For the Cream Cheese Icing:

  • 4 ounces cream cheese, softened
  • 1/4 cup powdered sugar
  • 2-3 tablespoons milk or cream
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

Instructions:

1. Prepare the French Toast Batter:

  • In a shallow bowl or dish, whisk together the eggs, milk, vanilla extract, ground cinnamon, and a pinch of salt until well combined.

2. Make the Cinnamon Sugar Topping:

  • In another shallow bowl or dish, mix together the granulated sugar and ground cinnamon to make the cinnamon sugar topping. Set aside.

3. Dip the Bread:

  • Dip each slice of bread into the egg mixture, allowing it to soak for a few seconds on each side.

4. Cook the French Toast:

  • Heat a skillet or griddle over medium heat and add a pat of butter.
  • Place the dipped bread slices onto the skillet or griddle and cook for 2-3 minutes on each side, or until golden brown and cooked through. Repeat with the remaining slices of bread, adding more butter to the skillet as needed.

5. Coat in Cinnamon Sugar:

  • While the French toast is still warm, dip each slice into the cinnamon sugar topping, coating both sides generously.

6. Make the Cream Cheese Icing:

  • In a small bowl, beat together the softened cream cheese, powdered sugar, milk or cream, and vanilla extract until smooth and creamy. Adjust the consistency by adding more milk or cream if needed.

7. Serve:

  • Place the cinnamon sugar-coated French toast slices onto serving plates.
  • Drizzle the cream cheese icing over the French toast slices.
  • Optionally, garnish with extra cinnamon sugar or fresh berries.
