Custardy French Toast

Serves: 7
Total Calories: 311


6 eggs, beaten
3/4 cup whipping cream
3/4 cup milk
1/4 cup sugar
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
1 loaf French bread, thickly sliced
2 tablespoons butter, divided
powdered sugar
In a large shallow bowl, whisk eggs, cream, milk, sugar and cinnamon until well blended. Dip bread slices one at a time into egg mixture, turning to allow both sides to absorb mixture. Melt one tablespoon butter on a non-stick griddle over medium heat. Cook for about 4 minutes per side, until golden and firm to the touch. Repeat with remaining butter and bread. Dust with powdered sugar, if desired. Serve with warm cinnamon syrup.
Cinnamon Syrup:
1 cup water
1 cup dark brown sugar, packed
2 tablespoons whipping cream
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon


Combine water and brown sugar in a heavy saucepan. Bring to a boil over high heat, stirring until sugar dissolves. Boil until syrup reduces to one cup, about 10 minutes. Remove from heat; whisk in cream and cinnamon. Serve warm. Syrup may be refrigerated, then rewarmed at serving time. Makes about 2 cups.
