French toast à la Nicki

Nicki's is the best French toast bread ever. Soft, chewy and just light enough.

1 cup milk
3 eggs
1 tsp vanilla
1/4 tsp cinnamon
8 thick slices Nicki's buttermilk seed bread

Whisk together the milk, eggs, vanilla and cinnamon. Pour mixture into a pie pan and set aside.

Over medium-low heat, melt a small pat of of butter in a large nonstick frying pan.

Dip a slice of bread into egg mixture. Allow to soak for 30 seconds on each side, then place in frying pan. Cook 2 slices of bread at a time in the pan and cook until golden brown, approximately 2 to 3 minutes per side. Remove from pan and place on rack in warm oven.

Repeat with all 8 slices.

Serve immediately with maple syrup, powdered sugar, whipped cream or fruit.
