  • Form the egg mixture: In a bowl beat the eggs, milk and cinnamon together. Pour into a shallow bowl.
  • Soak the bread: Take each slice of bread and dip it into the egg mixture, and allow the bread to soak up some of the mixture. In a large skillet, melt a little butter on medium high heat. Add 2 or 3 slices of bread into the skillet or as many as you can fit and fry the bread until brown on both sides. Repeat with remaining bread slices.
  • Finish the dish: Serve hot with butter, maple syrup and fresh berries. Delicious.
