Always select whole grain fresh bread for making toast. The reason is that it is always full of nutrients and considered as healthier than other white starch filled breads.
A next important ingredient is egg. As discussed earlier that one jumbo egg is enough for two pieces of bread. Therefore, you can take the quantity of eggs accordingly. Cinnamon is another ingredient that you would like to include in toast making. Sprinkle it enough on the egg to cover it with a thin layer at least. However, you need to mix it together ultimately, but only to estimate that you are including the right amount of cinnamon or not. If you are expert enough, and have your things properly placed, you can cover up all above stuff in just 30 seconds.
Next step is to beat the eggs and add cinnamon into that batter. You can use a hand mixer, wire whisk, fork, or any other kitchen tool to make eggs better beaten into a consistent and smooth batter.
Start with beating eggs, once they have done sprinkle cinnamon into the beaten eggs and mix it thoroughly. You can add more cinnamon than recommended if you like the strong cinnamon taste, and similarly you can add lesser than recommended level as well. This complete step will take not more than 30 second.
Next is the main step of cooking of French toast that can take three to four minutes in total. Take one fresh piece of bread and soak it with the batter you prepared earlier. Dip the piece well by the use of kitchen for or any other tool and flip it to soak its other side perfectly. Now place it into the skillet and cook both of its sides for one minute, and your delicious French toasts are ready to eat. Serve it with sugar, maple syrup, ship cream or any other topping you would enjoy more.
