From Fine Cooking
4 slices white sandwich bread (I used sliced brioche)
2 large eggs
1/2 c half-and-half (had to make my own with whole milk and cream)
1 tsp. vanilla
2 Tbs. sugar
1/4 tsp. salt
2 Tbs. unsalted butter
powdered sugar for dusting
maple syrup for serving
In a medium bowl, vigorously whisk the eggs and sugar until well combined. I also added a dash of cinnamon to the mix. Add the half-and-half, vanilla, 1/4 tsp. salt and whisk until combined.
In a medium nonstick skillet, melt a little of the butter over medium heat. Dredge the bread in the egg mixture and cook until nicely browned, about 2 minutes. I cooked 2 slices at a time. Turn each piece over with a spatula and cook until the other side is nicely browned, 1 1/2 to 2 minutes.
Sprinkle with powdered sugar and serve with maple syrup. Definitely a delicious alternative to pancakes.
