Recipe by momaphet
READY IN: 25mins


  • 1
    loaf of day old bread, sliced into 1-2 inch thick slices (french bread works well)
  • 2
    cups milk
  • 6 -10
    eggs, whisked
  • 1
    teaspoon vanilla, not traditional but delicious
  • 1
    cup sugar
  • 1
    tablespoon cinnamon
  • vegetable oil (for frying)


  • While the oil heats combine your sugar and cinnamon together in a deep plate ( deep dish pie plates or square pyrex dishes work well). Place the beaten eggs in another one, and then the milk mixed with vanilla in another. Set up the station to make it as easy as possible for you.
  • Take the oil and fill a dutch oven with about 3-4 inches of oil. Keep the oil nice and hot , you'll want it around 365 degrees You can test to see if the oil is ready by putting a little bit of flour in and seeing if it starts to fry.
  • Once the oil is ready dip your bread in the milk on both sides, let it drip an excess off, then go to the eggs and drench the slices in that. let the excess drip off of it again.
  • Then CAREFULLY place it into the oil. Let it get nice and lightly golden brown on both side.
  • Remove from oil and place into the cinnamon and sugar mixture and cover all sides place on platter that is covered with paper towels to catch any left over oil.
  • Serve warm.
