READY IN: 40mins
Recipe by lazyme

From the L’Auberge Del Mar Resort and Spa in Del Mar, California, this is a great French Toast. You will probably have to buy the cinnamon-raisin bread at a bakery to get the thick slices.

Loved the flavors of this but mine didn't puff up. It had a hard crust which was better after it sat for a few minutes. Served with some homemade chokecherry syrup.
