Easy King’s Hawaiian French Toast

Easy King's Hawaiian French Toast

The last time Bill and I were up in Sacramento, we had brunch at the cutest restaurant I’ve been to in a while. The High Hand Cafe is inside an old greenhouse {or atrium, not quite sure} nestled in between some lovely gardens; there’s even a nursery you can browse while waiting for a table. As soon as my eyes crossed the menu, I knew I was getting my favorite brunch item—eggs benedict. Even though my mind was quickly made, I couldn’t help perusing the rest of the menu for new recipe ideas. The Brioche French Toast stopped me in my tracks. Hmmm, that didn’t seem too hard to make. I always find myself stuck in a breakfast rut, either my go-to spinach acai smoothies on weekdays or easy peasy breakfast sandwiches on Saturday or Sunday. I forgot how easy it is to whip up a sweet breakfast treat—not only was this recipe quicker to make than breakfast sandwiches, but it was definitely more satisfying for my sweet tooth 🙂

Easy King's Hawaiian French Toast

8 slices King’s Hawaiian Bread (leave out overnight, if possible)
4 large eggs
1 cup heavy cream
2 1/2 teaspoons cinnamon
1 teaspoon nutmeg
1 Tablespoon sugar
1 Tablespoon vanilla extract
Unsalted butter, for cooking
Maple syrup, for serving
Powdered Sugar, for sprinkling

Easy King's Hawaiian French Toast

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

Shake off any excess and place the coated bread on a paper towel lined baking sheet. Repeat with the remaining pieces of bread.

Heat a large pan over medium heat and add 2 tablespoons of butter. Once the butter has melted, place two slices of bread at a time in the pan. Cook until golden brown on one side then flip, about 2 minutes, and continue cooking until the other side is golden brown and slightly crisped. Repeat with remaining slices.

Serve immediately. Sprinkle with powdered sugar and serve with warmed maple syrup.
