  • 4 double-thick slices whole grain cinnamon raisin bread (sister's sweet cinnamon - swirl bread is ideal)
  • 1/2 tbsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2-1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tbsp brown sugar
  • 3 tbsp 1% low-fat milk
  • 4 eggs


  1. On the lowest setting of your toaster, toast the slices of bread until just slightly blonde in colour and dry on the surface. Set aside.
  2. In a shallow dish, whisk together the vanilla, cinnamon and brown sugar to evenly distribute the cinnamon.
  3. Add the buttermilk and eggs and whisk to combine.
  4. Place a large frying pan (we use non-stick but cast iron would be awesome) over medium heat and add 1 tbsp of the butter.
  5. Two slices at a time, dip the toasted bread into the egg mixture and allow them to soak about 30 seconds on each side.
  6. When the pan is hot, add the soaked slices and cook for 5 minutes per side.
  7. Repeat with remaining bread, egg mixture and butter.
