6 slices of your favorite gluten free bread (we use Hearty Italian from the Dempsey Bakery)
1/2 stick of butter
1 cup heavy cream
1/2 cup milk
3 beaten large eggs
1 tsp cinnamon
2 Tbsp Brown Sugar (more if you want it sweeter)
1.) lay bread out in a large casserole dish and pour 1/2 the batter over the bread. Let sit for 5 to 10 minutes. Flip the bread over and soak for an additional 5 to 10 minutes.
2.) heat a couple of pads of butter in a flat skillet on Medium heat and cook bread until brown on one side. Flip bread and brown on second side.
3.) continue with steps 1 and 2 until all bread is cooked.
Enjoy with syrup
The Hearty Italian bread soaks up the mixture without getting gummy and cooks firm on the outside and soft in the middle. I have not tried this recipe with other gluten free breads, but I suspect that the denser nature of gluten free bread is what allows this french toast to have such a great texture after it is cooked.
