A delicious take on classic french toast. This cinnamon bread french toast is perfect for a simple holiday breakfast or brunch.
My family loves making this Gluten-Free french toast on Christmas morning. I make this recipe with my gluten-free cinnamon quick bread. It takes classic french toast to the next level with that extra burst of cinnamon flavor. Try this cinnamon bread french toast for a relaxing family breakfast this Christmas, or make it ahead of time and serve it for a holiday brunch.
Any type of gluten-free store-bought or homemade bread will work. Bread with seeds and nuts are not recommended, as they may alter the taste of the french toast. Thick slices of bread work better for french toast. The bread slices should be sturdy enough for soaking up the egg mixture so they don't fall apart.
Slightly stale bread is also better. Stale bread allows the egg mixture to better absorb without the bread slices becoming soggy.
TIP: Let your bread sit out on the counter for about 30 minutes prior to cooking to dry it out a bit.
Yes. Mix up the egg mixture the day before and store it in an airtight container in the refrigerator.
