Brown Sugar Cinnamon French Toast


Talk about delicious. This brown sugar cinnamon french toast is a serious must try and perfect for a special Thanksgiving brunch. I have made it four times already this winter and it just gets better every time. Make it ahead of time and save yourself the extra hours in bed in the morning. Not to mention the leftovers are JUST as good the next day. Maybe even double the recipe so that there’s enough to go around … trust me you will need it!!! Serve with a mug of coffee and your morning can’t get much better. I can’t wait to make this for brunch over the Christmas holidays and surprise my guests in bed …

    1. It is a vanilla bean, available in most grocery stores near the vanilla extract. It’s often called a pod because it is similar to a pod in that you cut it open and scrape out the tiny flecks of vanilla bean to use as flavouring.
