Cinnamon Raisin French Toast

Our family LOVES French toast, we make it almost every weekend. A morning that starts with French toast is always a good morning, trust me! Well, we recently made French toast with Raisin’ the Roof! bread by Dave’s Killer Bread and we are officially hooked. The cinnamon raisin bread makes the best French toast!

And I know some of you are probably in the raisin hater club, but our family loves raisins in all things…cookies, cinnamon rolls, energy bites, and now French toast. Bring on the raisins, we love them, and I think you will too. Give this cinnamon raisin bread a chance. It is SO good, especially in French toast form.

Easy Breakfast Treat

You don’t need to go out to breakfast or brunch because this French toast recipe is easy to whip up at home. You can enjoy a special breakfast in your own kitchen, in your pajamas, which is a big time bonus. I love lazy AND delicious mornings at home.

It all starts with the most perfect cinnamon raisin bread. The Raisin’ the Roof! bread isn’t your ordinary breakfast bread! It is power-packed with whole grain nutrition and made with no high fructose corn syrup. It is also very hearty and holds up to make a killer piece of French toast.

Favorite French Toast

The cinnamon raisin bread brings out the cinnamon flavor in the French toast even more and that is a VERY good thing. If you want to go all out, you can sprinkle each piece of French toast with a little cinnamon sugar. You can also top the French toast with the classic toppings: butter, maple syrup, and a dusting of powdered sugar. I always like to add a few berries for a pop of color too!

Make your morning extra special with Cinnamon Raisin French Toast!

    great twist on the classic and great time of year for fun breakfasts like this, haven;t otherwise made french toast the classic version or a modified version like this recipe in years so thank you for this recipe

  2. 3 adds to get to the page. another popped up when I got to the page and scrolls with me . and now they are in the recipe too. 11 ads? I know you need it to make money but when it interferes with making the things you provide…I have to unsubscribe.

    Excellent!  I used my own homemade sourdough cinnamon swirl bread.  The egg to milk ratio is just right.  The French toast slices were light and fluffy.  The cinnamon and vanilla in the egg mixture add flavor.  I drizzled the slices with maple syrup, dusted with powdered sugar, and served with a side of wild blueberry sauce.  Delicious!
