Of course, any bread will work, but I used the cinnamon swirl. Why not go all the way?
Cinnamon Swirl French Toast
Serves 2-3, depending on your appetites
6-8 slices of day old (or a few days old) bread
canola for frying bread
1 cup soy milk
1 tsp vanilla
1/4 tsp salt
1 Tbsp sugar OR 1 tsp lemon zest OR 1 tsp orange zest (all optional, none necessary)
2/3 cup flour
1 tsp cinnamon
Dump the milk in a low flat pan that you can mix your batter in, like a pie plate. Add the vanilla, salt and sugar or citrus peel if you are using any of them. Add the flour and the cinnamon, then mix together lightly with a fork. You don’t want to get the lumps out, just get everything combined. If you get down to the last pieces of bread and the batter seems too thick, add a little more soy milk and mix. When the oil is really hot in the frying pan, douse the bread in the batter and fry until light brown. Turn over to brown the other side, then enjoy with earth balance and maple syrup!
