon of butter in a skillet.
  • Quickly roll bread sticks in egg mixture, do not soak the bread in egg mixture even for seconds. Roll, shake off excess egg mixture and place it on hot skillet.
    Cook’s-Tip: You need to move quick and make sure you do not soak the bread in egg mixture. You need to move fast while rolling all side in egg mixture and shake off excess.
  • Using stale bread is crucial at this stage. Fresh bread will soak up egg-milk mix and will flop.
  • Cook on medium low flame, flipping the bread sticks on all sides until golden brown.
  • Once bread sticks are golden brown remove from pan and coat with cinnamon sugar.
    Pro-Tip: Cinnamon sugar will stick to the French toast sticks only if it’s hot. Transfer hot cinnamon French toast sticks from pan to cinnamon sugar plate quickly. Coat on all sides.
  • Repeat the process for all the sticks.
  • Serve immediately hot with maple syrup served on side for dipping or drench the cinnamon fresh toast sticks in maple syrup drizzle. Serve with fresh berries for complete breakfast experience.

Notes

  1. Use staple bread loaf. Fresh bread will soak up egg-milk mixture and turn soggy. Your bread sticks will flop.
  2. Keep thick batons or slices of bread sticks. It makes it easy to handle while cooking and easy to eat with hands without breaking.
  3. Move fast while rolling bread sticks in egg mixture. Ensure to shake off excess.
  4. Soon as bread sticks of rolled in egg mixture, place it on skillet to start cooking. Leaving it aside for even few seconds will turn the bread sticks soggy and it’ll break when you try to pick them up.
  5. Cook on medium low flame. Egg-milk coating will make the exterior of the bread stick turn brown very quickly. You want it to be uniformly golden brown on all side.
  6. Cinnamon sugar will stick to the French toast sticks only if it’s hot. Transfer hot cinnamon French toast sticks from pan to cinnamon sugar plate quickly.
