Many of you know I have loved french toast since I was a little girl. So I could be considered a connoisseur of french toast. Several years ago, I had the opportunity to get my first taste of Kneaders Chunky Cinnamon French Toast. Kneaders is a terrific local bakery. The french toast is made using their chunky cinnamon bread and is paired with their signature caramel syrup. Their syrup is what makes this extra tasty. It is also served with strawberries and whipped cream on the side that in my opinion must be utilized when eating their magnificent french toast.
At Kneaders, you get all you can eat of this stuff for $4.99.
However, one plate (2 slices) of this stuff is definitely enough to fill your belly. However, I have been know to eat 3 pieces on occasion (then I definitely have to skip lunch that day). Kneader’s has given out a copy of their recipe that you can make at home in the oven. I however, came up with my own version and it would be perfect to serve up for Mother’s Day breakfast, but really it is excellent for ANY breakfast.
With the recipe I created, you make the french toast the night before. This way those thick slices of bread have plenty of time to get proper soaked in the egg mixture. Then all you have to do is fry it up in the morning. I also went right to Kneader’s and purchased their bread to make it. If you are local, you must do this. It is well worth just getting the bread from them.
If you aren’t where you can get Kneader’s bread, then use another cinnamon type loaf of bread. You just want to made sure it is a good and sturdy bread not some wimpy airy loaf. If you don’t care about having a cinnamon bread, an artisan bread could even be used in it’s place.
No matter what bread you use to make the french toast, you simple must make the caramel syrup to top it with. And be sure to include sweetened whipped cream and strawberries too!Print
