4 thick slices of slightly stale white bread (1″/2.5cm thick) (Note 1)
2 large eggs (or 3 small eggs)
¼ cup milk
Pinch of salt
¼ cup white sugar
½ tsp cinnamon powder
3 tbsp butter, separated
Maple syrup to serve (not optional!)
1 Cut the crust off the bread, then cut each piece into 9 equal cubes.
2 Whisk the eggs, milk and salt in a medium bowl.
3 Combine sugar and cinnamon in a shallow bowl.
4 Melt 1½ tbsp of butter in a fry pan over medium high heat. Don’t let the butter brown.
5 Quickly toss half the bread cubes in the egg mixture and use your hands to shake off excess egg mixture. Place the bread cubes in the fry pan and use a wooden spoon to “sauté” them until browned on all sides – about 2 to 3 minutes.
6 Remove the bread cubes from the fry pan straight into the sugar mixture. Toss to coat, then remove onto a plate.
7 Repeat with remaining bread cubes.
8 Serve immediately, with maple syrup for dipping.
