In a large bowl, whisk together the eggs, heavy cream, cinnamon, sugar and vanilla. Dip each piece of bread in the egg mixture, turning to coat it on all sides so that it’s well-saturated with the custard.

Shake off any excess and place the coated bread on a large plate or baking dish. Repeat the dipping process with the remaining pieces of bread.

Heat a large sauté pan over medium heat and add the butter. Once the butter has melted, place several of the coated sticks in a single layer in the pan.  Cook until golden brown on one side then flip and continue cooking until the sticks are golden brown and slightly crisped on all edges.

Serve immediately with maple syrup for dipping and fresh fruit

Breakfast for champion

This is my family idea of breakfast for champions:crepes with nutella.

We seriously loved them and its so easy to do.

With this recipe you can make sweet crepes and salty crepes stuffed with ham,prosciutto mozzarella and more.

Ingredients for 8 crepes:

125 grams of flour
2 eggs
300 ml milk

Method:

In a bowl put the flour and gently pour the milk stirring with a whisk.

In a separate bowl put the eggs and gently beat them.

After that you can add them to the other bowl with the flour and milk.

Whisk nicely for few minutes and put the bowl in the fridge to rest for 30 minutes cover with plastic wrap.

Get your crepes pan ready,melt some butter and pour some of the batter and cook few minutes for side.

When your crepes are ready you can add nutella,jam,philadelphia cheese,fruit or anything that you like.
Sometime i just sprinkle some sugar and lemon juice but today we had them with nutella and strawberry

Enjoy
