French toast and corn flakes

When you read this title you may think I am talking about a nice breakfast of french toast and corn flakes.
But this post is only about french toast; made amazing by being dipped in corn flakes and brown sugar.

My sister and i have an obsession with french toast. We will eat it any time, anywhere. My dad makes some stuffed with cream cheese and berries. This version however was a knew kind altogether for us. After dipping the french toast in the batter, I dredged them with corn flakes and brown sugar, and fried them in butter they were absolutely delicious!

makes 6 pieces

2/3 cups milk (add more if there is not enough)
1/4 cup cream (optional)
3 eggs
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon vanilla
6 slices french bread
1 cup crushed corn flakes
2 teaspoon dark brown sugar

Mix together milk, cream, eggs, cinnamon, and vanilla in shallow bowl. Add the bread and let soak for 3-5 minutes. While the bread is soaking, in a separate bowl crush the cornflakes and brown sugar. Dredge the the bread in the corn flakes. fry the bread in butter until golden brown on both sides. Enjoy!
